During our visit to Toronto, Canada, one of the places we visited was Bata Shoe Museum. And for a shoe lover like me, coz I have a “few” pairs of shoes at home”, I was really curious of what we can see at this museum. I may not be able to visit many museums that often, but given the chance I am really enjoying it because I can learn something from history and at the same time appreciate the beauty of the particular item I can see in the museum.
So going back to Bata Shoe Museum, like what is stated on their website http://www.batashoemuseum.ca “for every shoe there’s a story…” I do believe in that after seeing the different shoes we saw at this wonderful museum. From shoes that you can use during winter time, shoes in Chinese era, shoes during the beginning of times to the shoes of today, from the most unusual design and to the most expensive one, and a lot more. Here are some of them.
It’s amazing right? Well actually there’s a lot more. And from all of them I found something that I really hope that I can have someday. Aside from the fact that’s one of my dream shoe brand, its also something that I want to wear and I believe what I can wear. Because for me, as long as you are comfortable and you want something, you can slay it. Look at my pick from all of the amazing shoes.
Who wouldn’t want a pair of this Christian Louboutin shoes right? How I hope and wish someone can send me this pair (dream big and wish bigger than your dreams if you can).
Every shoe has its own story to tell, whether from the history of the shoes as why it crafted, or even for whom the shoes was designed for, and also your personal story of your own pair of shoes and its sentimental value. Just like the story of Manolo Blahnik, we were lucky enough to see his showroom of shoes that he designed was exhibited during that time at the Bata Shoe Museum. And I must say, the designs are really outstanding and beautiful and its a dream come true for any girl or lady to have, just look at this photos and look at my friend Marci as well.
Just a thought:
Does the shoes that we wear defines who we are, or can it even tell our story? Well, for me it doesn’t matter how beautiful our shoes are, how expensive it is or even how cheap we are able to get it; how unique your shoes is, or how exclusive you were able to get it from a designer store, if we will only take the shortcut, and even step into someone else’s foot to reach the top or where we are in our lives at the moment. Because I believe, the best success story we can have, is when we are able to gain lessons from the challenges we face from the path we have taken just to reach our goal/s in life. And from there we are able to experience the good and bad, the highs and lows of life; from there we can gain life lessons on how to be strong even when we are weak, how to be tough when we are about to give up, and never to lose hope even during the darkest times of our lives. And from there we can inspire the people around us; and when you stumble stand up slowly and when we are brought down to our knees it’s not for us to give up but a time for us to pray. Shoe them what you got, shoe that what you are made of, and shoe them that you can and you will, Marke My Word.
