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 install a clothing alarm and put Clothing Security tags on your shoes, think about the reasons and ways people will try to steal 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, the shoplifter will simply walk out the door with their new pair of shoes.
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.
Regardless of the reason, it has been proven time and time again that the simple effort of putting security tags on clothes and shoes is an effective deterrent.
Using Checkpoint tags allows you to have the versatility to protect your shoes and the rest of your store’s clothes with interchangeable tags and labels.
