If she had worn different shoes, I would probably get up later tomorrow.

Sorry for quoting Rebecca Black's Friday in the title, but I hope you forgive me - it's 2:15 am... and friday!

She - another student?

Shoes she was wearing - dress shoes? Sandals? Flip-flops? Slippers? High heels? Platform shoes? Ballet shoes? Running shoes? Cleats? Ice skates? Boots? Uggs (aka UGHs)?

Was something torn on the shoes? Did the sole come off? Did the heel break off?

Were the shoes too small for her? Too large?

Did she borrow them for some reason? And she has to give them back earlier today? Or get her own pair?

Were they new shoes? Did she get a blister walking in them? And you have to get something to treat it with?

Were the shoes too impractical for her to do something? If so, is it something she has already done? Or something she's still going to do?

You said they were boots... Was it too warm for her to wear boots? Or was she planning to wear pants/a skirt/a dress that doesn't go along well with boots?

she didn't borrow them but they didn't belong to her? had she stolen them? did she have to go back to pay?

had she changed into them and left another pair of shoes somewhere?

she didn't borrow them but they didn't belong to her? huh? Did I say that? If so, sorry for the confusion... Oh I see: She borrowed shoes, but not the one Potato was referring to, I think. had she stolen them? did she have to go back to pay? no to both

had she changed into them and left another pair of shoes somewhere? into which shoes? and see next answer

ooh! did you have to get up early yes because she was coming back to your place no to pick up her shoes? yes

Were they your shoes? yes!

RECAP and hopefully a clarification about which shoes are which:
I had to get up earlier today because a student, H/youngA/F, wanted to pick up her shoes - boots with heels. My shoes are relevant as well.
If she had worn different shoes altogether, the whole thing wouldn't have happened.

Just to check, the shoes she is picking up are your shoes?
Are there two relevant pairs of shoes here? More?
Are both pairs yours?
One pair yours and one pair hers?
Are both boots? Relevant?

So there is pair 1 - which are yours and relvant?
Pair 2 - which are hers and she is picking up?
And pair 3 - which she could have worn, also hers?

Did you and she meet up at some point the day before?
And she was wearing Pair 2?
But for a yet-to-be-determined reason she changed shoes?
Into Pair 1?

Pair 2 - which are hers and she is picking up? yes (or no, because she didn't -.-)
And pair 3 - which she could have worn, also hers? yes

Did you and she meet up at some point the day before? YES!
And she was wearing Pair 2? yes!
But for a yet-to-be-determined reason she changed shoes? and a third yes, very OTRT
Into Pair 1? yes!

Was she wearing your shoes? yes!

Why did she change into my shoes? And why did I have to get up earlier in order to swap shoes again?

Update on the RECAP:
I had to get up earlier on Friday because a student, H/youngA/F, wanted to pick up her shoes - high heeled boots. The night before, we had swapped shoes because she wanted to appear less tall. Why exactly is not important.
Why did I have to get up earlier?

********SPOILER********
Last Thursday, my friend and I were at a party. She was wearing high-heeled boots and I was wearing sneakers. We were standing most of the time and she started feeling uncomfortable because she was taller than everyone else, even the guys, so that she asked me if we could swap shoes.
We agreed on swapping them back at college the next day. Our only class on Fridays is a tutorial where attendance is not compulsory, but I usually go there. However, I was home late from the party and I would probably have skipped that class - but I wanted my shoes back so that I got up early.

Nice work everyone, and thanks for the final question, Potato (:
