The Minnesota Historical Society preserves and makes available a wide range of materials chronicling Minnesota's history and culture. The goals of the Collections Department are to collect and preserve; provide access and interpretation; and engage in education and outreach.

Comfortable Shoe Year
While thinking about the upcoming new year, we came across this in the collection.
This button promotes the "National Comfortable Shoes Year" of 1988, with an image of a high-heeled shoe crossed out. There is another button in our collection with the same image, but promoting "National Comfortable Shoes Week" in 1987. These were worn in Saint Paul. Anyone recognize them or this movement?
