Video: The Bata Shoe Museum, Toronto
If you find yourself in Toronto, put the Bata Shoe Museum on to your must-visit list. This museum has quite a few stories to tell about footwear, from what it was like to be a knight going into battle and donning long pointed Sabatons, and how much you can learn about trade patterns in native North America through intricately crafted beaded moccasins, there is something for everyone. With over 1000 shoes on display, this place is worth a visit, especially if you're interested in Footwear Through the Ages and The Rise of the Ballet Shoe. This is definitely a interesting place to visit if you're in the Toronto area - the video above, although it is narrated by a Russian (which I don't understand), gives us a insight into what exactly is on display.
