Shoe and shoes

"Ben bu tip ayakkabı seviyorum" I lıke thıs type of shoe. (The program offers only "shoe"). How accurate is the use of the "shoe" in this case in the singular? (English isn't my native language)..

If you are referring to the English, 'shoe' is correct and 'shoes' would be incorrect. The same would be true if any other noun were substituted for shoe'.

You can say "I like this type of shoe" or "I like these types of shoes." This is the only way to say this in English :)
