Police are appealing for information after thieves made off with a stash of right-foot ladies' shoes.
The footwear was left overnight outside a shop in Exeter on Monday. The rack consisted entirely of right-footed ladies' shoes and children's snow boots.
A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "The stolen footwear will be of little use to anyone without the matching shoe.
"The opportunist thief who stole them probably didn't realise they were not in pairs. As they are useless, we appeal for them to be returned to the store."
Anyone with information about the theft, from High Street in the city centre, is asked to contact police.
