The Glass Slippers | A Dream


I had a very short dream on 8/1/11.  I went shopping with a male friend who needed a new pair of dress shoes.  He took me to a small custom shoe shop that also sold ready made shoes.  We looked around the store and chose several styles for him to try on.

We sat down as the salesman placed several boxes on the floor and my friend began trying on shoes.  Sitting across from him, I watched as he walked around checking the fit.  We critiqued each choice to determine which pair looked best on him.

The salesman came over and said to my friend, I’ve got a special pair of shoes just for you.  He quickly ran to the back and brought out a pair of men’s glass slippers.  I was astonished, because I’d never seen men’s glass slippers before.  The salesman explained the origin of the shoes and how they were made.  We both marveled at the beautiful crystal stunners and I inspected every aspect of their design and sparkling brilliance.  I noticed that they looked like a pair of tuxedo shoes and were perfect in every aspect.  My friend never tried on the shoes, we just looked at and gently handled them.

The salesman noticed how enthralled I was with the glass slippers and said to me, I’ve got a pair you might like, then ran to the back.  I was expecting a pair of sparkling ladies glass slippers, I might be able to try on.  The salesman scurried back to present a beautiful dark brown leather shoe with a tapered wooden wedge high heel.  They were oxford wing tips with ornate perforated hole detailing and leather bottoms, I immediately fell in love.  I closely studied and admired how well the leather and wooden heel matched in color.  I just sat there staring at these shoes thinking about how much I wanted them.  The dream ended.

    dreaming of a glass slipper? I was gonna say did you fall asleep watching Cinderella (the brandy/whitney houston version of course). But interesting dream…I couldn’t really picture a man’s shoe made out of glass but I like all the aspects you used to pick apart the dream.
    So I guess, based upon your dream, you are about to embark on something new?
