The colour of the shoes in the modern day moments of the film are a purplish pink, however during the moments where it was presumably the Japanese occupation of Korea at that time, the shoes are a reddish pink, perhaps due to the fact that the shoes have been worn for a very long period of time.

After Taesoo, who is covered in thick makeup and wears a black top and white tutu while dancing and looking at her reflection in the mirror, part of the beginning of the credits show. However before they get past the second actor in the cast list, the screen shakes and the text turns red as if there is a technical problem, before it reverts to a scene of people walking in the park. The pink shoes can be seen again in the park, and a girl with roller blades leans down to pick them up. After her hand covers the camera, the credits roll normally. See more »
Yeah sure they are pink shoes but its a metaphor. They are "red" because of all the blood and gore and stuff. Get it. Anyway this movie is excellent. It is definitely not what i expected. It is surprisingly emotional, sad and beautiful. There is lots if disgusting blood and gore thats for sure and its the goriest part in the first subway scene. This movie also has an interesting story line based in the hans Christian anderson tale "the red shoes". It also has the first sex scene sort of thing i have ever seen in an Asian film. It will haunt my dreams forever. It has fights between the mother and the 5 year old daughter which makes you just want to scream at the screen STOP. because it is such good acting. It is so horrible in a good way that they would hurt and kill each others family just to have the shoes.
