The Art Of Shoes

Almost across the road from the owl mural that I showed you on Monday is the Bata Shoe Museum and during my Open Streets walk along Bloor St I spotted this poster for a current show. This is a travelling retrospective show of Manolo Blahnik shoes spanning 45 years of work and this is the only North American stop. I haven't seen it yet but it has had great reviews and the museum itself is a really interesting place.

A shoe museum! I know a few people who love shoes - they would be very happy there!
For myself, I go for comfort, not for style
Have a great day!

Oh my gosh, that is my kind of museum. I'd love to see that show! I do have one pair of Manolo shoes that I bought at a second hand shop. They are just a pair of plain flats but I love them.

Who knew there was a shoe museum, interesting indeed! That shoe looks very uncomfortable.

I m not really what you might call a "shoe person", but I saw this exhibit and it is indeed fascinating.

Those shoes might appeal to some women. They look like Medieval torture devices to me.

That could be interesting to see.

I haven't been a big fan of stylish shoes since I fell in the middle of a city street wearing my very last pair of platform shoes. I think I'm still embarrassed.
