But the female admirer wants to offer the One Direction star an apology, she tells Celebuzz exclusively.
“I threw my shoe and I aimed for the stage, but I accidentally hit Harry! I really want to apologize to him and meet him,” said Jade Anderson, who felt so bad, she shed a few tears after getting back her now-infamous blue Van.
The 14-year-old even tells us she wishes she’d thrown something else at Styles. Said Anderson: “I was going to throw a piece of underwear, but my friends said no!”
The shoe-stopping moment occurred at a concert in Scotland on Feb. 26. After Anderson’s missive struck 19-year-old Styles in the groin, the pop star fell to the floor.
“I threw it because I wanted them to touch something belonging to me,” Anderson explained. “I didn’t mean to hurt him.”
She later took to Twitter and came clean about the incident, tweeting:
@harry_styles im the one that threw my shoe at you, i never meant to hurt you 🙁

But security teams at the concert hadn’t been so sure, quickly ejecting Anderson from the venue.
“After I had done it, the security caught me and took me out, then gave me trouble,” she said. “Security just told me that I could have really hurt him and never do it again.”
Luckily for her, Styles took the incident in stride, even doing some stretches with a smile. And Anderson soon regained entry into the concert — thanks to a pair of very special guys.
“Harry and Niall [Horan] asked for me to come back in,” she said. “They told the whole audience! I got back in, and Niall then gave me both of my shoes back.”
As for those infamous sneakers?
“I won’t wear them,” Anderson said. “I’ll treasure them.”
