$10,000 Worth Of Right-Footed Shoes Stolen On Valencia Street
SF APPEAL ^ | December 6, 2012

Posted on 12/08/2012 10:42:57 AM PST by nickcarraway

A small business that sells plus-size women's shoes took a big hit this week when dozens of the company's shoes were stolen from a car in San Francisco's Mission District.

Johanna Nilsson, a spokeswoman for LLXLLQ, said she was parked at 19th and Valencia streets on Monday evening when someone broke into the trunk of her car and stole about 50 shoe samples, all right-footed. The total value of the shoes is about $10,000, she said.

The Palo Alto-based company, which sells various shoes crafted in Italy in sizes 10-12, is currently online-only but plans to open a store in the near future on San Francisco's Union Street, Nilsson said.

Because the shoes are all for the right foot and thus have no street value, the company is asking that they be returned with no questions asked since the theft has spoiled its holiday sales outlook.

"It's a pretty large amount of value for a very small company," Nilsson said. For anyone who finds stolen goods, the company is offering a free pair of shoes or a gift card for $150.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Nilsson at (650) 516-7463 or send an email to media@llxllq.com.

The thief got off on the wrong foot.

He found out later he was a foot short.

Who’s going to foot the bill?

If he stole all these right shoes, what’s left?

"Because the shoes are all for the right foot and thus have no street value,..."

Obviously they have overlooked the huge black market in amputee footwear.

You don’t have to be a large woman to have large feet.

it amazes me how STUPID most criminals are

How they will spend more time and effort to steal something when they would make more money if they worked for that same amount of time anmd effort

and i think someone who steals should be charged for the FULL REPLACEMENT value- i have seen idiot morons steal $100 worth of copper pipes, but do $10,000 worth of damage to tear it out.

“A small business that sells plus-size women’s shoes “

OK, so I only read the headline. I guess Long John Silver put on some weight and developed a think for heels.

Could the culprit be a one legged transvestite?
Just wondering.

C'mon, shoes were sizes 10 thru 12. You could float up the Nile in one of those
And 99% of the time, big feet do = big women.

Are you a professional in some field that would make it possible this contention is anything other than made up off the top of your head?

Foot length correlates with height, so some extent, although not universally. My middle daughters (14 and 12) both have size 10-1/2 feet, and the younger's may not be done growing. The older one is about 5'7", which is tall-ish, but not impressively so. The younger is just over 5 feet. Neither girl is "large" in any meaningful sense.

Larger feet in the population as a whole appears to reflect better nutrition, as even taller people in earlier generations (or in cruddy countries) tended to have smaller feet. My feet are 9-1/2s, and I'm 5'4". One of my Mexican friends is 5'10" and has size 6-1/2 feet.

Bad neighborhood. I grew up near their and it was bad then and worse now.

Not too smart of a businesswoman leaving 10k of merch in her car overnight.

Maybe said woman was properly insured and needed some extra Christmas cash.

“Appears to reflect” is suitable verbiage for an anecdotal observation.
