This quirky museum is dedicated to the style and function of footwear in four impressive galleries. With over 10,000 pairs of shoes, displays range from different cultures from China to Egypt and even a collection of 20th century celebrity soles

The museum has three types of exhibitions:
  1. The main exhibitions, which include one semi-permanent and three changing exhibitions in specially-designed galleries, which can go on to become Travelling Exhibitions
  2. 'Snapshot' exhibits, on display for one or two weeks and feature five to ten display cases
  3. Online exhibitions
Semi-Permanent exhibitions give you an overview of footwear history such as the All About Shoes flagship display, a voyage through 4500 years of footwear. More unusual programs include the current “Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture” exhibit or the snapshot series of Tuscany, an exhibition of photos by Italian photographer Matteo Brogi which examines Italian society from the knees down on display for the 2013 season.
