Dear All,

It may be a long shot, but I thought I should ask around here just in case.

A pair of newly purchased Alden irregulars (Color 8 Tasselless loafers with handsewn vamp, Plaza last, size 7.5D) were stolen Wed/Thurs this past week in the Chicago area.

The Fedex package was shown as delivered around noon Wednesday but was missing when I got home by 6pm. Then next morning (Thurs), I found the empty shipping box with the corresponding tracking, contents removed.

I've done all the due diligence (e.g. contacted neighbors, filed with FedEx, Paypal, and retailer, who were excellent throughout). However, I am still hoping to recover the shoes.

In the off chance that you spotted such a pair on the interwebs, could you kindly let me know?

Also, if you have advice on where I might look locally to find the shoes (likely being resold), I would sincerely appreciate it.

Many thanks

Perhaps keep an eye on OfferUp, LetGo or even Craigslist. Good luck.
