Community Poll: Are YEEZY Releases Getting Out of Hand?

The adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Zebra” was one of the biggest adidas Yeezy releases to-date. Some even say it took the throne from the “Turtle Dove” release – but that’s a debate for another day.

With the hype so high for the release, during its launch a report of sneaker violence emerged from New York’s SoHo neighborhood. According to DNA Info, five men attacked a man and his friend who had just purchased the “Zebra” Yeezy Boosts.

The victims, both 20-year-olds from Brooklyn, told police that they were approached by the group of young men as they walked on Greene Street, near Spring Street, at about 11:50 a.m. on Saturday.

Some of men in the group asked if they could buy the victim’s new shoes, which he was carrying in a bag, police said.

When the man refused to sell, one of men grabbed the bag, ripping it and letting the sneakers fall to the ground. As the victim tried to pick up the shoes, one of the robbers began to repeatedly punch him in the face — his friend tried to intervene and ended up getting hit as well, police said. The men then ran off with the sneakers.

Police arrested one person, 19-year-old Warren Rose, and charged him with two counts of second degree robbery.

While this violence typically happens more often during Air Jordan releases, it’s now beginning to happen with adidas Yeezy releases due to how extremely hard it is to get a pair.

What do you guys think? Are Yeezy releases getting out of hand? Should adidas go the Jordan Brand route and start producing more pairs?
