"Bowie's calling 'put on your red shoes' recalls Hans Christian Andersen's tale "The Red Shoes", in which the little girl was vainly tempted to wear the shoes only to find they could not be removed, separating her from God's grace – "let's dance for fear your grace should fall".
"The red shoes are a found symbol. They are the simplicity of the capitalist society and sort of striving for success – black music is all about 'Put on your red shoes'", as Bowie confirmed."
