Shoe Fence = Free Footwear!

If you're ever driving south of Dunedin towards Invercargill on the south island of New Zealand,you might come across this strange tourist attraction – theShoe Fence.

This is a massive collection of footwear that has been tied up to a wire fence that stops tourist in their tracks because they want to pull off the main highway to check out this bizarre shoe construction to take heaps of photos and pictures for shoes that have probably seen better days.


At first,I thought this was the fence where Imelda Marcos (wife of former Filipino President Ferdinand Marcos,see morehere)她只穿过一次鞋就寄了大量的鞋。


But It's A Shoe Fence with a Zap!

你必须小心——注意在Shoe Fence(see above photo).  So if you're trying to place a worn out pair of Dunlop Volleys on there,you might receive a large-ish zap if you don't know what you are doing.

But apparently,bizarre fence collections like this are not uncommon in New Zealand.

There is a bra fence at a town called Middlemarch which is not that far away,and who knows what else.

Feel free to add your 2 bob worth if you know of any other bizarre fence collections that might be floating around the world!

So if you're after a shoe bargain,这是要参观的栅栏。这是我所说的全景照片,“伊梅尔达-马科斯围栏”。.


不知何故,I don't think they followed instructions fromThe Fence Bible: How to plan,安装,and build fences and gates to meet every home style and property need,不管你的院子有多大。!

如果你从德克萨斯州亨特市南部的克尔维尔驱车前往德克萨斯州的山区,你会遇到一道装饰着的栅栏,yes of course,cowboy boots.turned heel side up on each of the fence post streching a good mile around the is ahard place to shoot and get the whole picture but it is a colorful site.洛格拉斯说,这是从几年前的一次小道骑行开始的,人们都离开了他们的靴子,宣布小道的结束。cactus billd from the great state of texas..and thanx for sharing the go fasties on the fence too cool!!现在我在哪里能找到胸罩围栏呢?????;)

If I was a tourist visiting Waihola,I wouldn't wanna go near those shoes… Come'on now,how smelly can they be?

    Sorry,I didn't conduct a smell test when I visited!

This would be a very strange thing to see while travelling the country.I wonder if any backpackers have actually tried to steal some shoes in the past,would be amusing to tell someone you got your shoes of a fence in the middle of New Zealand!

I was also wondering if as a visitor you could add to the collection by donating an old pair of trainers.Then you could return a few years later to see if they are still there!

Any pictures of the Bra fence?Would like to see that.

耶普it like chewing gum wall in Seattle as somebody already mentioned,别让我们在栅栏上做嗅觉测试…

Love the post.Hope hiking shoes should guide someone there.


This is definitely strange.I wonder if the place is smelly from all those shoes.

    I was visiting NZ in 2000 and while driving to Mt.库克,我朋友说,"we are going to stop and look at the shoes." I thought he needed new walking shoes.不,我们停下来看了看一排排排着鞋子的栅栏。I don't recall that it smelled at all.I have a great picture of me standing near it.
