This shoe stands in front of a thrift and collectible store. This store has been in business since the 1960s. Too much stuff to look at! It's packed.

This store looks awesome. I definitely wished I wouldn't have driven by before they opened.

While you are visiting the Giant Arrow in Quanah, don't miss the giant high-top tennis shoe. It's left when heading north on Hwy 287.

[Evans, 03/13/2013]

The shoe appears to be part of a larger collection of folk art and bric-a-brac, displayed outside an antique mini-flea-market. These kinds of displays are often temporary, but anyone who puts out a giant sneaker probably has more good stuff to display.
