Bata Shoe Museum

Toronto, Canada
4.6 / 15
The collection of the museum was collected by the founder of the shoe company "Bata" and his wife. It all started with a few samples of shoes that Sonya Bata brought from various trips. At the moment, the exposition occupies three floors of a separate building. Here are collected more than 12 thousand samples from all over the world. There are even quite “fossil” couples from Ancient Egypt, antique sandals and medieval boots.
Address:327 Bloor Street West, Toronto
