|One of the two men|
|Appears in||GTA Vice City|
|Located in||In the waters of Vice City|
In two different locations in the water that surrounds the city, two fat men wearing cement shoes can be seen underwater. The men are stripped of their clothes except for their underwear. They are also slightly obese, and appear to have been dead for not very long, because their skin hasn't been decomposed completely. They have their feet inside of dried cement and have been dumped into the ocean, which was a notorious method of torturing and killing people that the Mafia used in the 80s.
Vice City Mafia
The Cement Shoe Men are an easter egg, referencing the Mafia in Vice City. One of the Cement Shoe Men can be found north of 1102 Washington Street, across the water along the southwestern coast. The other is east of Skumole Shack, on the sea rock between Downtown and Leaf Links. This myth is closed and is said to be just an Easter Egg.
These Cement Shoe Men can also be a reference to Jimmy Hoffa. Hoffa was the powerful and controversial leader of the Teamsters Union from 1957 to 1971. Often alleged to have ties to organized crime, Hoffa was finally convicted of fraud and jury tampering in 1964 and served four years. In 1975, while trying to regain power in the union, Hoffa disappeared from a restaurant parking lot in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. He was widely assumed to have been killed by the Mafia. His body was never found, and in 1983 he was declared legally dead. In September of 2001, news reports claimed that DNA tests by the FBI had tied Hoffa to a car driven by his associate Charles O'Brien the day Hoffa went missing, suggesting that charges might still be brought in the case. Many believed Hoffa to be thrown in a cement mixer and mixed in with an architectural structure
- Forelli Family is often believed to be the leading culprits behind the Cement Shoe Men, due to their barbaric nature and vigorous mafia web. A stabbed man, can be seen perceived at Saint Marks (Vice City Version), this act is similar to the Cement Shoe Men. Possibly referencing Forelli Family as the culprit behind this crime.
- One of the men in cement shoes is believed be Diaz, due to his resemblance to the men. This is unlikely, however, the man can be seen before Diaz's death from the beginning of the game. Also, both men are exactly identical in appearance, making this impossible to be Diaz.
