A jailed crime boss serving 20 years for a machine gun trafficking plot has been awarded compensation after his designer shoes got lost in the the post.
Miekeil Dixon-Nash's £1,500 blue Christian Louboutin were lost when they were posted to him while he was serving time at HMP Swaleside in Kent.
A pair of golden Nike Air Max 97 trainers were also lost after they were posted to the prison.
The gangster, 30, claimed more than £4,500 in loses - which included the price of the £1,500 trainers, as well as for the time he was 'deprived' of wearing the shoes, The Sun reports.
Hearing the case, judge Caroline Wilkinson, at Central London County Court, accepted he owned the trainers and they were sent in.
But she awarded Dixon-Nash £144 for the Louboutins and £95 for the Nikes - because he could not prove they were new.
