The Boot is an elegant showcase of cutting-edge boots from around the world, designed by the worlds greatest footwear designers. The book explores the obsession, the fetish and the fashions associated with this iconic form of footwear. From riding boots to knee-high stilettos, from ankle boots to thigh-high lacers, The Boot will speak volumes to style-savvy shoe fashionistas. The book kicks off with a historical essay that charts the boots emergence from a primitive, felt-lined leather hide to a prime fashion artefact. In-depth spreads on the most important shoe designers working today, with photographs and illustrations of their recent creations, give a greater insight into their inspirations and techniques. The pictures are accompanied by anecdotes and descriptions, including details of materials, craft techniques, heel and toe styles, embroidery, beading and embellishment. Factual, informative and fun to read, The Boot promises to be the first history of boots ever published.
