Sneakers, originally uploaded by Ms. Baboo.

My whole life, I have always seen sneakers hanging from wires overhead. I never understood why people do this to their sneakers. Don't they need them?


  1. the rumour I have heard is that once upon a time, it marked drug territories. Of course like any inner city culture object, it was co opted by the masses of teenagers with more time on their hands then they know what to do with. I think now its just to see IF they can do it.
    great shot.
