LOOK: Shoes take over Marikina City’s traffic lights
It’s shoe and tell at the country's shoe capital, just in time for their Sapatos Festival

MANILA, Philippines — The pride and joy of Marikina, the country’s very own shoe capital, are taking over the city, one cute, shoe-shaped traffic light at a time.

Select traffic lights stationed at certain intersections have been surprising commuters on the road, thanks to the Marikina City local government’s efforts in promoting the Sapatos Festival, a celebration which began on November 12, 2018 and will run until January 6, 2019.

You can find these traffic lights along Sumulong Highway corner Shoe Avenue, Sumulong Highway corner Gil Fernando Avenue, at A. Bonifacio Avenue at Barangay Barangka.

From boots, heels, and even to loafers, which shoe-shaped traffic light have you spotted around the city so far, and which one’s your favorite? Shoes wisely! —Rappler.com
