Shoes are very important to people because they provide protection and lead us to adventure. In the Holocaust Museum, there are over 25,000 shoes that remain from the ruins of the concentration camps. Everyone who sees these shoes are left with profound thought because every one of them has the imprint of the individuals who once wore them. All of these shoes help us imagine who may have been wearing them at one point and we are reminded of those who died. Each shoe at one point had an individual like you and me that once guided them to new places but now we must remember each individual so we can tell the adventure that their shoes once guided them through

Throughout the essay hyperboles are used for exaggeration to make fun of how consumers pull in their customers. One of the inventors of the shoe insert calls the insert a, "a total foot rejuvenation system." The exaggeration put on the insert clearly shows how the author is ridiculing advertisers for their fake propaganda. The statements in the essay confirm that consumers
In the text “Exposed Toes” the author, Diane Riva, reflects on her collection of shoes and how each pair has a meaning to her. She describes how each pair of shoe she owns relates to a specific memory or time period in her life. She asserts that shoes can tell stories of our lives and are not just an article of clothing that we wear on our feet. Riva goes through all the shoes she owns and explains their story and how the shoe is a part of her life. For example, she brings up her black sneakers which are worn when we works at a bar. She states, “they are constant recipients of the over-filled glass of alcohol.” From this we learn her profession and get some insight on her memories as a bartender. Riva talks about all of her shoes in this manner

Terry Moore presented a Technology, Education, Design (TED) Talk in May of 2011 entitled “How to Tie Your Shoes.” During which, he humorously explained the best way to tie one's shoes to a group of highly intelligent individuals. He displayed the age-old ways of how to tie shoes, and shows why his way is the best. Moore tries to show everyone that the processes people do every day have the possibility to be improved. Moore does a fantastic job delivering information about a seemingly silly topic, tying one’s shoes, through his own personal experiences and the informal words he used during his speech.

The primary target market of TOMS is males and females between the age of 19-24 that want to combine the creativity of being a trend-setter with the satisfaction of being socially responsible. This age range is a part of what is known as Generation Y, or the Millennials. Generation Y has brought a trend of social awareness and activity. From 2002 to 2005 the number of people volunteering went up 25%. This generation is all about giving back to the people, so Toms allows this group to give back by purchasing their shoes. TOMS has also done its homework on this group as well. Utilizing social media, TOMS reaches out to over 488,000 twitter followers, 280,000 Facebook fans, and several thousands of YouTube users. TOMS understands that generation Y prefers hands on involvement. In order to make that happen, TOMS fans are allowed to take part in a yearly One Day Without Shoes movement to understand what it is like to be shoe-less. In addition to the giving back and the social movements, TOMS shoes let young adults be expressive in their style. The plain shoe design makes way for creative minds to manipulate the shoe as anyone may please. TOMS is mainly focused in the U.S., but the shoes are available in over 30 countries globally
One day while I was at Potter, we realized that too many pants were cluttering the women’s pants bins. Over the past two sales, many of the pants had not sold because they were extremely outdated and worn, so another volunteer and I, along with our coordinator, Geneva, went through every bin of women’s pants and pulled out every pair that looked to “nineties” to sell.
Marilyn Monroe once said: “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” From the emergence of our primitive ancestors to the evolution of the modern citizen, shoes have experienced a substantial progression; an evolution, from creation to modernity. Women’s shoes, curiously enough, experienced a transformation in and of themselves; a parallelism studied famously in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Dr. Maslow has, since 1943, provided a suggestion of one’s basic and necessary needs to grow as an individual. The five-level model presents the public with a psychological investigation of a formula, so to speak; a formula followed unwittingly by the world’s population.
