Shoes that have been worn often retain a very distinctive imprint of the wearer. From straights and flats to stiletto heels, we will take a look at how boots and shoes were made, sold and advertised in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, discover some intriguing stories about shoes and their owners, and have a chance to examine footwear from the collections up close. Find out how to identify materials and date fashionable shoes in this afternoon workshop.
