Bonving is the Swedish game of shoe tossing, invented, apparently, by members of the Swedish music group Eggstone. The goal of the game? I quote: "To throw a classic men's shoe size 9 or 10 into the opponent team's field. Your rival team will then try to catch your throw in their garbage cans. If you as server, succeed to land the shoe on their square, you will award 1 point. If the opponent team catches your shoe, they will get the point."

To discover that such sports are being created and played is music to this writer's conceptual ears. It's the spirit of Junkyard Sports epitomized. Using found objects like shoes and garbage cans, the sport, at least until official shoe size and garbage can properties are determined, is an invitation to playfulness as much as it is an invitation to play.
