Sneaker violence continues to grow throughout the years (sad to say) and with the Holidays coming up, people tend to get a bit eager to get the releases they’ve been waiting for all year.


Just recently for the NikeCourt Zoom Vapor AJ3 “Black Cement” release at NikeLab’s 21 Mercer St. location an armed man pulled a gun trying to scare people away to give up their spots – thankfully no one was hurt.

This Black Friday marks the release of the Air Jordan 6 “Black Infrared” release which is expected to draw a lot of lineups, not mentioning the hype “Black Friday” already creates. Following the “Black Infrared” 6 release comes arguably the biggest release of the year, two Air Jordan 11 colorways set for December 2014.

What will it take to stop sneaker violence? Do you think the brand’s can do anything to help it, or is it up to us to control our cool over these hyped releases?

It’s a shame to hear all the violence that occurs during these releases and specially with the Holidays coming up, we can only pray things won’t get out of control, because we’re all too familiar with how these releases can create a riot.
