Celebrity Shoes on Display in Louisville
Oprah Winfrey once explained this way her outlook on life after rising from a difficult childhood to a status of wealth and influence: "Though I am grateful for the blessings of wealth, it hasn't changed who I am," she said in her magazine. "My feet are still on the ground. I'm just wearing better shoes." Which brings the (maybe not obvious) question: What do those shoes look like? Louisville has something of an answer. The Muhammad Ali Center is exhibiting about a dozen pairs of shoes from famous and significant people; the Right Foot exhibit an addition to the traveling Global Shoes project of shoes worn by people from around the world meant to spotlight cultures through footwear.
