Weird 'Shoe Island' Mystery Grips Town

A median at an intersection in a small Massachusetts town has become the  unexpected site of a strange mystery known to residents as simply 'shoe  island.' The weirdness reportedly began sometime last year when drivers in the community of Granby  noticed that someone had deposited a pair of old shoes on a patch of  concrete separating a pair of prominent roads in the town. Soon more  discarded footwear began appearing at the spot until it blossomed into a  full blown phenomenon this summer.

A town worker tasked with keeping the roads clean explained that  freshly-discarded footwear appears on the median almost as soon as it  gets cleared and expressed bewilderment by the seemingly unending wave  of shoes. "All I know is we have to pick up a number of shoes," David  Desrosiers said, "sometimes a single shoe, sometimes a pair, no rhyme or  reason." The footwear itself does indeed run the gamut of styles from  ballet flats to hiking boots, leading him to speculate that perhaps  people leaving shoes at the site is just "a trendy thing to do in the  town."
