Sure, on face value, 'shoes' and 'movies' don't exactly go together. But can you imagine The Wizard of Oz without Dorothy's red sequinned pumps? Or Forrest Gump without his Nikes?
Or, Kill Bill without those iconic yellow sneakers, adorned with the embossed blink-and-you'll-miss-it 'Fuck You' on the sole? Besides, don't even get us started on a Sex And The City movie without Carrie's iconic crystal-adorned Manolo Blahniks.
The truth is, the history of cinema is riddled with iconic shoe moments—and seeing as we love footwear and great films in equal measure, we want to celebrate them.
