Shoe superstitions for Luck

  • It is said to be traditional in England to throw a shoe at someone when they are setting out on a journey, to wish them luck. The shoe should be thrown in the direction of the journey. When a person leaves home on a journey, throw an old shoe after him so that he will have good luck.
  • Drop an old shoe outside by the front door as you leave the house on a journey and then you will not have any bad luck on the trip.
  • If you want to conceive a child, try on the shoes of a woman who has just given birth.
  • Old shoes should be worn on Friday the 13th for good luck.
  • Nothing new should be worn to a funeral, especially shoes.
  • A dog howling at night when someone in the house is sick is a bad omen. It can be reversed by reaching under the bed and turning over a shoe.
  • If you leave shoes lying on their uppers, you will quarrel with someone during the course of the day.
