New shoes is good news

What do you get if you cross

Camper shoes with Acupuncture trainers? Something along the lines of this, a lovely - and painfully hip -

collection of casual boots and

shoes from the Spanish company

Art Creative Footwear. With growing reputation and


increasingly wide availability in

Scotland, Art shoes look set to be a

favourite on Glasgow and

Edinburgh dancefloors in the

summer of 2004.

The shoes are available in a wide variety of styles, from sporty boots and faux fur shoes to slip-on mules and open-toed sandals - many of which come in a choice of quirky colours to provide a welcome alternative to boring old trainers.

Art also manages to stand out from the crowd thanks to the use of durable rubber out-soles, which come in a range of heights from low profile to platform.

And the good news is that The List has got three pairs of Art shoes - two in size 7 and the other in

size 10 - to give away.

So if you fancy trying out any of these shoes, and they happen to fit your plates of meat, just write in with your details (stating your shoe size) and we’ll pick three lucky winners out of the hat.

I AHl-ll-ll-l,

architects. They spend so many years concentrating on one long, tiresome building project that if you dangle something ephemeral in their faces - a little pavilion, an exhibition, or perhaps a book project - they’re sure to jump at the chance. Even if they’re Rem Koolhaas, just about the most famous architect in the world. Now, following his best-selling book S,M,L,XL, Koolhaas has turned his hand to magazines. If our feature on Scotland’s fanzines (see p22) has got your juices flowing, and you fancy getting a fix of some thought- provoking and subversive ideas through the magazine medium, you could do worse than to buy a copy of Koolhaas’ zine, named Content, which costs £6.99 and includes among other things, an interview with Martha Stewart and, er, a potted history of African communist radio. It’s available from or

I ANOTHER ARCHITECT who will soon be the toast of Scottish shoppers is Toyo Ito. He's the Japanese wonder-kid commissioned to design a new £90m store for Selfridge's in Glasgow. Last year the design-led department store opened a bold new outlet in Birmingham. and then shortly afterwards was acquired by Wittington Investments. whose chairman Galen Weston promptly put most of the company's expansion plans on hold. But not Glasgow: rumour has it that Ito. working with his favourite engineer Cecil
