    JLo foot apparel


    Bonus points for emergency vehicle on call (or maybe just stopped for dinner) in the shot! :rofl

    Can you tell us a little bit about this scene?
    It's obviously in the USA somewhere, from the route number sign behind the driver's head...

    In fact, I reckon I know where that is! It's right next to the Amtrak station!

    Which would put this scene here just around the corner in Main Street?

    And I swear I've never been to Oklahoma!
    :D

    For some reason at first I thought you were somewhere near Washington DC. The cowgirl boot should have been a clue!


    Are we looking for an enormous cowgirl boot, which might be a wee bit difficult down here in the southern hemisphere, or will either A) an enormous boot or B) a more modest JLo style boot, say in a shop window, do the job? Do I need to start researching JLo's costumes to see what other shoes she wears? :evil

    Would a Kylie boot do the job?
    (What do you mean, "Kylie who?")

    Cool bike btw, and just the right colour scheme too.
    Funny looking little petrol tank and rear rack though. :norton

    I'm thinking if I can get my bike near it, this Kylie statue in Melbourne's docklands might meet the spirit, but definitely not the letter of this tag?

    Mind you, she's got her red shoes on.

    How does that boot relate to Jlo? Or is the tag any large foot apparel?

    JLo = big ass. :rofl I had no idea this would cause confusion!

    Tag does not have to be a boot but any foot apparel. Ginormous (JLo) foot apparel. :D

    So the owner of this trike wouldn't even have to leave home?

    OK, so your big shoe didn't have wheels!

    I live in a big city, which I know pretty well from driving cabs, but this big shoe theme has me beaten. I'm down to wondering if there is a kindegarten somewhere with a shoe in their yard (for an old lady with too many children to live in).

    I generally try to pick a theme you can't find by just googling or looking in the yellow pages; you've certainly succeeded!

    Seems there are a pair of red stiletto trikes (makes sense), one with drum brakes,

    the other with disk brakes and a slightly different profile at the top, above the heel.

    They are advertising props belonging to a shoe retailer called Marshalls.


    So, has anyone got any leads on big shoes?

    That's a nice one. Better pic than I was going to get this afternoon. Mine sits on top of the planetarium on UNC Campus and hardly as good a representation as this one.

    A non-chain fast food place. Bonus points if, like this one, it either was or is going to be on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

    I was eating fish and chips here in Aus just as you posted this, but my bike is on a trailer for tomorrows ride, so we drove a car to get there. Looking at the original tag, it reminded me how few "independent" take away places like you'd see in Australia I remember around Cincinnati, though I did find a souvlaki place.
