Explanation: Shoe = chaussure or sometimes semelle (technical sense). However like Albert I would prefer chaussettes (socks) in the following case:
If you would like to name your cat "shoes" because he has white "feet" with an overall black color, you should name it "chaussettes" rather than shoes
because, in such a case, we say in french that he has some "jolies chaussettes".
