Oohh... great pic!! Thanks! :))
Thank you!
Actually - I was searching for an article which mentioned something I had read years ago...
The links I added below seem to only mention the recent stories...

What I had read - and I don't know if it true at all, is that:
Marcel Duchamp or somebody famous in the Dadaist movement had started throwing shoes... like an anti war symbol?
I think it does kinda fit the movement.

Has anybody heard of something like this?


I've heard it was originally related to drugs. If a house had a pair of shoes hanging over it, drugs were available there. I'm not 100% sure though.
Now it's because a cultural symbol without much meaning, I believe.


What Raffy said!
How did I miss this color? -_-
I didn't know that Marcel Duchamp is supposed to have instigated this - but I can tell you that you see the shoes over the wires all throughout the suburbs of Sydney :P There is an urban myth that if you see shoes over the wires like this - then close by you can buy drugs. That's definitely a myth as far as I know!
