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
