Marikina Shoe Museum


The Marikina Shoe Museum..

The Shoe Museum was conceived in 1998 under then Mayor Bayani F. Fernando on the assumption that the City, being the Shoe Capital of the Philippines, can be a significant venue for nurturing the historical and cultural values of its shoe industry. It was opened in February 16, 2001 and was initially called the Footwear Museum of Marikina.

You won’t be able to take pictures inside the museum… there will be a tour guide that will explain to you what you will see there such as these…

A collection of shoes… (what else). Mostly from former Philippine First Lady, Imelda Marcos.

Here are some photos from Kahanga-hangang Pilipinas

  2. Hi, would you know if there are any shoe tours around marikina? Like with designers or shoe factories? I would also love to meet the shoe makers themselves. I heard some have been featured over at CNN.

  3. You said You won’t be able to take pictures inside the museum. I guess that has changed. I was there in March and was able to take pictures and video inside the museum
