The Slab City Tree of Souls (Soles?)

SandsSneakerTree

Two nights ago I was on Twitter and posted a tweet that simply said “The Sneaker Tree.” That was it. No explanation or context. Just those three words.

Within minutes @pkninjaz, Jazmin, a complete stranger from the other side of the country sent me the picture above. It is a picture of the Slab City, California shoe tree known as the Tree of Souls.

There are trees like this all over the country and the world. They’ve existed for decades and no one knows how or why they started. Do you know of a shoe tree somewhere near you? Send me a picture and I’ll post it here, on my Facebook and my Twitter. authorphiltaylor@gmail.com
