Manolos, Jimmy Choos, Louboutins, oh my. Shoes, a new song and dance revue that premieres in London tonight, explores our most beloved obsession with wit and irreverence.
The show, which was written and composed by Richard Thomas (of Jerry Springer: The Opera fame) and is directed by famed choreographer Stephen Mear, stars a cast of the West End's best dancers and 250 pairs of shoes – from our aforementioned faves to the less salubrious Croc and Birkenstock varieties.
With musical numbers such as Foot Fetish, which features Christian Louboutin's red-soled delectables, and Ferragamo, which saw the Italian design house remaking shoes from its archives specifically for the production, no self-respecting footwear connoisseur should miss it.
Shoes is on at the Sadler's Well's from the 3–11 September. The revue will also be embarking on an international tour in the Spring.
