A Pair of Shoes is one of several pairs of shoes or clogs that Vincent van Gogh painted during his lifetime. The artist painted them with character and gave them just as much importance as a portrait or a beautiful landscape. Vincent found beauty in the everyday, in the things that people take for granted, and deemed them worthy of a painting.
