What does shoes mean in dreams?

Today’s term from Dream Sight: A Dictionary and Guide For Interpreting Any Dream is Shoes.  For no particular reason…

Shoes

Universal Landscape:  How grounded you are.

Dreaming Lens:  Were you wearing shoes?  Were you looking for shoes?  Were you shopping for shoes?  Were you putting them on or taking them off?  Were they yours or someone else’s?  Were you aware of whose shoes you were wearing?  Was someone else wearing your shoes?

Personal Focus:  Shoes simultaneously protect our feet as well as express our sense of style.  Our feet symbolize how grounded we are and our ability to maneuver effectively on our chosen path.  The shoes that we wear or see in a dream reflect two things:  how we protect the stand we take in life and how we express ourselves with regard to the steps we take as we walk through life.

Looking at a particular pair of shoes to wear in a dream connects to a direction you have not yet embarked upon but may be considering.  Noticing someone else’s shoes might point to a number of thoughts about others, including envy, judgment or compassion–the latter of which can only occur when you have walked a mile in another person’s shoes.

A single shoe means a path that is only half-considered, or a switch that occurs midway through a process.  Losing or looking for shoes might point out insecurity that keeps you from moving through life in a more grounded fashion.  Sneakers or athletic shoes connect to speed and increased performance.  High- heeled shoes make a statement about a deliberate presentation that has impact, but can debilitate movement.  Wearing a very expensive shoe might illuminate issues around the desire for abundance.
