Thieves Take Shoes One At A Time

NEW YORK, (UPI) — New York shoe sellers said they have noticed a pattern of thieves taking a single display shoe from separate stores to make matching pairs.

Salissou Mohamam, 40, manager of sneaker store Michael K, said workers at his store and a city Foot Locker have noticed thieves targeting the same sneakers for the opposite feet, the New York Post reported Monday.

“They go to Foot Locker, which has all right-sided shoes. Then they come here because we display left-sided shoes,” Mohamam said.

He said about 50 pairs of shoes are stolen each year using the technique.

Jennifer Lee, 52, owner of the Sneaker Box, said her store has also been targeted by the thieves.

“They know before they steal which stores are selling which styles and sizes, left and right. They calculate before they come in,” she said.
