    very strange... that shoe is a unique color, someone will hopefully remember it. do they think this person was dismembered, or disarticulated in the water?

    Nice shoes, they have been popular over here for many years. Could be male or female that wore them

    It has been said Heathers favorite color is teal but I doubt she would wear a size 9.

    I was going to ask, "Heather who" but then Heather Elvis quickly came to mind.
    From the linked article, kind of crazy it was siting on the dock for 6 days. Odd.
    This is the beautiful downtown "city marina". As you drive highway 17, and cross over the bridges you can see the huge yachts or sailboats of the wealthy.

    SC - Severed Foot Found at Charleston City Marina

    My apologies if this has been posted elsewhere already.

    "The Charleston Police Department is working to connect the dots between a severed foot inside a shoe at the Charleston City Marina and the person to which it belongs."

    Just my opinion... and trust me, I do have one.

    Yep, idk if it's the same shoe or a variation on them but we call them 'sambas'

    I've owned a pair myself in the past.

    I really hope they can identify them. I can't imagine being the person to discover someone's foot..my gosh.

    There were a bunch of feet inside shoes found several years ago.. I want to say Puget Sound area...? Anyway, I'm just remembering a Rachel Maddow show about how many of them were eventually identified and something about how certain types of shoes end up protecting the feet from decaying at the same rate as the unprotected parts.. Ugh so gross sorry. IDK if that's what happened here.

    Yes and no. There is always something sitting on the docks. I've seen where some of the boats will have a pair of shoes sitting at the foot of the boat steps on the dock... just like some people leave their shoes outside the door of their home. People may have walked by the shoe thinking someone found a shoe and left it for the owner to claim.

    What creeps me out is that, in my uneducated opinion, it does not appear to have been in the water long. If so, I would think that the effects of the salt water would have caused some deterioration.

    Also, there was heavy rain last week, the parking lot flooded. It could have washed up somewhere at that time.
    Just my opinion... and trust me, I do have one.

    Charleston County Coroner Rae Wooten said it is a size 9 man's shoe. Wooten stressed that this does not necessarily mean it is a man's foot.

    Wooten said it would be impossible to determine how long the shoe had been in the water, but said it may have been brought to the surface during last week's severe weather. She said it is possible someone cleaning floating debris from the water tossed the shoe onto the dock, perhaps not realizing it contained human remains.

    There was a search recently for an elderly boater who was sailing from Florida to Maine. His unmanned boat washed up this week on the shore in North Carolina: http://www.baynews9.com/content/news...ter_from_.html

    9 is not that big for a man but 9 mens is pretty big for a woman.
