Skip to comments.$10,000 Worth Of Right-Footed Shoes Stolen On Valencia Street

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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?
For people with big feet.
A large one legged woman was seen hopping away.
You don’t have to be a large woman to have large feet.
I think we’ve found the culprit ...
This thread is over - I declare the winner is you! lol
Every Flatfoot & gumshoe in town ought to be out pounding the pavement.
"..police searching for a centipede walking in circles"
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.
Oh you’ve got me laughing...along with the other posts.
Especially needed these days... :-)))
Could the culprit be a one legged transvestite?
Police are searching for a woman named Ilene.
LOL, LV...did you read the comments at that site? Those are just hilarious!
She lives in my town! Ilean isn’t her real name but that’s what they all call her. A real nasty attitude and lawsuit happy witch!
Do they specialize in men who wear dresses?
Maybe it’s a Japanese woman named Irene.
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.
