A shoebase distorts your classic avatar foot, so that it fits a shoe better.  For high heels, it also lifts you up onto your toes.

However, the distortion is not very comely.  Try wearing a shoe base sometime, without any other parts of the shoe.  Your foot distorts into a sort of wedge shape.

Because of this, classic shoes also were made with an "invisiprim", an item that made your foot invisible.  Invisiprims don't work any more, but they were a sort of precursor of alpha masks.

Nowadays, with mesh feet and mesh shoes, you might be able to get away without wearing the shoebase part.  However, I always do, because it affects my height, putting me up on my toes.
