Thieves in Essex have made off with more than 500 pairs of Northwave winter boots after breaking into a lorry that had been parked up overnight.
Following the theft last week, distributor i-ride has warned retailers to be vigilant about being offered winter boots at a discount, reports the trade website BikeBiz.
The boots in question are the Northwave Arctic Commuter GTX MTB and the Northwave Arctic Commuter road.
We reviewed the latter last year, and a pretty decent bit of kit it was too, getting a rating of 9 out of 10.
Anyone with information about the stolen footwear is asked to contact i-ride on 01444 243 000 or info [at] i-ride.co.uk, or alternatively Essex Police on 101.
