Shoefiti in Camden Town gets the boot

trainersFANS of shoe-throwing art, look away now. The shoefiti display in Buck Street Camden Town, a row of trainers hanging from a wire in Buck Street (right) has disappeared.

Shoefiti, we learned last year, is a real word with its own Wiki entry, although while it is a form of art for some, others say it is used to mark the taken territory of local gangs. A nearby tattoo artist said as the New Journal investigated further: “Some say it’s drug dealers. I don’t know. I’ve seen tourists throwing their own trainers up there.”
