Herbert Hedges solving criminal cases by his expertise of looking at kicks. A longtime Nike employee, Hedges started working for the brand in 1978 in shoe production management and is now semi-retired, but somehow found his way into the criminal justice system as an expert shoe identifier. Also called to the stand in the much-publicized Aaron Hernandez murder trial, the most recent case that he helped crack involves another murder trial in which he identified the suspect’s Air Max 90s in a Walgreen’s surveillance camera that were a positive match to the bloody footprints later found at the scene of the crime. Definitely one of the more unique jobs in the sneaker industry. Check out full details on the case here.
