Marikina City stiletto race the highlight of Sapatos festival

Men and women alike tried to compete in the ‘Tour de Takong’ or Stiletto Race run along the 500-meter stretch of Shoe Avenue in Marikina City on Friday.

The stiletto race, which features  competitors wearing three-inch high stilettos, was held as part of the town’s Sapatos (shoe) festival, which aims to promote the city’s shoe industry.

The race takes place annually to celebrate the shoe festival in the Manila suburb, which is also known as the shoe capital of the Philippines.

No news on who the winner was.
