this is the best one I have seen....I really hope it's not an art installation....I would love it to be 'real'....

On the "Lang Wang" (A70) between Balerno and Carnwath. I am pretty sure it is "real".

the only thing that makes me think it's art is that a lot of the shoes look too good to throw away.....

If it is ART it is unsigned and without context or credit...

We have a shoe tree in Newcastle, it's for students that have finished their course and putting shoes on the tree is a sort of symbol that you've walked that part of the path in Newcastle. I like it anyway!
