Art HistoryFrom earliest times, footwear has served as a reflection of current fashion trends and designersí visions. The more than two thousand shoes in the Metropolitan Museumís Costume Institute are cherished both as artifacts of social history and as inspirations for future styles. They allow a fascinating glimpse into the lives and times of those who made and wore them. Balancing function and fantasy, the great designers of the twentieth century created some of the most beautiful shoes ever made, often adapting styles from the past with a contemporary sensibility.
