Sneaker Freaker

I've been focusing on sneakers lately, the culture, the looks, the style, collecting. etc. All in aid of our latest, and last of the semester, brief. I've been trying to work out an aesthetic for my exhibition poster and banners.
Here's the resulting work so far.

Heels and Ribbons

During my week researching shoes, I found 17th Century Men's shoes quite interesting. Why were men wearing high heels, and why were they decorated like women's shoes?
Early in this period, heeled boots were the fashion, but after the French King Louis XIV, men started desiring shapely legs. (as clearly shown in his portrait)

Here's a link to an informative website.
