Why You Should Visit Toronto's Bata Shoe Museum

7.05.2012


You mean the beautiful creation of a glittering bird slipper above is not enough of a reason? How about design, history, fashion and travel all rolled into one neat little package called the Bata Shoe Museum. Located in the upscale neighborhood of Yorkville, this enlightening museum (yes enlightening, you learn a lot here!) is DEFINITELY a main highlight in Toronto, if not THE highlight. (Along with a trip to the ever so beautifully designed and equally tasty MoRoCo chocolate shop a few blocks away.) With around 12,500 artifacts and shoes on rotating display, this is undoubtedly a girl's highway to heaven. 

Can't make it in person? Check out the next best thing which will take you to all 4 corners of the world.

great photos. there's a small district just outside lahore called Batapur. It's where they have all the Bata shoe stores and where the factory workers used to live...
