Calling all shoe lovers! The Bata Shoe Mueseum in Toronto is a must see location. I heard about them through a tweet from my favorite Canadian songstress, Lights. Recently, they’ve been expanding their shoe collection by asking Canadian musiciains to donate a piece of footwear. Other things you may find at the Bata include:
The Historic collection ranges from the Renaissance period to the Victorian age. One can find shoes from all over the world in this one location.
Shoes of the Stars:
A growing collection, Bata has gathered the footwear from iconic stars to display for fans.

Shoes of Art:
Shoes of Art are inspired by current events, pop culture, shape and color.
