Fairy tales have typically had an excellent wearable tech. It can be red shoes and glass slipper to Puss’s boots. Shuri, Disney’s most current princess, also the genius Wakanda teen of Marvel’s “Black Panther” 2018, showcases sneakers she has developed. She is the most current hero to acknowledge a shoe’s potential. The seven-league boots in fairy tales cover vast distances in just a single step. It is centuries before the space shoes of Neil Armstrong landed on the moon. It was termed as one little step for a man but one giant leap for the whole humanity. Little Thumbling, Charles Perrault’s character, turns the boots into becoming a financial asset. This has been in the realms of human history since time immemorial.

When a less fortunate woodcutter and his wife leave their children, the abandoned kids take refuge in the home of an ogre. The youngest is little Thumbling. He counters the ogre’s plan to feed on them, and they even flee. The ogre who was wearing a seven-league boot gave chase but eventually gets tired and falls into slumber. The hero who is seen as diminutive steals the shoes from his feet and starts a flourishing courier business with them. The Galoshes of fortune in 1838 is one of Hans Christian Andersen films. It is featured with galoshes which can travel through space and time. Moreover, the galoshes could take their respective owners to space or even back to the median ages. It has been noted that in many fairy tales, the shoes are about innovation and desire.

In the movie curses and refined style, there was a little girl who was cursed. She had taken such great joy in red shoes. She could not find herself not dancing while still wearing her shoes. She wanted her feet cut off by the executioner. The red shoes were still on her feet and even danced off through the jungle. Such was Karen’s fate; the shoe-obsessed Hans Christian Andersen character. The shoes are viewed as being the stars of this 1845 fairy tale. The overt religion, graphic violence and strict class hierarchy all aim at condemning a kid for her shoes. When the story starts, Karen is so poor that she is barefoot. She has shoes made of wood for winter. Karen is given the red shoes to put on at her mother’s funeral. The love followed by the curse for the boots begins there.
