Who is the Shoe Lady and what’s her story?
Viv is the shoe lady. She just has one pair of shoes, and they just happen to be her work shoes and her weekend shoes, and she has lost one of them. Viv is the shoe lady with just one shoe, and she doesn’t know what to do. She’s starting to feel a little overwhelmed by everything! The curtains are falling, and her feet are bleeding but still, she has hope. After all, once she finds that missing shoe, all will be well with the world.
