The wooden shoes are inside the small candy shop behind the large mailbox. You can't see them from outside.

World's Largest Wooden Shoes

At over 11 feet long, these have been certified by Guinness World Records as the World's Largest. On the shoe is a "Do Not Get in the Shoes" sign, perhaps to keep visitors away from the money tossed into the shoes and intended to go to charity. All of the Casey attractions are fabricated from recycled, reclaimed, and repurposed raw materials by the Jim Bolin Workshop. The Bolin Family is "of very strong faith" and has conspicuously emblazoned each of their creations with a verse from the Bible. Nothing against the Word, but it got to be a bit much.
