Hello. So, I know that I already have a few too many tabs going on, but I have been meaning to post this. I have been cataloging the massive number of shoes I have seen alongside the road at various points throughout my trip. I was only able to capture about one half of the shoes I actually saw, and I am sure I passed by others. I have seen many articles of clothing, but it is the shoes that really tickle me.

What is going on inside a vehicle that one shoe makes its way to the road? Are all the stories very similar, such as someone gets in a fight with someone else and awkwardly throws a shoe at the other person in the car and it flies out the window? Or does it vary by situation – sometimes it is a pair of siblings teasing one another and a shoe gets sacrificed? Why is it (almost) always only the one shoe and not a pair? Have all these people just purchased the shoes in a store and they only have one foot to use a shoe on, so they throw the other one out?

PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IS IT? I want to know.

If anyone does a West to East Coast bicycle tour, please capture the shoes on the other side of the road. Maybe all the pairs to mine will be discovered.

    Since I’ve also seen underwear, bras, boxers, shirts, pants, and everything else, I imagined that there was some high speed sex going on and in the rush, a item or two wound up on the side of the road.

      This has very much been on my mind as a likely possibility as well. It was my first assumption until I started to see more kid-sized shoes.
