Solemates: The Century in Shoes

Solemates: The Century in Shoes: “This site offers a decade-by-decade look at shoes and their place in fashion and culture from the 1900s-1990s. For each decade you can read an essay, view examples of footwear, see advertisements from the period, and view QuickTime “Scenes from the Decade.” There are also three feature articles: Dangerous Shoes, Ga-Ga for Gaza [Gaza Bowen, shoemaker], and Ruby Slippers. Includes a pre-20th century chronology of “great moments in shoe history.” (citation from Librarians Index to the Internet)
