Are your shoes human beings? If not, then no.

Even if not human, the English translation of love would be correct. As it is a common expression. The answer is not in French, it is in English, where this would be a perfectly acceptable translation.

You can still love an inanimate object, including an item of clothing. For example, a woman might say to a friend, "I LOVE your new dress"! In such a sentence, she is certainly not expressing romantic attraction for the dress, just expressing a deep admiration for it. Someone who is into Ferraris might say "I love Ferraris". Again, not in the sense of having a romantic or sexual attraction to Ferraris (though there are probably people weird enough?), but just being really enthusiastic about them.

So beyond any shadow of a doubt, "love" as well as "like" should be accepted here.

I think there should be a mistype button as autocorrect is quite annoying

"You love your little shoes" would be a correct English interpretation of this would it not?

That's what I put and was marked wrong. Although maybe "love" would tend to be conveyed more by "Vous aimez bien etc.". Nevertheless, I have reported it as I think it should be accepted.

Change your keyboard settings so you can swip right or left and alternate between engilsh and french keyboards on your phone. It is a life savor and it's fun.

You like your tiny shoes. (evaluated WRONG)

(tiny = small. Maybe implement some common synonyms? Just a thought)

Tiny in French would be "minuscule" or "tout petit". It conveys a sense of smallness that goes beyond "little", in the same way that "huge" or "enormous" is a step up from "big". It is therefore not an exact synonym (whereas "little" and "small" are). So sorry, but I think that one was fair enough.

What's the difference between chausures and chaussures apart from a 'typo'?
