Worn soles


Shoes dangling from overhead wires are a common sight on the hardscrabble streets of Philadelphia, but this wire  with 10 pairs is bearing more than the average load.  The shoe-tossing ritual has many explanations — including that youngsters toss them up when they replaced their “bobos” with brand-name sneakers.  These shoes were hanging over Mifflin Street at about 16th Street.
