Does Nike produce left and right shoes in different countries?

Does Nike produce left and right shoes in different countries?

In a story, widely circulated on the Internet, Nike faced a problem of pilfering on their new factories somewhere in the Third World.

When standard methods (increased security etc.) yielded no result, they contracted a freelance problem solver, who, after a brief thought, offered them to split production of left and right shoes across factories in two different countries. They did it and pilfering stopped.

This is usually presented as a good example of «thought outside the box», along with the NASA space pen and elevator on the outer wall.

What do you think, is it as false as those?
