Pop the shoe in the freezer.. the gum will harden and you can pick it off more easily!

If you don't want to put the whole shoe in the freezer use an ice cube until gum hardens.

If the ice cube doesn't work, I've heard that you can try rubbing alcohol.  You can only use it on the sole though because it could ruin the fabric or leather of the shoe.
