Depiction in Equestria Girls

In Rainbow Rocks, Shoeshine appears as one of many ponies seen in the establishing shot of Ponyville.
In Friendship Games, Shoeshine appears outside Ponyville looking shocked when Midnight Sparkle opens one of the dimensional rifts to Equestria.
In Spring Breakdown, Shoeshine is one of many ponies seen in the establishing shot of Ponyville.
Depiction in My Little Pony The Movie
Shoeshine appears in My Little Pony The Movie during We Got This Together, Songbird Serenade's arrival, and Rainbow with a new—Apple Honey/Gala Appleby/S01E16 Unnamed Pegasus Mare #1/S04E22 Unnamed Earth Mare #18/S04E22 Unnamed Earth Mare #20/S04E22 Unnamed Earth Mare #21—hairstyle.
A glitter mini-figure toy with Shoeshine's likeness was released in May 2012 as part of the fourth wave of mystery packs. The toy uses the Applejack mold but features Shoeshine's base color, eye color, and cutie mark. Her name comes from the collector card accompanying the toy. The European collector card describes Shoeshine as "so understanding". The U.S. collector card has a longer description and reads, "SHOESHINE is understanding and listens to her friends!"
A second Shoeshine mini-figure toy and collector card pair was released in November 2012 as part of the sixth wave of mystery packs. The U.S. collector card uses the same description as the previous U.S. collector card.
A third Shoeshine mini-figure toy and collector card pair was released in November 2013 as part of the ninth wave of mystery packs. The U.S. collector card uses the same description as the previous two U.S. collector cards.
A fifth mini-figure toy of Shoeshine has been leaked.
Shoeshine also appears on the RI cover for My Little Pony: The Movie Prequel issue 3.
