Shoe Tree

As you cross the Washington Ave between the East Bank and West Bank of The of you'll come across a with some odd like growths in it.

Don't know why they get tossed there (when you graduate, lose your virginity . . ?)

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.

gotta love shoes, shoes and shoes

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?

EvilGentleman: 21st Mar 2006 - 02:07 GMT

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

elaine: 21st Mar 2006 - 09:34 GMT

i got this one for ya.

jeeff: 23rd Mar 2006 - 02:11 GMT

i really like that first one. the lighting is perfect and it's a good composition of a difficult subject.

Boomer: I love the shoe tree.

fred: shoes on power lines = someone died.

somehow, i missed this post ... nice find!

CapnCaveman: 8th Dec 2007 - 05:12 GMT

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?

NV dan: 19th Sep 2008 - 06:44 GMT

You should see the one on Highway 50, east of Fallon, NV

Hydro lines: 20th Sep 2008 - 04:04 GMT

lol hydro lines(power lines), we throw the shoes up cause we can, why give em to some bum that should get a job, down with enablers!

SEB: 7th Apr 2010 - 16:26 GMT

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 :)
