I thank Marc Jacobs so much for giving me the opportunity to design a shoe for Louis Vuitton, but the thing that broke my heart most was when they said, 'You're finished. The shoe's finished.'
When you sketch a shoe but don't have the intention to do a proper shoe, it remains a curvy sketch with no detail. The shoe completely morphs to the body.
I have huge hands and feet. I'm 5'6" and wear a size 10 shoe.
To throw a shoe at a man in Dundee is the equivalent of a kiss on the cheek and an embrace in London. Dundee is a very different place; they have their own rules.
Today's average American is more apt to rebel against a tennis shoe not coming in the right color than against the slow erosion of our democratic freedom.
If there are kids who want to follow in my footsteps, I'd say that my shoes are too big for them to fill! But their shoe size is just perfect.
If the shoe fits, it is probably worn out.
Uggs are comfort shoes, and it's important to have a shoe that gives you a sense of comfort. I have about 15 pair of Uggs - the same shoe, the same color. And I also have the bedroom slippers.
Andre Leon Talley
The sports apparel industry was dominated by the big shoe companies. But there was a void in apparel and I decided to fill it.
I have the idea that running shoes are based on a kind of cult idea - that our feet are flawed and we need shoes to correct those flaws. The shoe companies are in the business of selling shoes. But there's no evidence from running shoe manufacturers that they're right. There's no scientific data that running shoes reduce injury.
I just think it's great to show a gown that's $8,000 and a shoe that's, like, $25 - but still look fabulous together.
I really had no great love for shoes. I was a working First Lady; I was always in canvas shoes. I did nurture the shoes industry of the Philippines, and so every time there was a shoe fair, I would receive a pair of shoes as a token of gratitude.
Wearing a great shoe is essential for me.
I have no problem with the idea of comfort, but it is not an important thing aesthetically. If you look at a shoe and immediately say it looks very comfortable, in terms of design, it is not going to excite me. Of course, I am not putting nails in my shoes to ensure everybody is in pain, but a heel is not a pair of slippers and never will be.
A shoe that is too large is apt to trip one, and when too small, to pinch the feet. So it is with those whose fortune does not suit them.
I wanted to make the lightest shoe possible, but still be able to perform at the same time.
In the dressing room, I always put on my right shoe first. Same thing for my right wristband.
Mary Lou Retton
Whether it's a bright shoe or a clutch or a lipstick, I've had a lot of fun using color contacts as an accessory.
To be slapped with a shoe is a dirty insult in the Muslim world.
Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.
I've never owned an actual trail-running shoe myself, but maybe I should. My favorite paths are fraught with peril, much of it skulking at shoelace level. A rock, a root, an errant pine cone. Wham, and you're down, choking in dust and picking pebbles from wounds in your forearms and knees.
A vigorous temper is not altogether an evil. Men who are easy as an old shoe are generally of little worth.
If a man's fortune does not fit him, it is like the shoe in the story; if too large it trips him up, if too small it pinches him.
Don't reject a shoe because you can't run in it. It's OK not to run.
Stiletto, I look at it more as an attitude as opposed to a high-heeled shoe.
The shoe is very much an X-ray of social comportment.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci

Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.
