The Shoe People

In a Shoe Repairs Shop, not too far away, the Shoe Mender tries to repair all the shoes he gets, but sometimes he cannot repair them all. But he does not throw away these shoes, he puts them in the back room of the shop.

These join the other shoes and boots he could not bear to throw away and the ones where their owners never came back for them but this room has a secret. Every night when the Shoe Mender locks up the shop, he makes sure the back room door is shut. This door does not shut very easily and when he slams it shut, the strangest thing happens. A large cloud of dust from the room fills the air and when it settles, the Shoes come to life and the back wall disappears and Shoe Town appears.

Just below Toecap Hill is Shoe Town, where all the Shoes and Boots live.

The Shoe People was an animated television series which was first broadcast in the UK in April 1987 on TV-am. The Shoe People went on to be broadcast in 62 countries around the world. It ran for 52 episodes. It was the first series from the West to be shown in the former Soviet Union and became so popular there that they sold over 25 million Shoe People books.

The Shoe People was created by James Driscoll, who got the inspiration for the show from noticing that the style and appearance of people’s shoes told you about their owners’ personalities. He then wondered what stories these shoes could tell about themselves when they were new and when they had gradually worn out.

The theme song for The Shoe People was written and sung by Justin Hayward of The Moody Blues.
