* A legend from Ancient Greece (found first in Strabo's ''Geographica'', also in Aelian's ''Various History'') relates how the courtesan Rhodopis of Naucratis supposedly became the wife the Pharao of Egypt: An eagle carries off one of Rhodopis' sandals while she is bathing and drops it into the lap of the Pharao at Memphis. The Pharao forms the idea that the shoe must belong to a very beautiful woman and believing that the incident is a cue from the Gods, sends messengers over all of Egypt to find out the owner of the sandal to marry her. Note that it is not clear whether Rhodopis was the only woman who fit the sandal, or whether she was identified by her having the ''other'' sandal.

* Roald Dahl's take on ''Cinderella'' in ''Revolting Rhymes'' has one of the stepsisters switch the slipper with one of her own. When it fits, the prince responds by [[OffWithHisHead chopping her head off]]. And then [[AxCrazy does the same to the other stepsister]] before she can even try. Cindy is naturally horrified, and decides she wants nothing to do with this psychopath.
