hey, we have this tradition at our home too.. never thought of it as a mock shoe though :-)
I love this tradition because it makes my feet look beautiful...every year during pooja at home, i am given the task of doing this 'mock shoe' for all the ladies visiting. First turmeric is applied, then 'nalangu' is applied...we also paint the toes unlike shown in the picture here...turmeric has antiseptic properties so your feet gets natural treatment..nalangu has "chunambu" in it which again heals cracks in feet...And the perfume which stays behind in my hand after all the work is done is heavenly!!!
cute! Happy Diwali greetings to you and your family as well Art :)
We have this also, but only during sumangali prarthanai and such. Is this for Deepavali? Advance Deepavali wishes to you and your family Art.

We too had this "nalangu" thing daubed on our foot early morning on Deepavali day "long long ago" :-) Wishing you, Navy and your adorable kids a very happy Deepavali.
