Jane Gershon Weitzman's new book, Art and Sole, out this month from HarperCollins, features over 150 glorious images of shoes—made of everything from feathers and paper to frosting and crystals. Weitzman, wife of famed shoe designer Stuart Weitzman, is the mastermind behind the architecture and window displays of her husband’s eponymous Madison Avenue store, which typically features fantasy shoes, meant to be admired, not worn, and commissioned from artists around the world. "The response to my search for artists was extraordinary from the very start," Weitzman writes in the introduction. "While some of the artists already made 'art shoes,' most of them did not—and in the latter cases, there was something I saw in their work that I thought would translate into a creative window display ... Finding the artists became addictive for us—as was the thrill of seeing their finsihed pieces." This book serves as a compilation of the best shoe art, out of the thousands of designs that have appeared in the Stuart Weitzman windows since the store’s opening in 1996.
