Northampton Museum and Art Gallery

Northampton Museum and Art Gallery celebrates the town's industrial heritage with a fabulous collection of shoes. Along with silk slippers, clogs and high heeled nineteenth century court shoes, there's one of the four boots worn by an elephant during the British Expedition of 1959, which retraced Hannibal's route over the Alps into Italy.
 
There's celebrity footwear too, including the giant Doc Martins Elton John wore in Tommy, plus whole cabinets of heavy duty riding boots, pearl inlaid wooden sandals from Ottoman Turkey, and a couple of cabinets showing just how long high heels have been in fashion.
