This is most likely a scam known as 'empty packet scalping' or
The good news is they aren't scamming you, they are scamming the site that
their store is listed on.
One metric used by Ali Baba and similar sites to rank sellers is sales
volume. To combat fraud they require proof that the item shipped. To get
around this shops post low value items to people that didn't order them,
then give the shipping info to Ali Baba as proof of delivery. For the low
cost of 2 shoe pouches they gain more legitimacy for their store.
The bad news is that your name and shipping address (and any other details
that appeared on the package) have been leaked from somewhere, good luck
working out where.
There's not much you can do about it. If the shoe pouches are useful you
can use or donate them, otherwise throw them out.

company I ordered something had a computer error and sent me the wrong
But I don't recall having any outstanding orders from Chinese companies.
Any idea on what I should do? I Googled the name listed as the sender and
seems to be a Chinese name that's more common than my name is in English.
