Old Dominion Bust a Move in Whimsical New Video for ‘Shoe Shopping’

Screengrab via YouTube

Old Dominion’s fanciful new video for “Shoe Shopping” is a truly a perfect fit for the song.

Directed by their old pal, Steve Condon, the video playfully takes the viewer through a budding relationship. We only get a view from the waist down — which sounds weird, but it’s not. The only faces we see are the occasional shots of the band members, but even this is done in a quirky way. It’s country music meets La La Land, and it works surprisingly well.

The dancing couple steps from dating to marriage. We get to see everything from the “meet cute” to the new house. Throughout the video, the couple makes it through several pairs of shoes, disagreements and happy occasions. Finally, there’s a tiny new pair of shoes that make an appearance.

The music world needs more videos like this. It’s downright delightful, and Old Dominion should be applauded for their creativity.

“Shoe Shopping” is the third single off their upcoming album, Happy Endings, due out on Aug. 25. “No Such Thing As A Broken Heart,” the first single off the album, is currently climbing up the charts.

“Shoe Shopping” Lyrics

Some don’t last the way they should
Some make you feel good for a little while
And then you throw ’em away
Some are up on a shelf for some other day
Some are high dollar, some ain’t worth a dime
But you keep ’em anyway

Everybody’s looking for something
So how do I catch your eye, eye, eye

If you’re shoe shopping walk a mile with me
Slip a Cinderella slipper right on your feet
Take my arm, strut down the street tonight
(Strut down that street tonight)
If you’re downtown on the browse about
Looking for the perfect fit, how’s about
Some high-heel, high-top, pump ’em up, flip-flop
Heads-up, lucky penny loafer on a sidewalk
Patten leather, blue suede, tailor made, whatever you like
If you’re shoe shopping, try me on for size

You’re stepping on cracks, you’re breaking your back
You’re working so damn hard just to make it look easy
Come dance with me ’cause dancings free
Let me sweep you right off your feet
Whatever your style is, girl, that’s what mine is
I could go good with your eyes

If you’re shoe shopping walk a mile with me
Slip a Cinderella slipper right on your feet
Take my arm, strut down the street tonight
(Strut down that street tonight)
If you’re downtown on the browse about
Looking for the perfect fit, how’s about
Some high-heel, high-top, pump ’em up, flip-flop
Heads-up, lucky penny loafer on a sidewalk
Patten leather, blue suede, tailor made, whatever you like
If you’re shoe shopping, try me on for size

Yeah, everybody’s looking for something
So how do I catch your eye, eye, eye

If you’re shoe shopping walk a mile with me
Slip a Cinderella slipper right on your feet
Take my arm, strut down the street tonight
(Strut down that street tonight)
If you’re downtown on the browse about
Looking for the perfect fit, how’s about
Some high-heel, high-top, pump ’em up, flip-flop
Heads-up, lucky penny loafer on a sidewalk
Patten leather, blue suede, tailor made, whatever you like
If you’re shoe shopping, try me on for size
Try me on for size, try me on for size
Never know unless you try

Some don’t last the way they should
Some make you feel good for a little while
And then you throw ’em away
Some are up on a shelf for some other day
Some are high dollar, some ain’t worth a dime
But you keep ’em anyway

Everybody’s looking for something
So how do I catch your eye, eye, eye

If you’re shoe shopping walk a mile with me
Slip a Cinderella slipper right on your feet
Take my arm, strut down the street tonight
(Strut down that street tonight)
If you’re downtown on the browse about
Looking for the perfect fit, how’s about
Some high-heel, high-top, pump ’em up, flip-flop
Heads-up, lucky penny loafer on a sidewalk
Patten leather, blue suede, tailor made, whatever you like
If you’re shoe shopping, try me on for size

You’re stepping on cracks, you’re breaking your back
You’re working so damn hard just to make it look easy
Come dance with me ’cause dancings free
Let me sweep you right off your feet
Whatever your style is, girl, that’s what mine is
I could go good with your eyes

If you’re shoe shopping walk a mile with me
Slip a Cinderella slipper right on your feet
Take my arm, strut down the street tonight
(Strut down that street tonight)
If you’re downtown on the browse about
Looking for the perfect fit, how’s about
Some high-heel, high-top, pump ’em up, flip-flop
Heads-up, lucky penny loafer on a sidewalk
Patten leather, blue suede, tailor made, whatever you like
If you’re shoe shopping, try me on for size

Yeah, everybody’s looking for something
So how do I catch your eye, eye, eye

If you’re shoe shopping walk a mile with me
Slip a Cinderella slipper right on your feet
Take my arm, strut down the street tonight
(Strut down that street tonight)
If you’re downtown on the browse about
Looking for the perfect fit, how’s about

Heads-up, lucky penny loafer on a sidewalk
Patten leather, blue suede, tailor made, whatever you like
If you’re shoe shopping, try me on for size
Try me on for size, try me on for size
Never know unless you try
