Thousands of sports shoes have been washed up on a Dutch island after a ship lost some of its containers in heavy weather. Residents of Terschelling island rushed to get the trainers, but were faced with having to search for shoes that matched in size and design.

Police made no effort to stop people taking goods from containers that had broken open, reports say. Other items washed up included briefcases, toys and meat. The ship, the Mondriaan, got into difficulties on Thursday night about 14 km (9 miles) off the Terschelling coast.

I saw that on TV, those Dutch are always lucky :) They showed someone driving off with hundreds of shoes in the back of his truck, but they did mention that it was very hard to find two shoes of the same size so no reason to be too jealous :p

And if you take home dozens of shoes you're bound to find at least one pair that will fit :p Next time I go to The Netherlands I'll watch out for people with salty-looking (and perhaps smelling :)) shoes :D
