Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, taken on October 20, 2011
The sight of hanging shoes in Louvain-la-Neuve was a curious one for me, and I never found out what it meant, if anything. Someone told me that it was a sign of dedication or commitment to a place, as in relocating to a new city and deciding to settle there. I saw similar displays in other cities, Amsterdam being a notable one where swimsuits were hung. It remains a mystery to be solved one day.
