    I have bought a new house and am looking for beautiful photographs of beautiful shoes (please, no feet/legs). I want to print them off in black and white and create some great art.

    They can be either sandels or pumps, vintage or new, outrageous or modest.... If you have or have seen any photos that may work, could you please post?

    Thanks, your help would be fantastic!!! :flower:

    How about paying a visit to the Bata Shoe Museum's website? I imagine they'd have a ton. :flower:

    Unfortunately the Bata shoe museum website does not have a lot of good quality photos..... Perhaps I need to take a trip to Toronto... mmm.. shopping on bloor street.

    These aren't photographs, but Andy Warhol has quite a few works about shoes that you can purchase posters of:

    The first piece is from his early work as a commercial illustrator, and the second piece is an example of his later fine art.

    I got the pictures from barewalls.com if you're interested.

    Didn't these go for like $660,000 a few years ago? Apparantly the most money ever spent on a pair of shoes... They're beautiful!

    But that's more like it. I'm not really looking for shoe art, I'm just looking for pictures of gorgeous shoes.... Thanks for all your input so far...

    I thought they were in the Smithsonian Museum of American History (or whatever it's called - the one with the President's wives dresses...).

    And don't limit yourself to just photos. There are lots of other shoe related art objects. Check out http://PassionsforFootwear.com There are lots of shoe pics you can convert to B/W, plus 2 galleries of shoe art!
