5.0 out of 5 stars If you love fashion history this is a must have 26 Dec 2010
By BusyBaker - Published on Amazon.com
I received this book as a Christmas gift and it is simply wonderful. As a shoe lover I have been given many 'shoe books' over the years--many of which are simply art books showcasing some wacky designs--but this one is different. It offers a thorough history of shoe manufacturers and retailers (many long gone but nonetheless significant) and highlights brands that everyday women wore or still wear. There are some beautiful photos of the shoe styles of our mothers and grandmothers, as well as many current designers of 2010. I was especially intrigued by the vintage shoe ads from newspapers and magazines scattered throughout. This is not a precious art book but rather a wonderfully illustrated encylopedia that offers some delicious eye candy along with a fascinating history of shoe brands.

Please note: The cover of this book is different than pictured above; please see Customer Images for a photo of the actual cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shoes A-Z 14 Jan 2012
By Lilly Ford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
An encyclopedic look at the most famous shoe designers and brands starting from the 1950s onwards. The book covers most of the known labels in an alphabetic format.
The text is clear and informative to give just the right about of information about each designer and his/her sources of inspiration. The book is also loaded with clear color photos representing the creations of the featured designers along with some interesting advertisements. The book is not a complete history, but kind of an illustrated overview and it succeeds in this respect.
A worthy addition for any shoe lover and fashion in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars great new book for shoes - 1950s-today! 17 Dec 2010
By langleys - Published on Amazon.com
We just got a copy of Jonathan Walford's new book, "Shoes A-Z, Designers, Brands, Manufacturers and Retailers and love it! Anyone who loves shoes will certainly not be disappointed, tons of fascinating info and beautiful photos of hundreds of to-die-for shoes! It's hard to pick a favorite, but the Chelsea Cobbler purple leathers 60s boots, with sun, moons & stars would have to be it... or maybe the stained glass Peter Kaisers 1970s boots on pg. 183 ... or the "faces" multicolored Sergio Rossi's on pg. 208?...
