Art History

The Metropolitan Museums Costume Institute houses over 5,000 examples of shoes throughout history and across cultures. The collection includes shoes dating back to the fourteenth century, in which materials used to make them included thick woven cloth, wool felt, and various grades of leather. Shoes became more functional and affordable to the middle class as more technology and industrialization advanced around the late eighteenth century. It was not until the twentieth century that designers took creative reign on shoes, experimenting with materials, styles, and construction. Shoes by designers and manufacturers such as Roger Vivier, Salvatore Ferragamo, Vivienne Westwood, Herbert Levine, Manolo Blahnik, and Charles Jourdan can be found in The Costume Institute collection.
