Installations of collections are everywhere. I wondered if the owners/artists had collected and hung all of the shoes or if others had added a few here and there. It would be tempting to add an orphan or two when no one was looking. Think of all the abandoned shoes found on city streets - or pairs thrown over a wire. This would give them a new home and purpose.
