The Art of Footwear

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston ran an exhibit called "Walk This Way." A total of 28 pairs of shoes were scattered throughout the galleries. More like a treasure hunt, it enabled museumgoers to experience these functional and fashionable works of art, alongside museum acquisitions.

Examples range from doll's boots (France, 1870s), Adidas basketball sneakers designed for Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics, woman's stilts (Turkey or Syria, 18th-19th century, made of wood inlaid with mother-of-pearl, ivory, wood, and silver).

The exhibit was on view from September, 2007 - March, 2008.
