Thieves in Akron, Ohio, pulled off a crazy caper at sneaker store Villa by hacking their way into the roof with an ax and stealing a bunch of shoes.

The video above breaks down the strange sneaker crime and makes it look like the culprits either took the sneakers without the boxes or left a bunch of pairs behind.

For all the effort the thieves put into chopping through the roof, they only made off with around 20 pairs of Air Jordans.

Police say they have surveillance video showing two suspects, but are having trouble identifying them.
