All my life,I have noticed on the shoulder of highways everywhere,a single shoe laying there.Lots of them.
Where are all the one shoed people?
I'm sure I'm not the first to ask this question,but I have never heard an answer to this.Any help in answering is appreciated.

For a year or so, we had someone discarding women's shoes along the roadsides. Always a dress shoe with high heels, often discarded in pairs. Usually slightly worn. I picked up and dealt with dozens of them. I was sure gunning for that guy. All I can figure is that he had access to discarded shoes from some goodwill store or something like that.

Peanut knows first hand how that lone shoe ends up on the side of the road.

D just reminded me of my own carelessness.

We were in Colorado on our honeymoon. We spent a week with our motorcycle crusing through the Rockies. We put the bike in the trailer and towed it behind us on the way out.

After a long day of riding and enjoying hot sulpher springs and cool freezing mountain air (in July - 85 degrees at the bottom - 30 degrees at the top).

We decided to go for dinner. I took my boots off and slipped on some sandles. I left my shoes on the car. We drove away and the owners of the place we were staying at in Breckenridge came running after us. One shoe fell off in the parking lot. The other hung on for dear life for a mile and finally gave way.

We got back from dinner and the owners brought me one shoe. They said they tried to flag us down but they just watched us drive away.

We spent the next hour trying to find the rogue shoe. We did and the happy pair are back together.

Mark, i to have been seeing the one shoe on the road,my way of thinking the kid/kids threw it out without the parents knowledge. James

Maybe the single shoe has something to do with the orphaned sock in my drawer.

Speaking of shoes, every now and then I see a pair of shoes, tied together by the laces, hanging from a power line. At what point during the day does a person decide to take their shoes off, tie them together, and toss them up until the stay?

Maybe it's same what we used to do when I was a kid in Amsterdam.. we would (try to ) throw used bicycle tires over lampposts.. Some of them had like 10, 15 tires laying on the floor..
Was a nice game :-)
