In 1952 a young Italian shoemaker named Paolo DeLuca fell in love with the daughter of a widow and hand-crafted for her a gift: a pair of high heels. The girl would not wear the scandalous shoes.

And then, the shoes were lost.

Hollywood icons and waitresses, rock stars and architects, thrift shop owners and prostitutes all walk a mile in these shoes over the next half-century as Paolo tries to track them down. We’ll strut across the silver screen with a Blonde Bombshell who became a legend in the shoes. We’ll risk it all with a wife who decides that fantasy and reality lie too far apart. We’ll be a fly on the wall as the shoes guest-star on one of the biggest hits of the MTV era, among the other lives the shoes touch between their creation on DeLuca’s workbench to their final resting place.

The Shoemaker’s Pursuit is a collection of eleven interconnected tales following the path of the most famous pair of shoes ever made. Let’s take a walk on the wild side.
