Poet Luis Carlos Lopez wrote a sonnet comparing his affection for his nation as similar to the affection he felt for an old pair of boots, and how he would never give either up. After the poem became famous, the sculptor Hector Lombana Pineres ended up crafting these bronze shoes as a monument to that sentiment. The toe of one of the shoes is kept shiny by the many visitors who take a seat while posing for photographs. You can actually climb into the shoes for a picture. Vendors peddling fruits and crafts throng about the place. It’s an amusing stop, but nothing worth going out of your way to see.

This kid is great great! If you really really listen to him.
It's Colombian history and craftsmanship at its finest
It's nice to take photos with the shoes here
The shoes are OK, but since they are a very short walk away from the castle, you might just as well go there. The view of the shoes with the castle in the background is nice.
Long wait, lotd of street vendors
