Hi

Could you please tell me which one of these sounds most natural? Any other suggestions please?

  1. My new shoes broke so unexpectedly at the party.
  2. My new shoes split so unexpectedly at the party.
  3. My new shoes tore up so unexpectedly at the party.
  4. My new shoes opened up so unexpectedly at the party.

Thanks,

Tom

None are reasonable. Shoes do not break; they wear out.

The heel on my new shoes broke. (High heels)

My new shoes fell apart. (The stitching came loose - running shoes..)

The heel on my new shoes fell off.
