Morrissey listed "Shoes" in his "Singles To Be Cremated With" (NME, 1989) and also used it pre-concert intermissions.

Johnny Marr was asked about "Shoes" in thestranger.com (2013):

I'm aware that the music for the Smiths song "A Rush and a Push and the Land Is Ours" was borrowed from a song called "Shoes," by Reparata. How were you introduced to that song? It was inspired by that, yeah—the bulk of that tune I kind of remembered from being a kid while it was on the English charts. I liked the electric piano—it stuck in my subconscious. It's funny how these things come out.
