Although shoes (mostly heels) getting caught in grates, cracks and grates rarely cause a permament shoe loss, they often cause the shoe to come off or leave the girl in one shoe for a few minutes.

This section contains a list of links to web sites, blogs and photo servers where photographs of shoe loss or one-shod women appear. It was compiled by Kinja over the years and posted in his geocities page. When geocities closed, he was kind enough to allow me to move those links here, so that this lobarious list is not lost forever. I took the liberty of removing some links that did not work anymore.
