Hapa watu hufly home, unaskia hata @wakanya ni rancher nevada.


uliza @Nefertities …i used to hear that they were for the “homies” who have been killed on the streets. but i think that was just an urban legend. I think guys were just being assholes.

@nairobilay I just googled it and it seems it has very many meanings depending on who does it. Its a gesture familiar to gang members, soldiers, kids and hey, its even evolved into a sport ¯_(ツ)_/¯

yep…as for US reasons differ from hood to hood…what about ile njumu ya mtoi huanikwa ndani ya mat za kutoka mtaani? This practice has been there for a very long time hata nikiwa mtoi but no one ever asked…


Mothers with young kids usually drop the shoes as they manoeuvre their way in a packed matatu. When the conductors later collect them, they hang them on the handrails just in case the mothers come looking for them.

thats a better xplanation

there’s a tree in a winding desert road in US must be Nevada full of shoes hanging from branches
