In the Grimms' Cinderella, Cinderella loses her gold slipper and so when the prince goes to Cinderella's house the stepsisters cut off their toes and heels to fit on the slipper.
in Yeh-Shen the king leaves the slipper in his kingdom and watches who tries it on to see if it fits.

In the Grimms' Cinderella, Cinderella and the prince met and danced until midnight. And when anyone asked Cinderella to dance the prince said, "This is my partner."
