New Exhibit Showcases Correlation Between Pain & Shoe Fashion

June 16, 2015

When you are getting dressed for a dinner party or other formal event, out of all the uncomfortable clothes out there, there is the one piece of the outfit that will bug you the most: the shoes. For guys, many fancy formal shoes are inflexible when walking and can pinch at the toe. For the ladies, high heels can create an evening of balancing and stressing on the ankles. This isn’t a modern practice. Wearing uncomfortable footwear as fashion has been around for centuries.

The V&A in England is currently having an art exhibit focused on this very topic. You can see dazzling yet painful shoes that Chinese women were expected to wear with bound feet. Among so many other shoes throughout human history, you can even see decorative men’s slippers from the Silk Road in first century B.C. So while we still have a long way to go in terms of creating shoes that are fashionable AND healthy for the feet, you’ll be able to see how much we’ve improved.
