* In ''Literature/GhostStory'', ghostly Harry rushes back into the Corpsetaker's lair to stop her from [[spoiler: eating all the Lecter Specters so as to grow more powerful]], and arrives just in time to see her gulp down one of the child-ghosts' shoes.

** One of the wizards mentioned having to eat boots in desperation when, as a student, he and some classmates undertook an expedition to find the UU Library's legendary Lost Reading Room. They didn't find it, but they ''did'' find the remains of the previous year's expedition ... and ate ''their'' boots, too.

* In ''Discworld/{{Hogfather}}'' the manager of the restaurant in Ankh-Morpork, a former chef, is able to make meals out of mud and old boots (after Death steals his food stocks to feed the beggars) by a combination of skill and 'headology' (people will eat anything in a fancy restaurant if the menu is in French... Er, Quirmian). In ''Nanny Ogg's Cookbook'' it's noted that mud and old boots-based cuisine eventually caught on across the city's posh restaurants. You don't carry [[IndestructibleEdible Dwarf Bread]] to eat. You carry it so that your shoes taste better by comparison.

* ''Film/TheGoldRush'': Creator/CharlieChaplin and Big Jim, the man he's rooming with at an isolated cabin, are so starved that they start eating one of Chaplin's shoes. It seems to taste to him very well by the way, in fact it TastesLikeChicken. Fun fact: The shoe was made out of licorice. They shot so many takes, that Chaplin had to be rushed to the hospital for an insulin shot.

moved Herzog's story to "Real Life" section
* German film director Creator/WernerHerzog literally ate one of his shoes because he lost a bet. He swore that he would eat his shoe if Errol Morris ever completed the film ''GatesOfHeaven''. When Morris did Herzorg took the opportunity to let film director Les Blank film his activity, which was named ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: ''Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe'' (1980). If you're wondering, he boiled it with onions first.

* Film director Creator/WernerHerzog once made a wager with then-aspiring filmmaker Creator/ErrolMorris that if Morris completed his first documentary "Gates of Heaven", Herzog would eat his shoe. When the film premiered in Berkeley, Herzog made a public spectacle of having his shoe boiled in a garlic broth at a nearby restaurant and consuming all but the sole, saying "one does not eat the bones of the chicken." Fellow filmmaker Les Blank covered the event for the short film [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe".]]
