You may have heard that last Friday morning thousands of used sneakers were dumped along the Palmetto Expressway, delaying  traffic for hours while crews were forced to clean up the kicks.

With no one stepping forth to claim the shoes and no signs of an accident,  rumors are afloat that they were dispensed in protest of Miami’s car culture.

Officials are now looking for a charity that might accept thousands of sneakers. If you have a suggestion, let the Miami State Police know.

Fact or fiction?

We can’t be sure, but let us all work towards a more walkable 2009.

    If this weren’t Miami, I might believe that the shoes were dumped in protest and not a accidental dump’n’run.
