  • "Today we are Cinderella because our feet fit exactly...."
  • Esperanza has on this wonderful dress, but the shoes look awful. She was embarrassed at the fact the she had no nice shoes.
  • "My feel scuffed and round, and the heels all crooked that look dumb with this dress, so I just sit."
  • "I watch them. She holds his hand, and he stops sometimes to tie her shoes."
  • Louis is taking advantage of her boyfriend. In a way she is controlling him, she has him at her every call.
  • Esparenza had just got raped by the clown that was at the carnival. As he runs away she remembers seeing his black shoes. Esparenza now has a bad association with shoes.
  • "Then the colors began to whirl. Sky tipped. Their high black gym shoes ran. Sally, you lied, you lied. He wouldn't let me go. He said I love you, I love you, Spanish girl."
  • Esparanza remembers that her shoes have taken her many places, she has been through a lot with them. She will never forget about Mango Street.
  • "I make a story for my life, for each step my brown shoe takes. I say, "And so she trudged up the wooden stairs, her sad brown shoes taking her to the house she never liked."
  • Esparenza wants to look a little bit older like Sally. She sees that all the boys like her, and want to fit in.
  • "...but I want to buy shoes just like yours, like your black ones made out of suede, just like those."
