Stepping Out: Shoes from the collection of Museum & Galleries Edinburgh

Our shoes tell stories. They tell of days in the fields and nights on the dancefloor; of hard work and leisure; of thrift and extravagance. This small exhibition explores shoes worn by brewers and babies, servicewomen and music fans, members of high society and everyday people, from the mid-19th century to the 1980s.
