Meet successful London property developer Daniel Martins. He has everything a man could want: his own booming business, the luxury pad, the expensive sports car...all at the tender age of 25. But should he appreciate this more because he is black? Daniel doesn't think so, as far as he is concerned, his hard work warrants his position. Gone are the days where by default, black men are seen as gun-toting, drug selling, urban music making individuals. Times have changed: the colour of one's skin is trivial. It's the twenty-first century - racism is a thing of the past...isn't it? It's only policemen and shop assistants who constantly remind Daniel of the stereotypes assigned to his race. Surely this shouldn't be enough to send him on a mission to prove everybody wrong? After all, it could cost him his relationship with his best friend, who happens to be white. It could cost him his career and make him become the very stereotype that he longs to refute. Despite all this, Daniel is hell-bent on challenging every prejudice, he is also desperate for his late father's approval. But how dangerous does his obsession with all this become? In the meantime Safra, Daniel's beautiful long-term girlfriend wants more commitment but an obstacle in the form of another woman - who also happens to be white - may lie in the way. Through explorations of love, friendships, paranoia and ignorance, Black Shoes is about a professional man's quest to find his way through the maze of negative stereotypes, and his own personal battle with his identity. Daniel's life is far from a nightmare, but he has a dream...
