I was just angry at the world for some reasons as some stuff has happened to me recently. Absolutely no excuse though.

couldn't you afford them or was it for the thrill of it?

I am not the “type” to do anything like this at all. I was in a shop the other day, and was in the changing rooms and had taken in a pair of shoes with me as well as jeans. I have had a bit of a rough time lately, and obviously that’s no excuse but I had a bit of a “screw everything” type of attitude. I took the tag off the shoes and put them in my bag. I paid for the jeans. I left the store and the security alarm went off, I’m guessing there’s some sort of security thing still in the shoes or something. I just carried on walking and wasn’t chased or anything. Well now I just feel incredibly guilty for taking them, I wish I had never done it. I’m worried they’re now going to look at the camera and see it was me that set them off and find me considering I paid with card and they know my details maybe? The shoes were worth about £35 I think. I really hate myself for doing this, I had no right at all to do it and I just regret it so much. Do you think I will get tracked down at all? I wish I could just to back in time. I hate myself for it
i'm sure you'll get over it, maybe have a look to see if they have the magnetic strip in it so the alarm doesn't go off again when your out wearing the shoes in other shops.

I doubt anything will come of it, as it'll be quite hard to track, not impossible but for only £35 it won't be a big investigation (if any). Regardless, it was a dumb moment and if anything happens its entirely your own fault...

I’ve looked all over the shoes and there’s nothing on them but some shop alarms have gone off when I wore them. Yes it’s completely my own fault

The police rarely investigate thefts mounting to values of £100s worth of merchandising, yet alone a £40 pair of shoes. I've worked for companies who have repeatedly had thousands of pounds worth of tech stolen from them and the police did nothing. Shops have things taken all the time unfortunately, they may not even have noticed that they are gone, or put the change in stock down to a discrepancy. They don't have your name, address or any personal information, all they have is a vague photo of your body and maybe face if the cameras are good.

Mistake happen when you're a teenager however, in a way it's good you feel bad. It means you won't commit anymore crime and can just move on from anymore thoughts like it. Like others have said, if you feel bad when you see/wear them, give them to a charity shop or put them in one of the donation bins (commonly found at supermarkets etc) that accept clothing.

It's very unlikely they will track you down most stores factor in theft as long as you are white then they won't suspect. When the alarm went off did you **** yourself.

Also they probably don't pay enough tax and pay peanuts to children in India it's not that morally bad.

Go see a doctor - you need to address the anxiety and stress that caused you to do it in the first place.

too much effort for them to look for you - shoplifting happens a lot more than you think and many do not get caught

did you pay with card or cash btw?

If you give them to charity some unfortunate person is going to get arrested for wearing shoes with a security strip in them
