Heights of Fashion: A History of the Elevated Shoe

Heights of Fashion: A History of the Elevated Shoe by Elizabeth Semmelhack, curator of Toronto's Bata Shoe Museum.
The book chronicles the history of women's (and men's) struggle to appear taller than they actually are. Drawing on historical sources, paintings and prints, this explores how and why shoes or boots with high heels came into common use throughout the last five centuries.
