The Spinning Red Shoe Of Las Vegas

The official name is Ruby Slipper. How many slippers have high heels and over the ankle straps?

The red shoe which is located between the El Cortez and Mamacita's Cuban Mexican Restaurant on Fremont Street spins. Quickly. Ten seconds for a revolution might not seem too fast, but as I stood in the street clocking the revolutions of the red shoe, the speed seemed overly quick for the "feel" of the environment.

Maybe the designers of the Fremont East District are psychologically trying to influence people to hurry up as they cross the street, as the shoe is also at a midstreet pedestrian crosswalk.
