Liz Noftle, AMD ’10 helps tell the story of “The Shoes We Wore”

“We will finish the race.”

That’s the simple but resilient statement framed by dozens of running shoes forming the shape of a heart on the cover of Boston Magazine’s May cover. Design director Brian Struble and deputy design director Liz Noftle (CAMD Art + Design alumni, BFA in Studio Art) came up with the idea on April 15, the night after the Boston Marathon bombing shook the city — and nation — just a few blocks away from the magazine’s offices near Copley Square. Anderson Cooper from CNN interviewed John Wolfson, Editor of Boston Magazine, while Liz Noftle described the beginnings of “The Shoes We Wore” project  in the CNN Living article.


The Shoes We Wore” at Boston Magazine continues to accept runner’s stories.
