Cinematic costume design plays a huge role in both television, film, theater and video games. Every detail is crafted to perfection to help tell the story and develop the character. One way a character can be developed is through their choice of footwear. The team at Journeys did a deep dive into some of the most iconic footwear in the history of TV, film and video games to create this fabulous visualization. Going down the list a few questions that come to mind; Where would Carrie Bradshaw be without her iconic Manolo Blahnik's? Where would Dorothy be if she never clicked together her ruby red slippers? Shoes can play a huge part in cinematic plot lines.
Sneakers from the film The Sandlot became one of the most important shoes to ever be featured in a film. If Benny Rodriguez never slipped on his PF Flyers, the movie could have ended a lot differently for all of them. Video game fashion has also given cosplayers a fun challenge. Some have created incredible working reproductions of wildly out-there video game shoes and attire, can anyone build me Wonder Woman's boots, size 8 please?
