It's a well-detailed shot, but it's not well lit - unless you wanted all of that shaded fall-off in the background. In which case, 'yay - you did it'. It just looks untidy or a bit lazy, as though you were shooting footwear because you had new shoes, not because you wanted to take a photograph. Nice shoes, at least.

While it's true that the front shoe is better lit (more evenly lit) than the one supporting it, the emphasis is firmly on the leading foot...

I wish I thought to take pictures of new stuff - though this may lead me to take a few shots of old shoes...

Thanks for the comments Robert/John, So, I had a new pair of shoes & an hour to spare. I thought I'd 'have a go' with a single light. I was happy as a 1st attempt but will work a little harder to get the more even lighting next time. Thanks again for the feedback & guidance.
