They are, arguably, the most recognized shoes in movie history.
And three people thought it would be cool to steal them.
Now, the pair was a replica - but it was still a pretty pricey heist since the shoes cost $2,500.
The shoes were on display in the lobby at the Hilton Garden Inn in Staten Island, N.Y.
It was part of a promotional idea by the hotel’s owner, Richard Nicotra.
"We know there's no place like home, but at the Hilton Garden Inn we'll do our best," was written on a nearby sign.
Julie Walker-Merkle, Joseph Cipoletti, were the pair (pun intended) who took the shoes while Ronald Geraghty acted as lookout, according to the New York Daily News.
An attorney for Cipoletti and Walker-Merkle, a former congressional aide, said the shoe-napping was meant to be a prank.
“They thought it would be fun to dance in the ruby slippers.”
The shoes were returned by Walker-Merkle’s dad.
