Beverly Feldman opens the door to her private Shoe Museum

Beverly Feldman, the footwear industry's leading female designer has opened her private shoe museum at her design studio in the south of Spain.

At the start of her career in the 1960's, Beverly began buying and safeguarding the best examples of the most important labels and significant historic examples, creating a 200 year iconography of the shoe industry and making her the self-proclaimed 'unofficial historian of the 20th century footwear industry.'

"I have a very special feeling for vintage shoes and the women who wore them and the adventures they had in them. They tell silent stories.

Those women had some great times over the last 120 years, flirting, dancing, laughing, and making love in all of these shoes that I have saved," said Beverly Feldman.

The museum focuses on highly embellished footwear, boasting both vintage and new examples, including Native American, Indian, African, French, late 19th century Chinese beaded and embroidered shoes, and a pair of exceptionally rare Western style Chinese shoes made for bound feet, which measure a mere 4".

The museum also includes a Beverly Feldman wing with highlights from her 40 year career. Samples from Beverly's museum may be found in the Dutch Leather and Shoe Museum in Waalwijk, Netherlands, and Shoe Icons; Virtual Shoe Museum in Moscow, Russia.
