Manhattan Sneaker Store Looted, Bandits Steal $30,000 in Shoes

While some New Yorkers are banding together to help one another in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy there are a few worms in the Big Apple who saw opportunity in catastrophe.

ABC News is reporting that some unscrupulous sneaker heads looted the  Kixclusive store in Lower Manhattan, north of Little Italy:

In Manhattan, four men ages 18 to 30 were arrested and charged with burglary after breaking into Kixclusive, a sneaker store at 288 Mulberry Street on the Lower East Side. The store had been burglarized during the height of the storm Monday, boarded up with a piece of plywood and locked. Burglars allegedly made off with 30 pairs of sneakers worth $30,000, about $1,000 a pair, according to the NYPD.

$30,000 in kicks though? We wonder what they took . . .
