MANILA: First Lady Liza Araneta-Marcos and her mother-in-law, Imelda Romualdez-Marcos visited the Museo ng Sapatos (shoe museum) in Marikina City on Monday.

In a news release Tuesday, Marikina City Mayor Marcelino Teodoro said his wife, First District Rep. Marjorie Ann Teodoro, welcomed the Marcos ladies and led the guided tour.

The museum, which holds approximately 800 pairs of shoes from the former first lady’s renowned collection, has undergone significant upgrades, the mayor said.

‘This museum is not just a repository of footwear. It is a testament to the artistry and craftsmanship of the Filipino people. It stands as a symbol of our rich history and our continuing journey as a nation,” Mayor Teodoro said.
