Seen these shoes hanging from a telephone wire in a Waterloo neighborhood Thursday and makes me wonder:

I looked online, most explanations involve bored kids or drunks. There was mention about this being done to signify a crack house or gang killing but these explanations were attributed to "urban legend". Only the shoe thrower knows....
