Thief Steals Diam's Shoes

A. Testoni

It was reported that a thief broke into the house of former finance minister, Tun Daim Zainuddin, past 4 security guards and 6 guard dogs to steal 3 pairs of shoes.

Apparently the incident happened between 8pm and 12 midnight on Sunday at Tun Daim's house in Jalan Kolam Air Panas, Taman Melawati, Kuala Lumpur.

Although the news report did not mention the types of shoes stolen, they could be very expensive pairs of Italian shoes. I wouldn't be surprised if the stolen shoes include the ones made by A. Testoni; reportedly the most expensive ready made men's shoes in the world, costing US$1,500 (almost RM5,000) a pair.

However expensive those shoes were, I doubt the thief would be able to sell those shoes at Chow Kit road or anywhere else for more than RM10 per pair; second hand shoes do not fetch high prices.

Please post your comment.
