They made it especially for the movie:
"The Shoe Tree is covered with shoes that have been tied together and flung into it. It's weird and gorgeous. There are 480 pairs of shoes in the shoe tree. The art department bought shoes by the pound—they had to throw out all the loafers, because they couldn't tie them together. We shot it in about three or four hours, and the next week we had to go back and untie every pair of shoes and take them down. It almost breaks my heart that we created this beautiful thing for the movie and now the Shoe Tree is gone."
