Fiat Stilo Multiwagon commercial: This Fiat commercial aired

heel shoe rolls into the foot well next to his wife's feet although she doesn't notice it. On seeing the heel, the driver has a flashback to the previous evening where he had some people in the car including a pretty woman who may be he shouldn't have been giving a lift to. Thinking it is her shoe, he distracts his wife and throws the shoe into a nearby bin. It's then that mother-in-law looks down at her feet to find her red high-heel missing.

Nivea commercial: An interesting ad aired in Europe for Nivea deodorant, begins with an attractive blonde sitting in her apartment in casual clothing,fuzzy hair etc. Then the
doorbell rings. She reaches for intercom to realize this her boyfriend. She tells him on the intercom that the elevator is broken and he must use the stairs. Thats a lie to delay him so that she can put herself in shape. First, she rushes out to
the hallway and places one of her hi-heeled shoes (kind of a slingback) in between the doors of the elevator, so that they would not close. As the guy is shown climbing the stairs (high-rise building, it seems), she rushes back in her apartment, quickly puts her hair in shape, a little makeup, and also applies her deodorant (the message of ad). When the guy reaches her apartment and rings the doorbell the second time, her looks is perfect except for one thing: she misses one shoe. She runs to open the door and welcomes and kisses her boyfriend, always one-shod. The guy takes a funny look at her one-shod feet, then turns his head towards the elevator and sees the lonely sling back blocking the doors. The ad ends with a smile in his face making clear that he understood what was going on. An interesting and creative twist of the one-shoe theme. Captions are contributions of Nigel C. This commercial is also available on youtube.

So they added in a scene where she loses the other one so she would not be one shod, but totally barefoot. It was a cheap production obviously. In 1990 remake of the same movie, same details, only here she loses one shoe, and kicks off the other while running. Same amount of screen time and some nice close-ups, too.

Eye to Eye: This was a very short-lived detective series about a father/daughter detective agency. The series therefore made the daughter(Stephanie Faracy as Tracy) to be a bit of a klutz who often fell down andstubled along during chases. The show also seemed to lampoon other shows whichportray high-heeled women as both very tough and very feminine who can runeverywhere in high heels. On at least two occasions - once trying to run upthe long set of steps into the court house and again chasing a suspect acrossthe park, she had a shoe come off two or three times - the latter being causedby her spiked heels on her pumps digging into the wet ground. Her dad was withher both times and was frustrated with her clumsiness. In the park, she endedup having so much trouble that she took off both shoes to continue her chase.(See Kinja's series plot review at the IMDB link above).

The Concorde: Airport 79: In this airport disaster movie, the Concorde gets attacked by a missile-armed jet fighter flown by a mercanery pilot. To cheat the missile, the pilots are forced to open a cockpit side window (yeah!) to fire flares out. This leads to sudden depressurization, and the strapped passengers at the back scream in terror as oxygen masks fall down and hand bags,
lunch trays, cups etc. going flying out. On the left side, in an aisle seat is a fit brunette in business suit, skirt above knees, flesh colored hose and mustard colored medium-heeled pumps. Her right foot is slightly
turned into the aisle, and her right shoe is sucked off her foot in a split second and flies into oblivion. Incredibly, after landing and a night in Paris, the Concorde continues its journey, giving rise to a second shoe loss scene! This time there is a bomb planted in the baggage hold. When it goes off, it is not sufficient to blow the plane up, but it triggers off a gradual structure failure and the pilots, realizing there is a problem, decide to force land. The blonde reporter played by Susan Blakely (wearing a smart light-colored trouser suit, tan hose and light-colored medium-heel pumps) is seated during the descent and a hole suddenly appears in the floor below one of her feet. She screams, and you have a view of her one foot hanging over the hole, her shoes then are suddenly sucked off her foot and you see this pretty stocking feet. She pulls her knees up to her chest and puts her bare feet on the seat. Story contributed by Jerry Walsh, caps by feeture feature".

The Mummers Parade in Philadelphia - 2006: Feeture feature was lucky enough tocome across with an intentional loss in this local event in eastern Pennsylvania not televised outside of the area. One of the performances was Mummerella and the woman captain of the group lost one shoe (a grey mid-heel pump) intentionally during the performance.

She won her category, best captain!

This is the second list containing description and pics of movie and TV scenes in which women happen to lose a shoe. This category is different from the "Prime" list for one or more of the following reasons: the female character slipped her shoe off on purpose; or the errant shoe is readily recoverable or carried in hand; or she removes the remaining shoe and continues barefoot; or the loss is a result of or accompanied by editing flops and inconsistencies in the movie; or the female character is already dead; or the dose of realism is low (such as mocked/twisted Cinderella theme, fairy tales, cartoons), and so on.
Remarks and feedback are most welcome, so that I can make corrections and/or further extend the list . Please use: firstname.lastname@example.org.
