In conjunction with the exhibition Head to Toe

The Museum at FIT’s 26th fashion symposium Stilettos to Sneakers: A Virtual Shoe Symposium brings together scholars and curators and their new research on the social and cultural significance of shoes. Shoes have played an important role in human society for millennia, but interest in them has grown exponentially in the past few decades with Americans—especially women—buying more shoes. A growing cohort of men have begun collecting sneakers. This symposium explores the evolving significance of shoes over the centuries—in real life and in the cultural imagination. In this way, we hope to show the many ways in which shoes matter to us.
