Jem's Heels and Blue Suede Shoes
|Introduction and disclaimer
Hasbro did not cut corners in their shoe production, as almost every outfit and doll came with shoes particular to it, making it tricky to complete outfits. Never mind that most of the first year outfits actually had two different pairs of shoes/colours each too! Chances are this shoe guide will help you in 95% of your mis-matched shoe cases, but unfortunately, when it comes down to some of those pinks, you're pretty much on your own!
A few things to keep in mind while using this guide
The package drawings and photos were often wrong in depicting the shoe colour or style. Part of the reason behind this ID page is to clear up those misconceptions.
This ID guide is showing primarily what came with the Hong Kong or China-made dolls. The Mexican and Spanish dolls came with their own types of shoes.
Anything written in Italics is an educated guess that does not come from direct personal experience (either my experience or a contributor's)
