I don't know where this superstition originates, or why it persists, but around the Leeds area at least it seems to be thought unlucky to put shoes on a table.
I've often had a metaphorical cuff round the ear from my wife for doing exactly that, although I've no idea why!
NOTE ABOUT COMMENTS I'm trialling the Disqus comment system to see if it's a little bit better and slicker than my cobbled-together, home-grown system. If nothing else, you can now leave a commment without having to sign up. Keep things civil please - and remember that this isn't meant to be an encyclopaedic site - corrections and additions are welcome :)
