Whilst I don’t think Reebok will be using this slogan to advertise their trainers anytime soon it seems that most burglars choose Reebok. That’s according to a university study which examined footprints found at crime scenes. Reebok Classics were found to be worn by 52 out of a 100 burglars in the Northamptonshire region after studying footprints in 155 burglaries. The study found that jobless criminals were more likely to wear expensive trainers spending up to £19 more on shoes than burglars who have jobs. It also found that for every extra £1 spent on trainers the level of social and economic deprivation of the criminal increased by 0.75%. Student Matthew Tonkin who did the research hopes that police will be able to use the information to narrow down their list of prolific offenders.
