Shoe Museum

Yes, you guessed it, in the home of Imelda Marcos, who happens to live in the same apartment block as one of my work colleagues, there has to be a shoe museum. Prior to the industrial age Manila was known for its artisan cobblers and one part of the city (where the museum is) is where they all worked their craft. The museum is not that big but the range of shoes is worth the visit. There is even a section dedicated to a part of Imelda's collection with photos of foreign dignitaries and the shoes matching outfits. The ironic thing was that in spite of the local cobblers making such great shoes the majority of Imelda's collection were French or Italian. Personally, I just loved all the 80's rock pairs.
