While I rather freely admit to a peripheral interest in women’s shoes, I really can’t claim any particular expertise in the subject: I observe, I comment, and then I go and observe some more, but that’s about the extent of it. Certainly I am not so much as a patch on this guy:
Vintage high heels collector David Childs steps through the past 100 years of heel history. Childs has “a fascination” for the aesthetic appeal of high heels, and has turned his passion into a museum exhibit of 600 pairs of shoes. (And that’s just half his collection.) The heels will be on display at the Yakima Valley Museum for the rest of this year.
Video, just under four minutes, narrated by Childs, at the link. I am amused to note that his least-favorite decade seems to be the 1970s.
