Thieves with an expensive shoe habit broke into a shop in the Arena shopping centre in Mattersburg (Burgenland) and stole 1,000 pairs of footwear, with an estimated worth of around €100,000.

The shop was broken into at night and ransacked. The burglars took the most expensive trainers, boots and even children’s shoes and in a brazenly cheeky gesture left used shoes in the display windows.

It’s not the first time the Arena centre has been targeted by thieves, with several other shops having been broken into recently.
