Stepping Out provides a stunning insight into the world of shoes. It traces the changes that have occurred both in manufacturing and design techniques, as well as considering the changing styles and fashions.

This fascinating book, now available in a new edition, looks at the development of the shoe from the early 1700s. Virtually every conceivable style of footwear is examined and put into context in this book. From the beautifully crafted shoes of brocaded silk and embroidered linen of the early eighteenth century to the wacky and futuristic designs of the late twentieth century, this book has them all, including for the first time examples of 'exotic foreign' shoes from the Joseph Box shoe collection which were not seen in the first edition.
