Shoe Fence // Rice, California

While we were out West I used the Roadside America app to find lots of neat places to visit. In Rice, California we stumbled upon this shoe fence. I had seen it on the app, didn’t think it looked like it was worth driving out of the way for and forgot about it. As luck (?) would have it, it was right on the road we were cruising down. There was no way we could not pull over to check out this crazy place.

If I’m being honest, I’ve actually always wanted to visit a shoe tree. I don’t know why. They’re kinda gross but something about it is just interesting to me. This shoe fence blows any shoe tree away. There were SO many pairs of shoes. Some folks even left bras, shirts, and potty training seats in lieu of shoes. Jeff and I didn’t really have anything we wanted to contribute but someone had left some permanent markers on the ground so I had Jeff leave our mark on some pipe.

All of the photos above were taken with a pentax k1000 and Fujifilm 35mm Superia X-TRA 400.
