In this the second part of the best-selling edition on the legend of the heel, we look at the history of the foot/heel fetishism in history and drop in to meet some of the more famous foot/shoe fetishists ever. We profile all the various types of designer heels by their classification. We explore the craft secrets of what makes a well-made heel and learn how to spot a well-made shoe.


As Dita Von Teese one said famously;


“Heels and red lipstick put the fear of God into people”


Shoes are much more than mere fashion accessories. On the one hand, they are the most sensible elements of any wardrobe. They protect our naked feet from harsh environments and stony grounds. They stabilise our gait and protect our delicate ankles, knees and hips. They elevate our minds and our behinds, and in the case of high heels, they accentuate the butt, arch the back and make us into feline goddesses of unlimited sexual power. No other fashion item has ever offered us so much.
