I imagine the beautiful weather here keeps the attrition rate fairly constant (for the shoe laces, not the students) With over 40,000 students on this campus if even 1% did this the tree would probably die. When the tree has leaves you actually can't see that many.

Okay, can someone elucidate me on this American's seeming obsession or perhpas fascination with decorating their hydro lines, trees and stop light posts with old athletic shoes? What's wrong with Goodwill or Salvation Army?

Maybe they are trying to create rubber trees? Ewwww, just had a mental picture of a tree coated in used prophylactics...

I know in my city, if you see shoes on a power line, it's marking a crack house... maybe the crack dealers camp here?

I graduated from this University and tried to put my shoes on the tree when I graduated-- they fell on the ground. Next new pair of shoes I will try again :)
