Where do those single shoes you see lying on the side of the road come from?
This question was listed in the “unanswerable” section in a book I got years ago. Ever since, I’ve noticed all the lone shoes on the roadside and wondered where they all come from.
The easiest answer is that they fell out of the back of a pickup, but there seem to be too many shoes to make that a satisfactory answer. I’m sure some do.. but I don’t feel like that’s it.
People throwing them out of windows? Falling out of cars? People undressing on the side of the road? Why do you think there are so many lone shoes peppering our roadsides?
