State College police are trying to identify a man suspected of stealing a pair of shoes Friday from Barefoot, located at 130 E. College Ave.

Lt. Brad Smail said the college-aged white man allegedly took a pair of Timberland boots valued about $175.

According to a police report, the man entered the store around 1:36 p.m. Friday and tried on a pair of shoes.

By about 1:40 p.m., the man fled the store with the shoes, without paying for them, the report said.
