The restored shoemaking workshop – we will go back in the time tunnel to the days when every girl and boy had one pair of sandals and one pair of shoes a year. How were they measured? What color did they choose? Is that where the Dr. Martens red shoes first came from? And what has Stalin got to do with it?
