Is a shoe a work of art? Is a shoe that cannot be walked in still a “shoe”? Through more than 60 extraordinary examples, all created by the distinguished alumni and students of Israel prestigious academy – Bezalel, the book “A Walk Of Art” treads the line between art and fashion. Thanks to their iconic shape, loaded history, and symbolism, shoes have become the ideal objects through which to evaluate these questions, to break the perceived boundaries of design and to transform shoes into objects of significance in their own right. The book includes an academic curatorial essay on the history of extreme shoes, and explores the relationship between the art and fashion worlds through shoes.
