Introduction Discover the treasures of North America's charming and surprising shoe museum. Hundreds of shoes (from a collection numbering over 13,000) are on exhibit in architect Raymond Moriyama's award-winning four-storey structure. The BSM celebrates the style and function of footwear in four impressive galleries. Footwear on display ranges from Chinese bound foot shoes and ancient Egyptian sandals to chestnut-crushing clogs and glamourous platforms. Over 4,500 years of history are reflected in a semi-permanent exhibition and three changing exhibitions, so there's always something new to see.
