best bye y this is partly because most of those books are drawing primarily on North American collections for the majority of their images, while this book's author, Rebecca Shawcross, is attached to the Northampton Museum's footwear collection from which she can draw for even more images outside the most commonly circulated images/pairs.This book is beautifully put together and enormously readable/browsable--a great balance of full color images, historical illustrations & engravings, and meaningful yet not dense text. It could be a reference book in your workroom's library (as it will be for me), but it could just as easily be a coffee table book in your home. You could read it cover to cover and learn about shoes from 3500 BCE to the present, or you could dip in and out of it by era or subject. Shawcross gives e Zurich se them again. The only thing I would say is she hasn't a great deal of growing room in them. I got these last year for my daughter for school because i always wore sketchers and they lasted forever, so my thinking was ill try them for her as she scuffs the fronts of hers so quick, so new term, new shoes and would go for these over any others. Perfect for kids. Its a small size - if you are medium or large frame then this will not fit What good is a shoe if it doesn't stay on your feet. Especially with kids who do a lot of running around. The velcro strap has wasted away and no longer sticks, this after a month and a half. I wish I had payed a bit more and got her the hush puppies which i bought for her. lasted her for a whole year (no Joke!) they are gorgeous and fit nicely in her feet, my daughter says they are comfy and very stylish shes very happy with them These shoes are brilliant. They are sturdy, comfy, tough, and basically indestructible. They do not get scuffed, or scratched, even after a month of 5 day a week wear. Amazingly, they costs less than flimsy shoes from Clarks or Start Rite, cheap kitesurfing equipment a young composer. Later, with three weeks to create a ballet, he has Craster compose the music to the story of The Red Shoes. Victoria Page will dance it. It is a triumph, but Page leaves the Ballet Lermontov to marry Craster. Lermontov is outraged and swears he'll never see her again. She needs to dance, though, and Lermontov slowly realizes he wants her back, completely dedicated to dancing, because he can make her a great dancer. He subtly woos her back to dance the ballet again, with tr Babyliss UK ard, sharp edge that digs into the top of my big toe. After dropping ￡30+ on these two weeks ago, I can't walk in these without extreme pain so I've replaced them.I guess that's what I get when buying shoes online without trying them on before, but I've never had any shoe issues except for both pairs of this design which have left my feet cut and bleeding. colour and fit were both fine,but these started breaking after 5 weeks of not even daily wear.I got these as a birthday gift for my boyfriend and they are now in tatters.He has many other brands of footwear he has owned for a long time,yet he has had 3 pairs of Vans that have all broken.This cant be a coinsidence.I will never buy him another pair.At first I thought he was hard on shoes but every other brand has lasted great.This is the only pair I,ve purchased from Amazon,the other 2 pairs I bought shopping in town (last year) and the other at a designer outlet.Shame on you Vans!! your products are not cheap and they all fall apart.Before I got these I also got him a pair of cheap van lookalikes from Burtons which cost ￡9.99 an.
best isa rates g squeezed. After a generous spray with this product I can were them all in comfort. Recommend!
My shoes were much looser after I used this spray, but I used it on my ugg boots and it didn't work on them perhaps it may need more than one application,
The stretcher is good. It make leather more gentle and almost perfectly eliminates the discomfort of new shoes. However if the size is seriously smaller than it is supposed to be, it does not solve the problem.
These are a great multi purpose shoe - smart enough for the office or business use, but not so formal that they can't be used for casual wear too.They are wide-fitting, quite generously sized, and have the 'Air' cushion soles all of which adds up to a really comfortable shoe, straight out of the box.They are made of good quality the box and walked to her house quicker than their delivery for which they charged me ￡3.99p.
