The symbolic meaning of shoes

People use a wide variety of symbols in order to communicate with Each other and to identify themselves and the world around them. Body language, gestures, religious symbols, mathematics, colors, natural symbols and so much more. Symbols function at a deeper, almost subliminal level, more profound and direct than that of written words and speech.

The shoe as a symbol

Shoes in symbolism have a contradictory significance. They represent authority and power, but they can also represent humility, servitude. It all depends on the context we find them in.

In some religions, when you enter a temple you are required to put off your shoes, showing humbleness and respect to the divine. In this case Shoes are a symbol of obedience, of earthly in contrast with the holy. "Put off thy Shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground ', is the command to Moses" (Exod. 3. 5).

In older times, not all People could afford buying Shoes (slaves often didn't wear shoes), that is why they are associated with wealth, freedom and comfort, but also with the other side of the coin: vanity and arrogance. An example of such symbolism can be found in Hans Christian Andersen's story The Red Shoes. Platform Shoes (chopines) were born in the 16th century as symbol of wealth. Women wearing excessively high chopines could not manage to walk without the assistance of at least two servants. In fact, the reason why men still offer women their arm today dates back to when women wore chopines and needed that little extra help to be able To go forward. Excessively high chopines in Italy offered the opportunity for more fabric to be displayed but it also offered the opportunity for servants to be displayed
