"Shoe Crazy" Leads to Jail!

Two women stole several pairs of handmade Italian shoes from a boutique and led police on a high-speed chase during which they tossed the spiky-heeled footwear at pursuing officers, authorities said.

A clerk from Rangoni Shoes in the upscale La Jolla neighborhood reported the theft of $700 worth of shoes Sunday afternoon, said San Diego police Sgt. Bob Dare. A responding officer found a suspect in the store and asked her for identification.

The woman said her ID was in her car and left her keys with the officer to ensure her return. She apparently had a spare set of keys, however, and sped off with her friend in a 1997 Honda Civic, police said.

They fled along two interstates at speeds of up to 100 mph and sideswiped several cars, according to the California Highway Patrol. Officers stopped the women in the San Diego suburb of El Cajon by ramming their vehicle.

The women, ages 31 and 35, were arrested for investigation of theft and evading arrest, police said.

What shoes were worth stealing? What was all the fuss about? These are the shoes worth going to jail over! Rangoni Shoes! Rangoni Shoes!