I bought these boots and loved them when they came. It took a few weeks but was glad I bought then they look really good on would recomend them bargain for 21 pounds
Brilliant, just what I wanted and so so comfortable. Long delivery date but was aware of this when I ordered. Packaging a bit beaten but product in perfect condition.
the box was damaged and the boots were skuffed at the toes wife said they would do but i disagree
The product was for my daughter, but we ordered a size 6 for her which is her shoe size, but they are a small size 6, so i had to send them back and requested a size 7. The boots came quickly www.dotank.co.uk oderately small - I was not referring to the size. I bought size 7 and they fit me exactly as they should, it is only the toe fit that I have a problem with. This is my foot problem and not a problem with the shoe.
I am a size 5 but I got the 5.5 as I read they were a small fit, I think I could have been ok with the size 5 though, I don't really mind as I like to wear two pairs of socks anyway for extra cushioning and they are quite hard, which I don't mind either because the support is much better that way,and they are not that much bigger that I'm tripping up or my feet look huge or anything, and they do soften up once your running about a bit, I feel much more confident playing tennis now as there is no slipping on court at all in these, I think they are very good quality and the lateral support is excellent.
Previous trainers (New Balance) at 6.5 size fitted well. This is a tight fit and I would have ordered 7.0 if I had known sizes were on the mean side.
Ordered half size bigger than normal 5.5 but they seemed very large. I ha www.dotank.co.uk ons
Great ballet shoes for such a good price. I have wide feet and these fit beautifully. Would highly recommend these.
These shoes can sometimes fit a little small, so I ordered to 12 as my daughter is really an 11. They fit fine and have a bit of growing room too. Perfect. Hopefully she'll get a full years use out of them. Good service and excellent price. Also very prompt reply to my email enquiry. Many thanks
Fits well and very strong. I like it also as she can glide in it easily.I also like the colour.
my daughter loves it. it fits .
hindi meaning in english language e still really big. I'm a slim fitting foot (C) so I'm used to shoes being too wide for me. I gave them to my mum who has feet swollen from arthritis. She says they are super comfortable and loves them. These seem to be a cheaper version of the Skechers go walk shoes. I have both and these this particular shoe is wider than Sketchers and a little bit heavier, but not much. Material is also a little bit harder than the Sketchers version ...but that is not a criticism just an observation. They are extremely comfortable and I wish they came in a slimmer width fitting because I would definitely buy some for myself. I can only recommend based on my own experience, and I wasen difficult for the past 3 years,to find anything remotely comfortable,but I still try.Anyway,I bought these DEK before the High Street pair,that have been,wait for it> surpisingly comfortable.When the DEK pair arrived today I was disappointed straight away.Not with the size,but the comfort.I find the sides are very high,stiff and unyielding (although that could soften given time)so I am going to plod on and keep them and try to get used to them come what may.I asked my husband to weigh them against the High street purchase,and he found little difference which surprised me.I have a horrible fluey cold at the moment,so I cannot be too accurate in judgement now.However,once this flu and the hateful cold weather have ended,I may feel better about the trainers in general,I will wear them around the house and garden in the meantime.I will revise and edit this this review once I feel things are looking up in the foot department!!
Ok if they'd done half sizes I'd have been a 51/2, but that's what thick socks are for. But they are so comfortable round my foot I'd forgive that. I Babyliss curl secret ious Crocs products already, well made, lightweight and very comfy. Add to this the usual great efficient servuce from Amazon and at this price, you just have to snap them up!
very comfortable and waterproof. Only gripe and its nowt to do with these is they don't come up my shin far enough. When I can afford will go for a set with more (higher) shin protection and keeps these for summer commuting
Great sizing, warm and comfortable, easy to get on and off,Feet got a little wet when riding in heavy rain for a whole day but that'a my fault for being out there in the first place. Perfect buy for a first time rider
no no pro uk at first. However after a couple of days they have moulded to my feet and are fine. They look good and are a bargain!
There was a very quick delivery.It has accommodated all my shoesHowever i would say that the structure is a little flimsy and cannot stand by it selfMine is leaning against the wall
although it does the purpose for what i need it for i was really disappointed it wasnt a bit more sturdier. for instance it doesnt stay steady on a carpeted area, and it has to be placed up against a wall or it would topple it is so lightweight, plus you have.
