"The girl changes the shoes."

Translation:La ragazza cambia le scarpe.

Should the translation be "La ragazza si cambia le scarpe"? I'm pretty sure the si is necessary here.

She might be changing the shoes on display in a shop.

Yup. I think it's a question of whether you want to change your shoes (cambiarsi) or whether you are a cobbler and want to change the shoes themselves (cambiare). http://www.wordreference.com/iten/cambiare
