Little bit of shoe history

This shoe is so much fun to look at. And when you think that it comes from 1938 it looks like it could have been on the feet of any 1970s Studio 54 dancer, its forward-thinking style is that much more impressive. This is one of the earliest platform shoes ever made, by Salvatore Ferragamo, who is credited with ”inventing” the platform shoe, and it lives at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
