Yes, this collection of images is of found footwear! Over the years I have come across many shoes and wondered how in the world did this get in the river? There are just so many of them that I see in the park it makes me scratch my head a bit. Since most of them appear not to be worn out…I muse, wouldn’t you miss one of your shoes if you misplaced it? Granted, there are some ugly styles represented here. Perhaps that can act as a partial answer as to “why?” Anyway, this is just a few of the shoes I have found over the last few months. I’ll add and subtract more as the mood hits me and I discover them.
It appears we have a “theme” going here…brown leather sandals. Here are a few more to meditate upon.
I like the little plants growing in this one!
I did an earlier post (Magic in the Air) and used this hiking boot as a prop.
This one is a bit of a ringer! I think it’s a plastic boot off of a Santa decoration. Over the years, I have even found small Barbie doll shoes.
What wonderful color and such a high fashion statement!
One of a million athletic shoes I’ve seen at the river and only outnumbered by the billion flip flops I have tripped across.
Finding flip flops makes sense to me because this seems more like the shoe one would wear visiting the beach to go swimming etc…
Who doesn’t love football and Sponge Bob flip flops? Just a few of the many to choose from. Here’s just one day’s collection assembled on one small stretch of the park on an early spring day of this year. I used some of these and more in one of my earliest posts (Lost a Flip Flop Lately?).
Now that I have this category started, I’ll try to update it with the latest styles and models. The Ohio River is generous and I’ll be sure to keep my eyes and nose out for more.
