A shoe is a type of footwear designed to keep the human foot safe and comfortable. Shoes may also be used for fashion and decoration. Shoes have evolved dramatically over time and from culture to culture, with appearance initially being linked to function. Despite the fact that the human foot is adapted to a variety of terrain and climate conditions, it is nevertheless vulnerable to environmental hazards such as sharp rocks and temperature extremes, which are protected by shoes. Steel-soled boots, for example, are available on construction sites and are worn as safety footwear.

Fashion has also influenced many design aspects, such as whether or not shoes have very high heels or are flat. The design, sophistication, and cost of contemporary footwear varies greatly. Simple sandals with only a thin sole and a simple strap can be sold for a low price. Popular designers' high-fashion shoes can be made of luxury materials, have intricate construction, and sell for hundreds or even thousands of dollars a pair. Some shoes are made for particular purposes, such as mountaineering or skiing boots, while others have a broader use, such as sneakers, which have evolved from a specific purpose sport shoe to a general purpose shoe.

Shoes have traditionally been made of leather, wood, or canvas, but rubber, plastics, and other petrochemical-derived materials are increasingly being used. The shoe industry is worth $200 billion a year. Since the products are difficult to separate, recycle, or reuse, 90% of shoes end up in landfills.
