Women are defined by their accessories. And what does it say about us that our most “fashionable” shoes are torture devices? I began making shoes out of frustration with the fashion industry. But one shoe lead to another. I became acutely aware of the prominent status of shoes in our culture. They permeate our fairy tales and myths. They are icons of sexuality, power, wealth, dependence & salvation. They’re great fodder for social commentary.
