This past Friday, the Museum at FIT opened an exhibition that could resemble some women’s closets. “Shoe Obsession” explores the incredible impact that shoes have had in design and culture, with over 150 shoes from both classic designers and some up-and-coming. Co-curator Valerie Steele stated that “The average American woman has almost two times as many shoes as she did 10 years ago, and the heels of shoes have almost doubled in height as well.” Examining the shoe as a work of art and sculpture, the show runs from February 8 – April 13.
