Mystery of the new shoe

A mysterious shoe found by a Vancouver Island river...
Straight off the assembly line...
On a recent trip to Tofino up island, I stopped to take some photos of a scenic river. I discovered this shoe lodged under a rock.

It looked brand out-of-the-box new. The sole, the fabric, the laces, the interior... all of it look sweatshop factory fresh.

I couldn't find a mate. I also couldn't imagine the circumstances under which a brand new shoe would be abandoned by the side of a river.

I have to admit when I first came upon it, I was a little reluctant to pick it up in case there was a foot still in it.
