    I received this book as a 2012 Christmas present It s fairly interesting and an easy read Not excessively enlightening because sometimes they just explain that a shoe had a great design and that s why it was important but I m not really sure how it changed the world Also a disadvantage of this book is that it didn t cause me to want to research the shoes The details of each shoe are limited to one page, which would lead the reader to crave knowledge about each shoe I didn t experience that which was disappointing.

    The shoes we wear are most often chosen for fit and comfort But fashion trends also influence our choice of shoes This fascinating and informative book presents a short history of 50 specific shoes which have made a significant impact on fashion The book s focus ranges from the simple flip flop, to Frye boots, Doc Martens, stilettos, Air Jordans, Manolo s Manolo Blahnik , Jimmy Choo s plus many The Design Museum celebrates them all

    I love this book It gives a good snippet of how Nike came about, how the Air Jordan became popular, what inspired Louboutin in making his shoes I highly recommend this book for people who love shoes

    I don t believe most of these shoes have changed the world but an entertaining look at some shoes.

    A fun overview of the history of some famous shoes They never actually explain how those shoes changed anything about the world, though.

    I found the book interesting but it fell a little short to me It explained what the shoe was all about but I am looking for why it became historical.
