    Soon the store will receive a ransom note:

    “If you want to see your right shoes again, put $10,000 in small unmarked bills in a paper bag and leave it ....”

    This should be easy to solve. Just look for a one leg bandit.. or possibly someone wearing two different styles of shoes on his feet. :)
