• « Le mélange des genres »
    nouvelle scénographie



The museum invites you on a journey to discover the world of this timeless , universal object – the shoe.

Its collection is kept in a prestigious setting, the former « Convent of the Visitation », allowing it to display shoes in all its forms, from the oldest to the most contempory and the most classical to the most extravagant or exotic.

Situated in Romans, a town that owes its renown to leatherworking and shoemaking, the international Museum is both a place of endless inspiration for professionals and an exceptional showcase for the famous boot and shoemakers of yesterday and today.
