Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings
Shoes in a dream can represent travel, a vehicle, or things that propel you in your life.
Some people also interpret them as persons – usually male, like a male friend, son, or brother.
When you are wearing a pair of shoes that don’t quite make sense in your dream – in that they are strange for the event in your dream or that they are something that you would never in a million years wear then this can be a weird dream indeed! The significance of this is usually that you psyche is trying to draw your attention to your shoes so that you get the meaning.
In this dream you may have...
- Lost a shoe.
- Worn odd colored shoes.
- Noticed strange looking shoes.
- Thrown away ugly shoes.
- Been unhappy with your shoes.
- Couldn’t find matching shoes.
Positive changes are afoot if…
- See or wear bright and happy colored shoes.
Detailed dream meaning...
Shoes of a specific color can indicate many things. If your shoes have silver soles this indicates freedom or breaking free from a situation and often will mean that you need to make a break from a situation you are in your life.
Red shoes indicate caution or a need for protection. Sometimes dreams like this will indicate abuse in a variety of forms. When you are the one wearing the shoes it shows abuse being done to you and a need to run from harm that is coming to you. If someone else is wearing red shoes in a dream, this is a person you need to be wary of. Your psyche identifies there is something not right about this person and is setting off a signal that it can’t quite put it’s finger on yet.
Wooden shoes or wooden soles on a shoe indicate a similar issue – a female that is going to cause you harm. If the wooden shoes are worn by a woman in your life, there is usually something they are not telling you. However these dreams come with a caution that you probably don’t WANT to know what they are hiding.
When you dream you are wearing shoes and then one of the shoes falls off this shows a separation in your future. This can result from a fall out in your life or an argument. Usually this is with a brother or male relative and indicates a need for distance. In fact, losing a shoe in general in a dream indicates a separation from someone. The color of the shoe or the action while the shoe is lost is also a symbol to what or who will be lost.
Mismatched shoes indicate your desires are not paired up with what you are currently doing in your life. This can be because you are participating in behaviors that do not align with your goals.
If you find a pair of new or brightly colored shoes then this is a good sign. This shows new love, happiness, or adventure coming into your life – A Welcome Change.
This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life...
- Sudden changes.
- Being suspicious of someone.
- Losing someone - reconnecting.
- People to avoid.
- Being attentive.
Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of odd shoes…
Strange. Unsure. Confused. Questioning. Clear. Warned. Foreboding. Shocked. Anger. Unhappiness.
