I have no idea how this (or any other) shoe tree gets started. I imagine that someone goes and tosses an old pair of shoes up in the branches of a convenient tree, and slowly other people see it as an interesting use for old footwear. Eventually you get what you see here, a tree with an interesting and varied collection of shoes. I spotted some expensive kicks up there.
Amusingly, there is a "no trespassing" sign stuck to this tree , with a pair of shoes hanging next to it. I suppose the very act of shoeing a tree is trespassing. Or is it littering?
