FIT has a shoe porn exhibit


Check it out The Museum of FIT in NYC has a new exhibit featuring over 150 pieces of contemporary footwear.  You will see your favorite designers like Christian Louboutin amongst the shoes featured.

This exhibit is important and so necessary, because guess what...shoes are at an all time high {not hard to believe}. Shoes have doubled with in the past decade according to Valerie Steele.

Valerie Steele, museum curator and fashion historian, American women own twice as many shoes on average than they did ten years ago. “We realized that we were in an era of unprecedented shoe obsession,” she told us over email. Steele believes that shoes have taken over handbags as the new “it” accessory, simply because “shoes are more fun than bags.”

A book will be available on April 1 {'Shoe Obssession'} about the entire exhibit.

Check out a few of the shoes in the exhibit below!
