I'll Never Look at Shoes the Same Way Again!

Women Ankle Down Story Define

Women Ankle Down Story Define

"Women From the Ankle Down" is a biography of The Shoe that hits all the high points, beginning in 1900 and ending with the present-day obsession with those Manolos, Ferragamos, and those red-soled Louboutins. Throughout, a certain famous pair of Shoes, the Ruby Slippers pop up and click their heels together.

Bergstein knows about them all, the wedges, the stilettos, go-go boots, Doc Martens, Reebok, Nike, and Adidas, Berkenstocks. Reading this book was a fun trip through the 20th Century from the vantage point of shoes. I learned what that bizarre fashion combo from the '80s was all about- when women everywhere wore their white hi-tops with their power suits- it had a very practical beginning. I learned all about how those Ruby Slippers came to be, and about the shoemakers who were Manolo, Ferragamo, and Louboutin, as well as some other big-name shoemakers who've risen up in the last century.

Shoes are a kind of shorthand, and they carry with them a kind of power all their own. In reading this fun book, now I "get it" better. Like the shoes she writes about, Rachelle Bergstein and her book are just fabulous!
