About 1,000 shoppers that gathered for a shoe release at an Orlando mall late Thursday became out of control, prompting deputies in riot gear to disperse the crowd.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office said 200 deputies went to the Florida Mall about 9:45 p.m. because of the crowd, which became unruly after Foot Locker canceled the release of the limited-edition Nike Air Foamposite One "Galaxy" shoes. The $220 purple and blue sneakers are made from an extra-durable material and glow in the dark.

We need a big time change in our culture.
If people are going to riot and kill each other, you’d want it to be for a better cause than this....
those fighting amish...
Pathetic isn’t it?
I’m actually glad I grew up poor and independent. I just don’t have the desperate need for crap like $200 shoes. I paid $12 for the ones I’m wearing.
Makes it really easy to catch the perps in the dark.................
This is why Obama travelled to Orlando yesterday.
He wanted to be the first in the White House to sport the new ghetto kicks.
It costs money for the police to be called to break up this riot, as well as the loss of income and inventory to the merchants at the mall. It would be just if the rioters were compelled to pay back the law enforcement agency and the merchants through enforced contract labor, in other words, the chain gang.
HA-HA! You got ripped off! I paid $6 for the ones I'm wearing! At Goodwill!...........
Gotta spend those guberment checks somewhere. There’s just so much money you can spend at the nail salon.
Let me guess.
They have no shame any more. Chain gangs are good only for the ones that are embarrassed to be there............
Another look into the minds of a class of people who have their sense of worth defined by a pair of shoes.
“Makes it really easy to catch the perps in the dark......”
Let me fix that Badge;
“Makes it really easy to target the perps in the dark......” No night vision scope needed!
And 90% of those rioting fools are probably on Gumint Cheese. DISGUSTING.
“I paid $6 for the ones I’m wearing! At Goodwill!...”
Dead man’s shoes Badge!
Hey, we live in a town full of retirees...............Waste not, want not!.............
Somebody is going to get a good deal at St Vincent De Paul. I donated two old brand new pairs of Levis yesterday. I found them sealed in a rubbermaid tote at my grandmother’s house where I left them better than 20 years ago.
Brand new and still had the tags on them.
Here’s a thought. Someone needs to use social media and have a nationwide Nike sale election day.
What, didn’t they still fit? ;)
