Peek into history's shoe closet with this passionate look at the most important footwear in recent times. In the modern world shoes don't just keep your feet warm and dry-they often communicate a message about the wearer. Join the Design Museum for a look at the fifty iconic shoes of the last 150 years, beginning with Frye Boot in 1863. Learn how a doctor's ankle injury launched a boot (Dr. Martens) that became the symbol of a generation's defiance and how an immigrant Italian plucked the name Tod's out of the New York telephone directory to define the driving shoe that perfectly encapsulates the American dream.
