Organized by theme—sex, rebellion, status—the show highlights stylish footwear such as Paul Poiret’s lambskin boots from 1918 rumored to “stop traffic in Paris” as his wife strutted around town. Twenty pairs, beginning with Jack Jacobus’s progressive “walking boots” from 1900, chronicle this fashion trend's development over the last century, featuring designers such as Christian Louboutin, Yves Saint Laurent and Manolo Blahnik.
