At Toronto's Bata Shoe Museum.
To say that Sonja Bata is enthusiastic about shoes would be an understatement. Since the 1940's, Mrs. Bata, Founding Chairman of The Bata Shoe Museum Foundation, has scoured the world for shoes of every description, from the most ordinary to the most extraordinary.
Her personal passion for shoes aside, Mrs. Bata's unending quest has resulted in one of the world's finest collections and North America's unique shoe museum. Indeed, it is fortunate for students of history and fashion alike that Mrs. Bata's involvement in the shoe industry and her frequent business travels have allowed her the opportunity to build such an unparalleled collection with its wealth of historical information.
