A new exhibition at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology Museum is all about fabulous footwear.
Shoes make for feel-good shopping. You’re never too fat for footwear, never too washed out… Small wonder we’re obsessed with what’s on our feet. A new exhibition at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology focuses on just that. Carrie Bradshaw et al paved the way for the rest of us shoe obsessives, making household names of Christian Louboutin and Jimmy Choo. How better to catalogue our compulsive streak than with 150 examples of the hottest, highest and most heavenly heels?
Shoe Obsession runs 8 February—13 April, The Museum at FIT (fitnyc.edu). See more shoe images below.

I don’t know how you can walk in some of those shoes but the Nicholas Kirkwood and the Invisible shoes by Andreia Chaves are by far my favorites.
