Why would anyone try to steal a pair of shoes? For the same reasons that they want to steal anything else. If you are questioning whether to put Checkpoint tags on your shoes, think about the reasons and ways people will try to steal them.
First think about why someone steals shoes. They might steal them out of necessity. Maybe it is out of peer pressure to have better shoes than they can afford. Maybe it is just peer pressure to steal something in general. It could even be as simple as they shoplifter wanted them and no one was watching so they took them.
One of the most common ways that shoes are stolen is called a shoe switch. The shoplifter comes into the store in a pair of shoes or sandals that are worthless to them. They try on the shoes they want and put their old shoes back in the box. If the shoes don’t have any clothing security tags, the shoplifter will simply walk out the door with their new pair of shoes.
Having security tags on clothes, like shoes, is the easiest way to protect them from being stolen. If you use clothing security, the shoplifters won’t be able to leave without setting off the clothing alarm.
