In Chinese, “Worn Shoes” refers to loose woman.
A married, mid-age shoe maker, who is attracted by a dancer, makes a pair of shoes for her.
He can make the perfect shoes for her but he could never be the perfect one.
It’s about obsession.
It’s about “not getting what is wanted”.
It reveals the common perception of woman’s sexuality at that time.
