New book: 50 shoes that changed the world

The London Design Museum’s “Changed the World” series will have a new edition 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.
