Shoes Glorious Shoes - Shoes: Pleasure and Pain at the V&A

So many people have spoken about shoes more knowledgeably and articulately than I so I shall use their words to take you through some of the highlights of this lovely exhibition at the V&A

Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world Marilyn Monroe

If high heels were so wonderful, men would be wearing them Sue Grafton ......... (I think you will find they are)

If a chick wants to know who makes my shoes she's got to take them off and look inside ASAP Rocky

One thing I detest, I have to say, is when a shoe is too soft and its molding to the foot. This is quite disgusting. And I really really hate incredibly long shoes, where the last is very pointy, almost like Aladdin. Christian Louboutin (Not Sure how he would feel about these ones)

I like Cinderella, I really do. She has a good work ethic. And she likes shoes. The fairytale is all about the shoe at the end. Amy Adams

I spend most of my time wearing uncomfortable things, so for me, it's all about trainers. Cara Delevinge (I think she would approve of Robert's adidas collection in the exhibition)

Craziness in a shoe is great - you can have much more freedom, you can exaggerate it and it doesn't feel stupid. But to have too much craziness near your face, that would just feel weird. Miuccia Prada

I'm not afraid of heights have you seen my shoes Carrie Bradshaw
