Sneakerhead Starts Sneaker Petition to Deter Delivery Theft

The sneaker petition is started by sneakerhead Dioni Minaya.

The sneaker petition requests for Adidas to remove the style code and product type from the parcel label so as to deter delivery workers from committing theft.

The petition was created by sneakerhead Dioni Minaya who claims that his Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Zebra”, which he successfully ordered online, was never delivered. Minaya suspects a FedEx delivery worker had stolen it.

According to Minaya, by removing details about the sneakers, postal workers won’t be able to recognize the contents of the box – allowing the product to be delivered safely.

Minaya claims that his theory is backed up by a number of people who have posted similar complaints online.

Echoing his sentiments, another Reddit user lordhavepercy took to the online forum to upload a video of a FedEx employee failing to deliver his brand new Yeezys. The security footage showed the postal worker carrying the parcel from the back of the van, before stashing it under the driver’s seat.

It’s unclear if the crime caught on camera is connected to Minaya’s petition.
