2 hrs
savate


Explanation:
You may also try this one. I've noticed that people like to call their pets with funny names. So try savate and see if the cat respond.
By the way savate is an old shoe.

2 hrs
chaussettes


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".

Hoe it helps !
