A couple weeks ago I found this in Jersey City, in Little India.
In Bangalore, people tie sandals to the bumpers of their cars for good luck. I never figured out exactly why, but I love that shoes, which are associated with walking, are linked with a more modern vehicle of travel. When I was preparing for Test Drive, I also made a tiny sandal and sewed it to the bumper of one of the car/skates, to add one more layer to the play upon feet & cars.
Blurry picture, but best I could find. You can see it at the bottom of the image.
