SPOKANE – The biggest shoe at Bloomsday won’t be on someone’s foot.

Local balloon artist Ryan Oelrich crafted a giant running shoe entirely out of balloons.

It’s the size of a mini-van.

The creation took 176 balloons and four hours to put together.

Oelrich made the shoe to promote Epilepsy awareness. Epilepsy is a neurological seizure disorder that Oelrich had as a child.

The shoe is on display at River Park Square through Sunday.
