Shoe tossing

A pair of sneakers has recently appeared suspended from a power line close to our house.   Of course, such sights are not uncommon, but because this is close to us, I investigated the possible reasons on Wikipedia (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoe_tossing).

It seems that there are numerous possible explanations, ranging from the existence of a nearby drug dealing centre through to a way of marking a gang's turf.   Is it a coincidence that the power line is close to a newly-opened coffee shop?   Is there something going on in our vicinity that we're not aware of?

However, I'm hopeful that the explanation is more benign, perhaps the outcome of some adolescent rowdiness!
