Is "my" implied here?

    Yes. Unlike English, in Russian we usually don’t use posessive pronouns if they’re obvious, e.g. Я чи́щу зу́бы. 'I'm brushing my teeth'.

    Yes, this is very common with body parts and relatives.

    should it be 'some shoes' or just 'shoes'

    Both should be acceptable.

    Anyone else hear в сестры in the sound here?

    No it sounds to me like the в at the end of обувь is blended with для, as in обу вдля. But it's unclear and rushed.
