"The Costume Institute collection includes an example of Beth's minimalist, "topless" shoe, consisting only of an arched sole of a shoes attached to a narrow high heel. Beth intended that it be worn by means of adhesive pads joining the shoe to the foot. The black silk edge of the sole outlining the foot and the stem like heel are barely visible. Essentially the effect is of a bared, tiptoeing foot: nature supported by artifice. Like much of Beth's work, it embodies elegance achieved through material mastery, aesthetic virtuosity, and ironic with: pure Herbert Levine, a pure Beth."
