Where He lost them

For those who like quaint (American[?]) expressions, a question .... Any

Whence the expression "where Jesus lost his shoes", = "way out in the
sticks/boondocks/wilderness" or " out in the end of nowhere"?

I've heard only this form. Google search doesn't show it on the Web, but I
get three hits for "where Jesus lost his sandals" and one for "where Christ
lost his shoes", in the same sense.

Is this from some Bible story?
