Arming the reader with essential facts, citing medical literature as well as leading podiatric surgeons and orthopedists, Tanenbaum covers the history of high heels, Chinese foot binding, the controversy over cosmetic surgery of the foot, and what Freud had to say about women's shoes and sex.
Illustrated by artist Vanessa Davis throughout, Bad Shoes & the Women Who Love Them also includes hilarious anecdotes from women who love shoes. And yes — it is possible to make smart footwear decisions without sacrificing style! Tanenbaum shows you how.
