A new exhibition opens this weekend at the Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle, charting the social and artistic aspects of footwear over the centuries.
The exhibition comes from the Victoria and Albert Musuem in London and is the only venue outside the capital, before the items are taken to the USA and China.
It charts two thousand years of footwear, from a pair used for foot binding in China, to a modern trainer selection.

Last year's Durham Lumiere Light Festival brought almost ten million pounds to the local economy - nearly four million more than in 2013 - according to an independent report.
Two hundred thousand visitors from around the world turned out last November to see art installations, including the Whale in the Wear and the history of the universe projected onto the Cathedral. Next week county councillors will be asked to spend
600 thousand pounds to bring Lumiere back for a fifth time in 2017.
