Footprint - MoMu Antwerp
The exhibition FOOTPRINT takes you on a journey through the history of shoes in fashion and highlights the innovative and bold approach of shoe designs and investigates their cultural impact. Displayed shoes are by designers who have left their marks in fashion history.
The exhibition shows both the Hollywood glamour of Salvatore Ferragamo, the ‘shoemaker of dreams’ for Marilyn Monroe, as well as sneakers by Raf Simons and the rebellious boots by Vivienne Westwood, Walter Van Beirendonck and others.
