A giant shoe replica was displayed at a mall in Marikina City, Manila, on September 16. The world’s largest shoe was unveiled with Filipino politician Imelda Marcos, as a celebrity endorser.
Marikina shoes were once widely used both locally and abroad. Marikina-made snake-skin shoes became the toast of Fifth Avenue in the early-1980s, but today the Philippines’ cobblers are in danger of being buried by an avalanche of cheap imports.
