This is an exhibition after my own heart! It's all about high heels. From 1 February through 11 May at the Kunsthal in Rotterdam, some 500 pairs will be on display. Shoes by renowned designers such as Manolo Blahnik, and by emerging talent as well.

Manolo Blahnik pumps

Remember those blue Manolo Blahnik pumps that Big slips onto Carries feet in the final scene of Sex and the City? You can see them up close at the S.H.O.E.S exhibition. The blue pumps are accompanied by some 500 other gorgeous creations by the greatest designers from 1900 to the present. Take a moment to consider the heels by Roger Vivier, the inventor of the stiletto heel, or the shoes by Christian Louboutin with their famous red soles. There are also footwear gems created by Dutch designers, such as the pumps by Jan Taminiau.

Like you've never seen before

The show includes not only wearable versions of the heel, but also veritable works of art that would be impossible to walk in. The most futuristic creations are on view. How about a pair of bordeaux ballerina flats which, though heelless, nevertheless stand upright, created by André Perugia in 1937. Or black patent leather pumps with huge platform soles by Vivienne Westwood from 1993. Put on your killer heels and run, don't walk, to this outrageous show. Enjoy! Opening hours Tuesday through Saturday: 10 AM- 5 PM Sundays and holidays: 11 AM-5 PM
