Brooklyn Teen Shot After Cutting Line At Foot Locker For Yeezys


/ April 21, 2014

The struggle just got realer for NYC sneaker-heads.

A 15-year-old was reportedly shot in the foot shortly after attempting to cut a long line of people, waiting to buy Kanye West x Nike’s Air Yeezys Saturday morning (April 19) outside of a Foot Locker on Knickerbocker Avenue in Brooklyn, according to NBC New York.

While police have taken a 14-year-old suspect into custody, the shooter was said to have fled the scene after making the emotional claim about his hard-earned spot on line.

The NY Post reported earlier last month that a riot took place in SoHo over the $250 kicks, which was later shut down by police.

And this is why we can’t have nice things.
