* German film director Creator/WernerHerzog once made a wager with his friend, documentarian Creator/ErrolMorris, promising that he would eat his shoe if Morris ever completed his full-length film ''GatesOfHeaven''. When Morris did, Herzog used the wager to raise publicity and dined on the footwear at a local restaurant after the premiere. Another filmmaker, Les Blank, recorded the event for the short film [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ''Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe''.]]

Out of all the unusual things that someone can eat, shoes tend to be the most popular choice in fiction. Probably because they are the type of clothing one misses the least. Also, they tend to be made of leather (which resembles food the most out anything else you'll ever wear).[[note]]Unless, of course you happen to be Music/LadyGaga. Then it's [[IconicOutfit something else.]][[/note]] TropeMaker is probably Creator/CharlieChaplin, who did it first in his classic ''Film/TheGoldRush'' (1925). A subtrope of PovertyFood.
