A pair of magical shoes once belonging to the Wicked Witch of the East. Dorothy took them from the Wicked Witch of the East when her house fell on the witch and killed her. Dorothy wears them during her first adventures through the Land of Oz. The Wicked Witch of the West tries to get them back by using the Winged Monkeys to capture Dorothy, but is melted down when Dorothy throws a bucket of water on her. Dorothy uses them at the end of the first adventure to return home to Kansas by clapping the heels together three times and saying, "Take me home to Aunt Em." The shoes are lost forever when they fall off of Dorothy's feet as she flys over the desert on the way back to Kansas.
