Shoe Obsession examines our culture's ever-growing fascination with extravagant and fashionable shoes. Accessories used to be just that-secondary to clothing fashions. Today, however, shoes have become the main fashion story, replacing the "It bag" as the most desirable accessory.  High-heeled shoes "the fashion shoes of the 21st century" have become so tall that even a 4-inch heel is considered "low." 

Shoe Obsession features over 150 examples of the most extraordinary shoe styles of the 21st-century, highlighting the new concepts, constructions, materials, and types of embellishment that have positioned shoes at the height of fashion.
