who put those kicks up there?


It's popularly believed that tennis shoes hanging from utility wires designate "gang territory" or a location to buy street drugs, but that theory fails to account for the hefty percentage of shoes dangling over non-gang neighborhoods and quiet streets in rural towns where there's little or no gang and drug activity to be found. Another folk belief holds that teenage boys who've just "scored" for the first time (i.e., lost their virginity) heave an old pair of sneakers over a power line to proclaim their conquest to the world.
