"Beth Levine Shoes" is a showcase of gorgeous, full-colour photographs of Beth Levine's ground breaking shoe design and the story of this pioneering woman who went from Long Island farm girl to shoemaker for stars such as Nancy Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, and Barbra Streisand. Although she was a truly visionary designer, Levine's shoes were sold under her husband's name because female shoe designers were unheard of in her time.

This book will give her the credit she deserves for her fashion-forward work, including introducing mules, stilettos, and fashion boots to the American market. Her work is featured in museums around the world. Her designs are still setting trends today and in photographs look as fresh now as when they were first produced.

The book features more than 60 full-page photographs of Levine's shoes - sexy, sensual, and playful - accompanied by quotes, a biography of Levine and archival material.
