Shoes hold a special place in the hearts of many people, and their design can range from the humble and practical to the exquisite. Whether mass-produced or individually hand-crafted, designed for practicality or to make a bold fashion statement, shoes never fail to exert a fascination on the popular imagination. Here, the Design Museum studies the top fifty shoe designs that have made an impact in the world of design today - from the 1863 Frye boot worn by soldiers during the American Civil War to Zaha Hadid's futuristic 2008 Melissa shoe, and many in between. Discover the social changes that affected the evolution of shoe design, and the developments in technology that transformed the manufacture of footwear. With stunning photography selected by the Design Museum, Fifty Shoes That Changed the World is the perfect gift for fashionistas and design enthusiasts of all ages.
