    One thought on “Footwear = La Calzatura”

    1. A nice little book, well balanced, possibly because it is European. It has a few ancient shoes, Byzantine, and then is solidly in the Renaissance. Unlike some shoe histories, it is not imbalanced by an overemphasis on recent shoes. Clear photos, almost all in color.
