Art Shoes

Twenty years ago, Veerle Swenters and Pierre Bogaerts started writing what would be over 1,000 letters to artists, requesting – their shoes. After hours and hours and hours of toiling and begging, these Dutch shoe collectors amassed quite a collection (of specatular espadrilles - and other great togs). Check it – and others of ethnic footwear and designers own shoes – on Shoes or No Shoes.  Above: Peter Collien, Germany. (Many thanks to reader David Williams for the heads up! So cool!)
