It’s hard to imagine a time before shoes. What started out as practical invention has grown into a varied, booming industry concerned just as much with art as it is function. Though all shoes share basic characteristics, colors, materials, and designs have transformed drastically over thousands of years. At the beginning of modern footwear, in Europe’s early Baroque period, men’s and women’s shoes were very similar, though fashions and materials differed among social classes. It wasn’t until the early 1800s, they began to differ in style, color, heel, and toe shape. Jump ahead to last few decades of the 20th century where the female presence in the workplace grew along with their heels. Platforms and wedges became popular in the early seventies, though became less-so in the 80s and 90s. These days, there are shoes for every occasion, mood, and preference. There has also been a movement away from styles that focus primarily on comfort and function, as many designers are shifting interest from a matter of practicality to that of aesthetics. If footwear trends continue in this fashion, we can expect the shoes of the future to be even more out-of-this-world.
“I’m giving 2 of them to my friends who love shoes also. I especially enjoy the ones I consider “Classic” and or “Sassy”! At 83 I’m to old to wear high heel anymore, but I sure can reminisce!” -momadee
