While I was in Toronto I made the pilgrimage to the Bata Show Museum . I've always wanted to go but everytime I've been in Toronto something has gotten in my way.
If you love shoes this is definitely a place you should check out. On the lower floor there's a huge timeline of shoes from prehistoric times to today with real shoe examples from every time period from all over the world. It's fascinating!
Upstairs is a so-so display of shoes of famous Canadians. The kids that were there seemed pretty excited about Avril Lavigne's running shoes but it didn't really thrill me.
Then I went upstairs and found something that did thrill me! A whole room full of shoes from the 1920's. So beautiful and so inspiring!
Can you imagine if these were just your everyday shoes???
I love the sequins on this pair. I think this could easily be done to a pair of shoes of today with just a little sparkle and some glue.
