Are You in High Heel Heaven?

high heel heaven imageReview by Ceri Wheeldon

Are you addicted to shoes? Anyone opening my cupboards or wardrobes will probably think I am! What is it about shoes that draws us in?

If you are addicted to heels then you’ll love Tracy Martin’s latest book High Heel Heaven. As Tracy explores the history of shoes , talks us through Vintage, Tribal, Artful, the shoes of the 50s and 70s, and how shoes have evolved. There is ultimately a shoe for everyone, the book is full of wonderful images of shoes. and includes wonderful shoe quotes such as:

“Give a girl the right shoe and she can conquer the world” Marilyn Monroe.

We all know women who are remembered for their footwear – Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, the interest taken in Teresa May’s leopard print stilettos at a party conference – we may not remember what she said but the images of the shoes hit the press!

Do we buy shoes for comfort or glamour?

From strappy to platforms, neon to classic, Tracy includes them all in this beautifully illustrated hard- backed book.

I love just flicking through the pages of this book and finding shoe treasures at each turn.

A fabulous book for all shoe lovers!
