From the MarioWiki: A Goomba's Shoe (previously known as Kuribo's Shoe) is a large, green-colored boot with a wind-up key sticking out of the back of it; it is also one of the rarest of all the power-ups in all of the Mario series.

The green Goomba Shoe makes only 1 appearance throughout the Mario games in Super Mario Bros. 3, Level 5-3 Skyland.  See a video of it's amazing capabilities in action here!  (at 0:25)

When I first played Mario 3, I had no idea you could sit in the shoe for a ride!

Boot-er luck next time, Goomba!  (props to the bf for thinking up the hilarious caption  Cheesy)

All is forgiven-- we can share the boot!  Over the weekend I sewed on 2 very tiny yellow buttons for Mario's overalls, but forgot to re-take the pictures!

Mario: 4.5"
Goomba: 2"
Green Shoe: 4"

These were made with my own crochet pattern.  I didn't write any of it down though, I am really terrible at writing patterns! 

I scribbled a quick Mario background to take some photos, haha!  I hope you enjoyed them!  Any comments (good/bad/suggestions) would be appreciated  Smiley

That is great!  I loved the shoe in the game, and was so disappointed I couldn't stay in it longer.  Wonderful job!

AAH!  Soooo cute.  I was talking to some friends the other day and something was hopping by and I said, "That's just like Goomba's Shoe."  They all thought I was crazy.  I tried to explain it and it just got worse. Smiley

Thanks for all the kind comments!  I just found out these guys got featured on Technabob!  What an honor!

can you tell me how you did the boot? its super cute.
Hi Josy!  I am really sorry I didn't write out a pattern for it, I can try to when I get home!  but I drew out a diagram for you for the time being!

I hope that makes some sense  Huh

They all thought I was crazy.  I tried to explain it and it just got worse. Smiley
Haha, I know what you mean!  I showed my friends, and they said "I don't get the boot..." and I was explaining "You know...Mario hops around in it...it's got that wind-up dealy in the back?"  ...blank stare.    Cheesy
