NEW YORK -- Thieves in New York City have started a new sneaker trend.

The owner of one Bronx sneaker store says the thieves do their research. They know before they steal a left shoe which store has a right shoe of the same size and style on display.

A store manager in SoHo says he loses about 50 display shoes a year to thieves.

Some store owners are tying shoes to display walls so no one will walk off with them.
