City Gumshoes to Bust Crime with Shoeprints

Head’s up (or would it be foot’s down?) to all you scheming sneakerheads out there:

If you were planning to take down that bank on the corner for some extra kick funds anytime soon, best do it with some plastic bags wrapped over your Nikes. Mayor Bloomberg recently announced that the NYPD would soon create a “footwear recognition database” capable of not only of tracing specific kinds of footwear but also of analyzing the wearer’s walking patterns. Creeepy.
