Sole Obsession: 100 Years of Women’s Shoes from Kitten Heels to Power Pumps
The White River Valley Museum’s latest exhibit in Auburn , Washington. The , “Sole Obsession: 100 Years of Women’s Shoes from Kitten Heels to Power Pumps,” features a variety of shoes from 1910 to 2010. More than 100 pairs of shoes are displayed, representing the evolving changes by the women who wore them. A small description appears with each pair of shoes, which adds to the provenance of the exhibits. Most of the shoes are fashion-forward for their time but also represent the history of their era. Each decade has a separate shelf of 10 different pairs of shoes. The exhibition is made up of shoes kindly donated by many locals. The exhibition continues until Nov. 9 at the museum.
