Use an underlay! Find an image of a good “base shoe” (ie one similar in proportion and possibly overall shape) and sketch your design over it.

I always find footwear hard to sketch initially. Shoes are very dynamic objects with a very strong sense of direction, though due to their organic, flowing form often lack reference points which would enable you get the perspective correct.

Look under the tutorials section, then under proportions.

And your one stop shop for shoe info:
