Unfashionable Thieves Make Off With 50 Oversized Right-Footed Shoes

Categories: Humor, WTF?

If the shoe fits...

We're not kidding when we tell you that a San Francisco shoe store had some $10,000 worth of right-footed plus-sized shoes stolen Monday night.

Perhaps it was the work of some right-footed peg-leg pirates?

According to Johanna Nilsson, a spokeswoman for LLXLLQ (AKA: really large shoes for women), she parked her car near 19th and Valencia streets, leaving a suitcase of 50 right-footed shoe samples in her trunk. When she came back, the shoes -- and incidentally, her Christmas spirit -- were long gone.

The Palo Alto-based online store, which specializes in oversized Italian shoes, is now hoping that a good Samaritan who appreciates shoes will find the footwear and return it.

Yes, there's a reward -- no questions asked. Anyone who returns all 50 shoes can get either a free pair of oversized footwear (one right and one left shoe), or $150 Visa gift card. If you know what happened to the shoes, call Nilsson at (650) 516-7463.

Perhaps we shouldn't be surprised if now there's a sudden rash of left-footed shoe thefts around town.

Thank you Coburn for this article! One of your readers called and emailed me to tell that the LLXLLQ shoes were last viewed on "Tuesday morning (probably around 8/8:30). The shoes were at the NW corner of Dorland & Guerrero (closer to Dolores/17th), between 17th & 18th Streets. They were all together, in a big pile." Has anyone seen the shoes since? 

On a different note - I think I need to show you the shoes... The category of your follow-up snitch would still be "WTF",  because the reality of the shoes would impress you! :) /Johanna
