NYPD Cancels Store Release of Pricey NIKE Foamposite Sneakers

NYPD Cancels Store Release of Pricey NIKE Sneakers

THe NYPD shut down a store that was set to sell the new $250 Supreme/Nike Air Foamposite sneakers on Thursday.

Police dispersed about 300 sneaker heads (mostly blacks and Hispanics) who lined up outside Supreme New York on Lafayette Street Thursday morning. Most of them were unaware that the NYPD cancelled the sale of the colorful basketball shoes.

NYPD Cancels Store Release of Pricey NIKE Sneakers

The store posted a notice of cancellation on its website on Wednesday that read:

“Due to concern for public safety, NYPD has forced us to not sell the Supreme/Nike Foamposites and accompanying clothing in our New York Store. These items will be available on supremenewyork.com tomorrow (Thursday) at 11am EST.”

Historically, store releases of NIKE Air Jordans and other high demand products have resulted in riots, injuries, and even deaths.

Civic leaders in major cities have long called for NIKE to put an end to the much-hyped store releases due to the risk of injuries.

      I can understand why they would cancel this. Too many past incidents.

      I don’t particularly like these…but I know a few DBoys that will be rocking these. Hopefully, their ensembles will not have a matching shirt or pants, :nono: complimentary, but not matching. Just too much..IMO.

      interesting being that I live directly around the corner from a store that has these sales.

      dont believe the hype yall.

      first of all its a whole lot of asians and ALLLLLLLLLLLLL types of other ppl that come from all over the state, country, world to get the sneakers only available here.

      these sales happen at least once a month if not more. ppl start waiting in line at night and they are assigned a ticket number. I pass by them in the morning and there hasnt been one fight or outbreak yet. hell, they look too dam sleepy to do anything.

      now next door at the DMV is a whole nother story. :tea:

      it will be one lonnnnng as line for ppl waiting to get sneakers, another lonnnnnng ass line fore ppl waiting to audition at the apollo and another lonnnnnng ass line for ppl waiting to get to the DMV—on the same street at the same dam time. the one at the DMV is the only one that has security guards.

      in all honesty, the way this story reads is that the store doesnt have the sneakers and is lying and saying the nypd made them shut down (which I have never seen). there is no article or official statement to back the store’s claims up. I think they lying OR they only sold the few they had to their friends/family already.
