Curated by graduate students, it’s the museum’s first exhibit to focus exclusively on women’s boots, highlighting holdings from its extensive footwear collection and 20 pairs of women’s boots by some of the most innovative and sought-after designers, such as early 20th century designer Paul Poiret and contemporary favorites Christian Louboutin, Marc Jacobs and Manolo Blahnik.

The exhibit is divided into three sections entitled “Sex,” “Rebellion” and “Status,” with each section showcasing boots which convey each theme.
