Ever wondered what a boot inspired by a Beatles lyric looks like? What is a "Hug My Leg" shoe? And how about lace-ups inspired by 18th-century snuff boxes? From stilettos to loafers, wedges to jelly shoes, platforms to sandals, Nina Chakrabarti once again dazzles us with her creative flair and inspires us to look at footwear with fresh eyes. Vintage favorites are shown alongside Vietnamese slippers, Romany boots, and Louis heels, with famous designer pieces such as Vivienne Westwood's Rocking Horse golf shoe, Maison Martin Margiela's split-toe Tabi boot, and Camille Unglik's metallic Luna sandal.
