The exhibition FOOTPRINT in the MoMu took spectators on a journey through the history of shoes in fashion, and promised to be a true revelation for both shoe lovers and fashion freaks. Running the gamut from the otherworldly contemporary designs by Iris Van Herpen and Noritaka Tatehana to 19th century carved wooden clogs: this show highlighted the innovative and bold approach of these designs and investigates their cultural impact. This exhibition displayed the MoMu shoe collection, a long-term loan from collectors Geert Bruloot and Eddy Michiels, supplemented with over 400 unique items from the archives of designers, collectors and international museums.
In this video curator ánd shoe collector Geert Bruloot speaks about the Boot in Felt from AF Vandevorst. Watch here for the other iconic shoes in the exhibition.
