For some reason, some people who buy trainers dump the boxes they arrive in before they even get home. You will find empty shoe boxes all over Greenford, on pavements, in hedges, on the canal tow path, everywhere. It isn’t usually this brazen and they don’t usually leave the old pair behind. I am assuming that they bought the shoes but shoplifting has become a considerable problem for retailers.
