Fusing exquisite design with engineering, shoe design is quite unlike any other fashion discipline. Feted in fashion magazines and on television, shoes have become more coveted, more collectible and more expensive in recent years, and contemporary footwear design is now one of the most important and interesting areas of the fashion industry. Showcasing some of the most exciting and innovative contemporary footwear designers from across the globe, this book reflects the rich and diverse range of cutting-edge design. Using specially commissioned photography, never before published sketches, and original design material, "New Shoes" brings together a rich mix of desirable shoes, sandals and boots to illustrate the unique blend of design skill and craftsmanship that footwear design demands.
