Bad Shoes & The Women Who Love Them
by Vanessa Davis Illustrator and Leora Tanenbaum Author
A fascinating cultural history and expose of uncomfortable women's shoes. This square, little book is way more substantial than it looks, offering thoughtful insights into footwear fashion, from four-inch high heels to ancient footbinding to the dilemma of Cinderella's sisters. Includes interviews with women about their experiences wearing, thinking, and talking about shoes, some high heel history, the science of how our shoe choice affects our bodies, and sound scientific advice about shoe shopping. We can have it all: health and fashion. This book is excellent at raising consciousness without passing judgment. Pick it up for yourself, then pass it along to a friend. And let's change our shoe culture for the better.
