How do they get here? Who did they belong to? And why is there usually only one of them? Weirdly every time I go on a trip in the Saudi desert I always find single shoes! Mostly it’s obvious why they’ve been abandoned as they’re usually in a pretty bad way and have become unwearable….but rarely a pair. I can’t believe it’s only one-legged people who go in the desert and leave their shoes behind. Here are photos of Thursdays collection of ‘finds’ – an eclectic mix to be sure- and not the kind of footwear I’d be inclined to choose to wear in the sandy desert.
