Between 2007 and 2016, 17 disembodied feet - still wearing shoes - have washed ashore between Washington and British Columbia. What's behind the sudden influx of Vancouver's mystery feet?

The Engrossing Mystery of Shoefiti

There's a part in the movie Big Fish where the protagonist, Edward Bloom, loses his shoes to a girl named Jenny Hill. Jenny doesn't want Edward to leave the subtly mythical town of Spectre and indoctrinates him as per the town custom: tying the laces of one's pair of shoes and throwing them over a telephone wire, to dangle out of reach. The logic, ethereal as it is, goes that without one's shoes, one can no longer travel and might as well settle down.
