FIG. 1 is a front perspective view of a shoe showing my new design;

FIG. 2 is a side view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a rear perspective view thereof.

The dot-dash lines immediately adjacent to the shaded area represent unclaimed boundaries of the design. These boundaries do not exist in reality in the article embodying the design. It is understood that the claimed design extends to these boundaries but does not include the boundaries. The evenly spaced broken lines showing the remainder of the shoe are for environmental purposes only and form no part of the claimed design.
