There used to be these rather disturbing stuffed animals hung on telephone wires across the Eastside linked to the ice cream truck, Hearts Challenger, but recently they seem to be pleasantly replaced with flower-pot shoefiti. The shoes are not only a friendlier gesture than the warrior-faced animals, but it’s also a kind repurposing of the shoe flinging practice traditionally linked with bullying, turf wars, and drug houses.
Anyone know who’s doing this?
