Nine West Womens Voodoo Leather

Nine West Womens Voodoo Leather

"Women From the Ankle Down" is a biography of The Shoe that hits all the high points, beginning in 1900 and ending with the present-day obsession with those Manolos, Ferragamos, and those red-soled Louboutins. Throughout, a certain famous pair of Shoes, the Ruby Slippers pop up and click their heels together.

Bergstein knows about them all, the wedges, the stilettos, go-go boots, Doc Martens, Reebok, Nike, and Adidas, Berkenstocks. Reading this book was a fun trip through the 20th Century from the vantage point of shoes. I learned what that bizarre fashion combo from the '80s was all about- when women everywhere wore their white hi-tops with their power suits- it had a very practical beginning. I learned all about how those Ruby Slippers came to be, and about the shoemakers who were Manolo, Ferragamo, and Louboutin, as well as some other big-name shoemakers who've risen up in the last century.

Shoes are a kind of shorthand, and they carry with them a kind of power all their own. In reading this fun book, now I "get it" better. Like the shoes she writes about, Rachelle Bergstein and her book are just fabulous!

  1. I wanted something I could wear all summer that wasn't a flip-flop and these will work great. They seem like they'd be great for shorts AND dresses. Very comfortable and love all the color choices these come in. The leather is of a great quality too.

  2. I don't normally order shoes as I have to first try it on for the fit, but when I saw these, I decided to order and if it did not fit, I would return it. I now want to order all the colors as It fitted me perfectly.

    Love these shoes! Stylish and comfortable. Wedge heel gives the right amount of lift. These wedges remind me of the gladiator sandals that were popular a few years ago. My feet have been giving me problems so I made the decision to wear lower heels. Its not easy finding a low heel that is comfortable and sexy- but these wedges offer both. Can be worn with pants, skirts, or even capris. Perfection!
