Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - Thousands of Nike tennis shoes have been confiscated, and now are being held in the impound lot at the Radcliff Police Department.
An investigation is now underway, and it's making national headlines.
The shoes were apparently found at a home in central Kentucky.
It is believed the shoes were supposed to be shipped in 2009 from a Nike distribution center in Tennesee to Texas, but didn't make it.
The women who had the shoes said they had purchased them from someone else and didn't know they were stolen.
Those women were selling them at a flea market.
