Dreaming about shoes is actually pretty common and the meaning behind it is mostly good but it can depend sometimes it is not the best sign.

If we go back a thousand years ago for example people did not have any shoes or anything on their feet they were barefoot so they had many injuries and trouble while walking running or doing any activities.

Shoes were created and designed so we as humans could have an easier life, they provide protection for our feet and now they are the main part of our life in some way .

So shoes are made to spare us from unnecessary injuries and for better appearance, they have  made our life so much easier .

They are a part of our daily routine you wear them all the time so it is not that strange when they appear in your dreams.

Shoes in a dream have more than one meaning, they represent protection, beauty, social class, in most cases they are sign that you want a better life and a different path.

You can dream about new or old shoes, losing shoes or something like that but what is important also is the colour of the shoes you see in that dream because if you want to know the true meaning then you should be specific about those details .

Sometimes seeing everyday things makes them appear in our dreams but in most cases it is connected with your subconscious and inner spirit, every single thing we think about or feel can be shown in our dream world.

Dreaming about good or bad fit- When trying on some new heels or sneakers we often make mistakes about our number and the shoe fits bad it is too small or too tight.

When in a dream your shoes are too big then this suggests that you are trying to fill something in or do the job all by yourself , maybe you are new for example you start training kick box and everyone there is awesome and practised but you have no clue how to throw your leg, so you realise that it took them years and years to be good fighters and then you have that huge pressure that you have to be like them you have to do twice as much to get to their level. Shoe is too big and you are too small at that moment.
