Art & Sole: A Shoe-Lovers Fantasy

Where art, footwear and fantasy intersect comes Art & Sole by Jane Gershon Weitzman, wife of iconic shoe designer Stuart Weitzman.

When the first Stuart Weitzman boutique opened its doors in the mid-1990s on Madison Avenue, its magical window displays of specially commissioned fantasy art shoes became a world-renowned destination. Weitzman opens up the captivating window displays in book form to showcase the best of their carefully curated collection.


Art & Sole reveals in vivid detail the collection of inventive and beautifully crafted creations that will wow any shoe lover, fashionista or art aficionado. Featuring over 100 shoes made from unique materials including feathers, watercolour paper, playing cards, fresh flowers, Swarovski crystals and much more, Art & Sole is a graphically compelling experience.

Beginning with an introduction by Jane Weitzman, the shoes are featured alongside brief captions that provide interesting background and historical context.


With the holiday season approaching, Art & Sole would make a fabulous gift for friends, family and co-workers alike. Embossed with a bright red cloth case and an elaborate crystal shoe, the eye-catching front cover is an instant conversation starter. The gold edging and satin ribbon impart Art & Sole an air of opulence, making for a luxurious and vibrant addition to anyone’s coffee table.

Truly timeless and incredibly imaginative, Art & Sole will mesmerize readers with each turn of the page.
