This scene comes after a crowd outside a Bronx, NY Footlocker turned violent over the newly released Jordan shoe. At least three people were pummeled to the grown in Stockton.
A mother of a teen slain over a pair of sneakers in Houston last year, Dazie Williams, has launched Life Over Fashion, a campaign calling for Nike to reconsider its release methods. Williams told the Cypress Creek Mirror in an interview conducted shortly after her son’s killing, “It hurt me greatly knowing that he had been killed over shoes.” She continues, “But it’s nothing new. This has been going on since the ’80s.”
