Karn Knutson's New Sole-Searching Field Guide: Shoe-ology

Share Article

In this beautifully illustrated and devilishly satrical book, a bona fide shoe-ologist reveals just how much your shoes are saying.


From the shamelessly sensible

to the wickedly pointed

Karn Knutson

(PRWEB) June 18, 2006 -- “Shoes are equal opportunity fashion. Even if your dress size fluctuates or you’ve never actually seen the inside of a size six skirt in your life, your feet don’t require starvation, protein binging or hours in the gym to slip into the same sexy sandals as the supermodels. Every woman can stand there, hands on hips, checking out her new boots in the mirror and say to herself ‘Damn, in these I can be a total diva.” ~Karn Knutson

Karn Knutson, with sass and wit, tells it like it is when it comes to your shoes and what they say about you in Shoe-ology (Conari Press, July 2006). And, her beautiful illustrations will knock you off your Manolo Blahniks…or, maybe you favor Birkenstocks?

What do your shoes say about you? Knutson knows! She is a bona fide shoe-ologist who’s been observing people and their shoes since grammar school. Plus, all of her friends are unapologetic shoe junkies who never cease to amuse her with their abundance of shoe rationale – “oh, but they’re the newest,” “the coolest,” “I don’t care if they cost more than my student loans, they’re adorable!”

Whether it’s your heels, boots, flats, or gym shoes, every pair is a statement about you. Shoe-ology will satisfy your curiosity about what each of these shoes say about you and why. It is the perfect book to laugh over with your shoe-obsessed mates and it’s also a really nice way of letting someone know if their taste in shoes is slightly lacking.

Shoe-ology is a book you’ll want to buy in pairs for yourself and your girlfriends.
