Marikina Shoe Museum, J. P. Rizal Street, Marikina, Metro Manila, Philippines
The Marikina Shoe Museum is turning 18 this February 16. To celebrate its anniversary, the Marikina City Government had put a program together featuring live shoemaking by Zapateria, cultural dance performance by Marikina Dance Guild, and music by Marikina Rondalla Band.
Step by Step is an interactive intergenerational shoemaking exhibit that will showcase how the traditional craft has been handed-down over the years from generations to a new breed of footwear artisans.
The exhibit celebrates the shoemaking heritage and its artisanal take on design, pattern, last sculpting, upper making, lasting, bottoming and finishing to be demonstrated back-to-back by the featured earlier and new generation craftsmen of the Marikina shoe industry.
