shoes, shoes, SHOES!!!


Still in Florence and in another corporate museum, this time the one of Salvatore Ferragamo. Pretty much all shoes, beautiful prototypes form the ’30’s and ’40’s all placed in dusty little perspex boxes. Again no photos…arghhhh however a special group of “shoe tourists” were visiting with permission to photograph, so i did my best to look like a shoe tourist and snapped away…

Carmen Miranda’s platform sandals!

fish skin from the 1940’s – believe it or not!!
