  • Blue Embellished Shoe Ornament
This miniature collectible shoe ornament expresses the style and panache of actual shoes in The Costume Institute at The Met. Each shoe ornament we produce joins a beloved and long-standing Museum tradition begun in 1997.

The Blue Embellished Shoe Ornament was modelled on a pair of fanciful evening boots made in France in 1957. Their elaborate design features ice-blue silk copiously adorned with radiant blossoms made of cotton netting, plastic sequins, and glass beads, creating a thoroughly feminine yet strikingly original effect.
