There are literally only a few days left to see these Italian chopines from 1590-1600 at the Bata Shoe Museum exhibition On a Pedestal. Having been conserved especially for this exhibition, they will be returned to  Museo Stefano Bardini, Florence, Italy next week. The last day to see these particular shoes is May 5, 2010.  They are so fragile that they will NEVER again be displayed. Don't miss the opportunity to see this extraordinary example of tall chopines which literally put women on pedestals!
