Footwear hanging from an overhead wire by the laces. The laces of the shoes are tied together, then lobbed up to the wire(s) so that the shoes hang
and dangle. Supposedly signals a location where drugs
can be purchased; also symbolizes pointlessness i.e. there is no good reason for the object (shoes) being there. Can be found near schools, and in poor
areas and tourist
"Once in awhile I'll spot shoes on a wire and it sparks my curiosity
and I'll chuckle."
"Let's play the shoes on a wire game
. First one to get the shoes to hang wins."
