The Shoe Museum

Hello everyone! I know, I know!!! I haven't updated for a long time. I was home in the Philippines for two weeks. Anyway I found, well it was actually my husband who found this very interesting tourist spot that shoe-lovers will truly adore. We were researching for the things to do when in Manila and we found this Shoe Musuem in Marikina (Shoe capital of the Philippines) that showcases some Imelda Marcos' shoes. And for only Php 50 (1.20USD) you'll be able to see 800 pairs of her 3,000 shoe collection during the 1980's.
Imelda Marcos is the former First lady of the Philippines and the wife of Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos. Imelda is quite known for her massive shoe collection that it has become a pop culture icon.

The Museum is located at
J.P. Rizal St.
Barangay San Roque
Marikina City

Opening Hours at
8:00AM- 5:00PM
Lunchbreak 12NN to 1PM
Monday to Sunday

Visit their website Marikina Shoe Museum for more information.
