New book from the London Design Museum’s “Changed the World” series will be available next month. “Fifty Shoes That Changed the World” lists the top 50 shoe designs that have made a substantial impact in the world of design today. From the 1863 Frye boot to Zaha Hadid’s 2008 Melissa shoe, each entry offers a short appraisal to explore what has made their iconic status and the designers that give them a special place in design history. Other shoes to receive the historical treatment include the Galosh, Platform Shoes, The Waffle Trainer and Crocs .
