A fence with a difference


We don't know how or when this tradition started but people stop and hang their old footwear (shoes, sneakers, gumboots, boots, jandals), on this fence. We pass it often on our way south but yesterday we stopped and took some photo's. I've been wanting to take some pics for years but never got around to it. One of the reasons was that I thought it was a private drive but no, it is a side road down to the lake so no problem. I've always thought it was a bit of fun and others seem to think so too. I hope you enjoy my 'fence with a difference'.

                            





Until next time,
have a good week,

  5. It is strange to see all the shoes hanging on the fence! I wonder if any one would borrow a pair! Would the cows mind? Cute photos!

  9. That is so cool.
    I've heard of people throwing their shoes on tree branches. I tried to start one where I used to live but people kept taking them down.

  15. WOW! That's a ton of footwear! We have a tree near us that's treated in the same way but I think your fence has way more footwear!!

  18. This is wild...there is a tree near here with a lot of shoes in it, but it does not hold a candle to this.
