A shoe is an item of footwear intended to protect and comfort the human foot while the wearer is doing various activities. They were originally created simply to protect the wearers feet.  In modern times, shoes are also used as a fashion item.  Traditionally, shoes have been made from leather, wood or canvas, but they are also made from rubber, plastics, and other petrochemical-derived materials.  Footwear comes in a wide variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and uses.  Athletic shoes, boots, dress shoes, and more can be researched from the links below.

The section below is for "learning" about footwear.  It is not specifically for buying shoes.  If you actually wish to shop for shoes, here is the best place to do some Shopping For Shoes.
