The Shoe Museum
Portail Roger VivierRue Bistour26100 Romans-sur-Isère

The Shoe Museum invites you on a journey to discover the world of this timeless, universal object: the shoe. Situated in Romans, a town that owes its renown to leatherworking and shoemaking.

The cells, once occupied by the Visitandine nuns, are now the setting for a collection of shoes from their origins to the present day: from unusual pairs from the 4 corners of the world to contemporary designers.

All forms of footwear are on display, from the oldest to the most contemporary, from the most classic to the most extravagant and the most exotic, not forgetting the creations of famous bootmakers past and present.
Musketeer boots, Chinese women's ankle boots for mutilated feet, medieval poulaines... 16,500 collector's items from antiquity to the present day, representing 4,000 years of history, are displayed in rotation in the cells once occupied by the Visitation nuns.
There are also paintings (17th, 18th and 19th centuries) and temporary exhibitions.
All presented in the former Visitation convent (17th century), set in landscaped gardens listed as a historic monument.
