Footnotes: Shoes with Stories to Tell
From XtraTufs to ice skates to sealskin boots, this exhibition showcases life in Alaska from the ground up. Each pair of footwear serves as a launching point for a story unique to Alaska’s history. Discover how one Mrs. Alaska paid homage to her state with custom-made high-heeled Xtratufs and how the military adopted shoe technology from Alaska Native designs. Highlights include the sneaker Binky the polar bear snatched from an Alaska Zoo visitor in 1994.
