Three people broke into a store in Peru to steal over 200 sneakers, but they were all just for the right foot.
According to BBC News, the robbery incident that took place around 3:30 a.m. on a Sunday was captured by the CCTV. In the videos, the thieves can be seen destroying the door lock to enter the shoe shop, taking the shoes from beloved global brands, and placing them in a tricycle.
The owner of the shoe shop estimates the value of the stolen kicks at over $13,000 (P726,000).
In a social media post, Peruvian newspaper El Comercio shared a photo of the shop after the crime.
