Some alleged shoe thieves in Texas showed some creativity last week. But not quite enough, apparently.

According to the Houston Chronicle, police in Texas said three teenagers allegedly cut a hole in the roof of a Houston mall in order to break in and steal several pairs of Air Jordan shoes. A 19-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy were arrested, while a third alleged thief escaped, according to the Houston Chronicle report.
