Italian art director and multimedia designer Federico Mauro’s Famous Shoes series captures the foot attire of celebrities and television and movie characters through minimalist posters.
Mauro includes some obvious choices in his series like Dorothy Gale’s sparkly red pumps in the Wizard of Oz, Cinderella’s glass slippers and Beatrix Kiddo’s black and yellow Asics Onitsuka Tiger tennis shoes from Kill Bill. In many ways, these characters were defined and remembered by the shoes they wore.
Musicians like Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga also received spotlights in the series. Tech-celebrities like Mark Zuckerberg and his Adidas sandals, along with Steve Jobs’ New Balance sneakers are symbolized in the series as well.
This is the second minimalist poster series from Mauro. His Famous Eyeglasses series was an Internet hit and followed the same concept, only with a different accessory.
