Sneaker thief's stupid police station raid
This totally reminded me of A Woman's Right to Shoes, the infamous Sex and the City episode where Carrie's shoes are stolen at a shoes-off party.
This blog recommends that you adopt a shoes-off policy in your home, not just for family but also for guests and other visitors. Socks, slippers and bare feet are fine indoors, but not shoes. Just say NO to shoes in your house!
