Description: Shoe Obsession examines our culture's ever-growing fascination with extravagant and fashionable shoes. Accessories used to be just that?secondary to clothing fashions. Today, however, shoes have become the main fashion story, replacing the "It bag" as the most desirable accessory. High-heeled shoes "the fashion shoes of the 21st century" have become so tall that even a 4-inch heel is considered "low." Shoe Obsession features over 150 examples of the most extraordinary shoe styles of the 21st-century, highlighting the new concepts, constructions, materials, and types of embellishment that have positioned shoes at the height of fashion. The popularity of designer shoes has grown rapidly. The television series Sex in the City, which was broadcast from 1998 to 2004, is often credited with helping to launch the cult for designer shoes. Who can forget Carrie Bradshaw's Manolo Blahnik pumps ? or her assertion of "a woman's right to shoes." Blahnik's popularity paved the way for other high-end shoe designers, a number of whom have become celebrities in their own right. Christian Louboutin's undeniably sexy shoes?with their signature red soles?have established him as one of the best-known footwear designers in the world.
