Our Shoes, Shoes, Shoes, Ballpoint Pen is designed with colorful renderings of shoes in the Museum’s Costume Institute collection. Featuring an array of styled pumps and heels, our pen is fit to satisfy the true shoes enthusiast. From earliest times, footwear has served as a reflection of current fashion trends and designers’ visions. The more than two thousand shoes in the Metropolitan Museum’s 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.
