Have you seen my Mary-Janes?

It keeps happening, and I have never seen it elsewhere other than in Sydney, or maybe this is the fist place I noticed it?

Another pair of abandoned shoes, discovered on my way home in the underpass at Central Station.

I’ve kept the colour balance untouched as the eerie green tinge of the fluorescent lights helps convey the strangeness of the situation. A plain pair of office shoes, possibly even bought from Office, slightly scuffed but still very usable, with a little care and attention, tidily tucked to the side of the passageway.

Is this a particularly Australian thing or are people often abandoning their perfectly usable footwear in the streets the world over?
