Love this Quote and Fashion History reference

“If you and I were 16th-century prostitutes wading through the Venetian filth, I could see a point to us balancing precariously on two blocks of wood.” –Lisa Armstrong wonders how clogs sneaked back into fashion.

Lisa is refering to chopines- shoes worn during that century.
Extant chopines at the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
