The curse of the hanging shoes…

I seriously have no clue why hanging your shoes over power lines makes a statement, but hey I like the idea. Heck, I subscribe to it.

So, what gives? The shoes aren’t just thrown over the lines, they’re nicely laced up as well. How the hell?

Fad, sub-culture, inner-city shoe rant or just another over the top artistic slant?

    It seems to be a world-wide phenomenon. I suspect aliens from outer space.

    It means drugs can be bought at the house opposite. Usually marijuana.

    The hanging shoes appeared in “Wag the Dog” movie (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120885/). This might be the origin.

    I was about to say but Pete beat me to it…. that’s a lot of shoes close together… 3 spots all nearby to buy drugs… nice.
