The Marikina Footwear Museum has been around since 1998, but just in case you haven’t been there yet and are already in the area, you might as well stop by for a visit. This museum is home to over 700 pairs of shoes that belonged to First Lady Imelda Marcos – all neatly arranged and color-coded on their shelves. It also houses shoes of famous personalities, including pairs from former presidents of the Philippines, well-known politicians, government officials, celebrities and movie stars. The museum also highlights the art of shoemaking, the main industry of Marikina.
