Thief steals 312 left shoes

July 9, 2004


— If people say you've got two left feet, there's a thief somewhere with a deal for you.

On Tuesday morning, Nike salesman Ray Staiger said he left his hotel and found the lock to his pickup truck bed had been broken. Staiger told police someone took 312 shoes he used as sales samples, which he valued at $10,789.

Thing is, they were all left shoes. A salesman in Missouri has the right mates.

Staiger had to cancel sales presentations he had scheduled for Kansas City and Omaha, Neb., and return to Wichita for replacement shoes, paying a $500 deductible.
