Dream About Shiny Shoes

Siny shoes can present themselves in many ways during a dream. From shiny patent leathers to plastic shoes. When I think of shiny shoes I often think of shiny office shoes, the TV series suits where shiny shoes walked the hallways of the law firm. If you are wearing shiny shoes during the dream then I do feel this is a positive omen.

Shiny shoes were first invented in 1819 by Seth Boydon in New Jersey. They then went through a commercial manufacturer. The shoes are often considered to be siny and formal. Men's patent leather shoes in dreams are connected to how we feel inside.

Shiny shoes are about your life, the fact you are on the right path and I do feel this dream is positive in nature. The “shine” on the shoes can indicate that you need to shine in life. Just like the sun.

The vibe when the shiny shoes appear in our dreams is often an omen to not feel too good and stressed! This is a dream symbol that will let you know that everything is going well. The shine on the shoe is a beacon of joy, optimism, and positive energy, reminding us to look at the bright side in our current circumstances. Shoes represent our life journey and indicate we are on a spiritual path. No matter how difficult or dark life can be at times we always need to shine.

What does it mean to dream of shiny shoes?

The shiny black shoes in dreams remind us to find the positive aspects in our lives, be optimistic, and look for happiness. The shiny shoe is your spiritual sign for a well-deserved break or a whole day off if you feel overwhelmed, sluggish or disenchanted recently. To rejuvenate, get outside and feel the sun on your face. Shine like your shoes shined in your dream. 

Why do people shine their shoes anyway? If you dream about your shiny shoes at work, or a wedding, graduation or even a man going for an important interview the following maybe featured in your dream;

  • You could have seen shoe polish
  • You could have seen cotton balls
  • You could have visited a shoe shiner
  • You could have used a shine cloth
  • Maybe you saw a shoe polish brush

The most important element in this dream is that you or someone else is wearing clean shoes. Clean shoes in dreams represent the fact that we can take action. This dream is also about how you assist others in defining what they want. Shiny shoe dreams is all about setting personal goals. How can you map your path if you aren't clear about where you want to go? If you're heading in the right direction, how can you tell? In order to know if you're on the right path, how can you tell?

  • There are many levels of goals you need:
  • It is your major life goals (long-term goals) that will guide you.
  • Medium-term Goals, the stepping stones to bring long-term goals in focus.
  • In order to achieve your medium-term goals, it is important to set short-term goals. Your daily actions will also be guided by them.

What does the shoe mean in your dream?

In dreams, shiny shoes are about one’s spiritual journey and life. This means that you can trust in your spirit guides to help beat your “shiny” challenges. We can all sine if we have the right goals in life. The shoes in the dream is reminding you that you can. After all, our spirit guides shine with us in life. As I have already said above, the dream about shiny shoes could signify your path to your goals. Think about how we ground ourselves, our shoes are the connection to the earth, so your shiny shoe dreams can reflect your relationship with the spiritual world and your daily life. 

There may be other aspects of this dream. This is a dream sign that you are grounded and humble. It is a bad sign to have a dream that your shiny shoes are broken, or they are old - maybe even too worn. Such a dream suggests that you must work hard to resolve problems, which is good news. To dream of a boss (maybe in the past or present) wearing a pair of shiny shoes suggests that they are grounded and down-to-earth. This is also a good time for your career.

Dreams of shiny shoes can also suggest small bumps or obstacles are likely to occur in the near future. Despite any setbacks, I feel this dream shows you're ready to overcome them. There is a possibility that you will encounter problems if the shiny shoes are too large for your feet. This could indicate that you feel problems in a career. It is a sign that perhaps your position might have changed, or you might find someone who would like to promote you in the future. To dream of a woman in shiny shoes indicates something might overwhelm you.

To lose shiny shoes in a dream means you might experience a delay in an event that you have been planning for a long time. Dreaming about shiny shoes that don’t fit you is a way to hide your true colors from those around you according to older dream books.
