The rationale behind shoe tossing (and yes, this has a name and it's own Wikipedia page) is one that I've never understood. There are many theories: is it a form a bullying? A practical joke? A way to mark gang territory? Or perhaps someone thought "Hey, I bet an urban photographer will walk past this spot and think this is an interesting juxtaposition with the Sears Tower?" For lack of more evidence, I'm going with the latter.
