Mission District Thieves Steal 50 Right-foot Shoe Samples

Mission district thieves steal 50 right-foot shoe samples - the half-baked theft produces full loss for fledgling shoe company.
Dec. 5, 2012 - PRLog -- On Monday evening, a vehicle break-in at Valencia and 19th streets in San Francisco’s Mission District resulted in the theft of 50 shoe samples, all right-footed, from a small shoe start-up specializing in women’s quality plus-sized shoes.

The samples, from Bay Area fledgling company LLXLLQ, were being used to close sales at local stores during the ever-important holiday retail season, according to company spokesperson Johanna Nilsson. In addition, the 50 pairs of hand-made shoes were slated to be sold at a later date, with the profits going to several local women’s charities.

“It goes against the grain of the holiday spirit, when people are focused on giving and helping those in need,” Nilsson said. “While the right-footed shoes have no street value, their theft destroys our entire samples inventory, plus the money we intended to raise from their sale for charities,” she added.

Nilsson is appealing to local media outlets to spread the word, hoping that someone will return the shoes with no questions asked. A reward will be given to the person returning the LLLXLLQ shoes.
