For the shoe lover in your life

Books_smaller Mugs_smaller

The BSM Museum Shop is stocked with many sensational shoe-related items. To find books about shoes, an object in the shape of a shoe—or anything decorated with shoe images—visit our shop when you visit the Museum. There’s always something new coming in so our selection changes, but it often includes books for adults and children, ornaments, gifts, paper goods, key rings and jewellery, and more!

Opening hours for the shop are the same as those for the Museum.

Many of the BSM’s books are now available for purchase on the BSM’s Amazon shop.  Here are a sample of some of our recent publications:

$45 -Signed by author.
Based on the BSM’s groundbreaking traveling exhibition, Out of the Box showcases sneakers, from the mid-nineteenth century to sports performance breakthroughs, to present-day cultural icons. Drawn from the collection of the Bata Shoe Museum and significant private collectors, museums, and archives—including adidas AG, Converse Archives, Kosow Sneaker Museum, Nike Archives, Northampton Museums and Art Gallery, and Reebok Archives—this selection is richly contextualized with interviews and essays by design innovators, sneaker collectors, and cultural historians, creating a backdrop of the technical innovation, fashion trends, social history, and marketing campaigns that shaped the form over the past two centuries.
