Zlín Museum of Shoemaking
A show not only for the ladies is provided by this specialised museum, which you will find in the centre of the Czech shoemaking capital. More than a thousand exhibits will take you through the legendary production of the Baťa company (1884–1945) and also the history of a trade that has protected and beautified people’s feet since time immemorial.
The oldest originals date back to the 16th
century, Czech examples being supplemented with a unique collection of foreign shoes. Among the exhibits from around the world, you will see sandals made from emu feathers and human hair, which were used for ritual ceremonies in central Australia.
