"Red Shoe Diaries" is an erotic and drama series that aired on the American cable television network Showtime from 1992 to 1999 and distributed by Playboy Entertainment overseas. Most episodes were directed by either Zalman King, Rafael Eisenman or both.


The episodes always open with a quick montage of a newspaper personals section ad under 'Red Shoes' seeking women to mail in their personal diaries with stories of love, passion and/or betrayal.' The presenter and Jake Winters (David Duchovny) is then shown walking on desolate train tracks with his dog Stella. He begins reading a letter from his post office box out loud that begins with "Dear red shoes..."

Storylines usually have a thin plot revolving around some intrigue and the sexual awakening of a girl or woman who often also narrates. Well photographed, artful, sensuous love scenes with nudity as well as sultry, moody music are characteristic of most episodes. There is no story arc or characters connecting the different stories other than Jake Winters introducing each episode.

"Red Shoe" movies

The series led to several "Red Shoe Diaries" movies, including one television movie released in 1992. Nineteen other direct to video "Red Shoe" movies were also released throughout and after the series' run. [cite web|url=|title=List of "Red Shoe Diaries" films||accessdate=2008-09-07]
