Writing Prompt! These shoes are made for. . .

Writingprompt_shoes One of my all-time favorite books is Dancing Shoes by Noel Streatfeild. In fact, Streatfeild wrote a whole swath of books involving shoes: Ballet Shoes, Tennis Shoes, Circus Shoes, Party Shoes. . . you get the picture.

Dancing Shoes was my favorite of the "shoe" books because it took place in a dancing school, where the characters compete for roles and auditions, not to mention for the attention of the school's headmaster. There's drama! Humor! Intrigue! But all of the "shoe" books are great, and each is aptly named based on subject matter.

So I got to thinking: if I were to write my own "shoe" book, what would it be called? For today's writing prompt, think about your own feet, and the types of shoes that usually encase them. Do you wear cleats most of the time? Hiking boots? Pointe shoes? Snow boots?

What would your "shoe" book be called, and why? Leave a Comment and tell us!

    I’ve read Ballet Shoes and I thought it was good.
    My shoe book would be called FlipFlops because I wear them all the time in the summer and wish I could wear them all the time in other in the winter too.

    I would call the book FlipFlops. I would because they are roomy and I love to play at the beach with them on. SO USE THE NAME FLIPFLOPS! NOW! PLEEEEEEEEEASE!

    I would write a book about tenni sheos. I would beacause they are comfortable, but they make your feet stink too!
