All About Shoes
Take a fascinating virtual journey and experience the many facets of footwear: its evolution and symbolism through the ages, the methods and materials of its manufacture and its place in our imaginations.
The BSM’s flagship exhibition, "All About Shoes: Footwear Through the Ages," is a voyage through four and a half millennia of shoes. As well as presenting an engaging overview of the history of footwear, "All About Shoes" also explores the wider context of our fascinating collection.
