Shoes are a staple in every person’s wardrobe, but depending on the wearer, they can transform from basic functionality to a unique and compelling fashion accessory that can “make or break” an outfit as a distinct expression of personal style. From vintage and quirky, to edgy and Goth, and sleek and high-end, It’s All About Shoes shows an eclectic mix of what fashion-forward mavens choose to put on their feet each morning to make a statement on the everyday runway of city streets. In an increasingly globalized and homogenized culture, it is these daring individuals, whether devoted followers of fashion or completely devoid of trend, that street style photographer Suzanne Middlemass has captured for their bold, beautiful, strange, yet always interesting choices in footwear that make them truly stand out. It’s All About Shoes presents a variety of exciting and inspiring street style images with a “sole” focus on shoes!
