Bakersfield Shoe house for sale

The Shoe House in Bakersfield, CA is for sale. Remnants of Deschwanden's Shoe Repair, the last business that inhabited the shoe nearly a decade ago, can still be spied through the windows. The Deschwanden family is selling the shoe at Chester Avenue and 10th Street, and two adjacent homes. The shoe has been a Bakersfield fixture since it first appeared in 1947 (same year as the first flying saucer sightings over the US!). It is 20 feet tall and 30 feet long. The price? For the shoe and a small adjacent house, the owners are asking for $99,000.
