I personally would not spend $180 on a pair of sneakers. Other than that, I’m pleasantly surprised that the Huffington Post decided to report on this:
A man trying to rob Atlanta customers waiting to buy the latest LeBron James sneakers was killed by a shopper who continued to wait on line after the shooting, according to NBC News.
The robber, a man who has not been identified yet, sauntered up to people before dawn in Atlanta, waiting in line to purchase the $180 Lebon X Denim kicks by Nike on the day they were released, CNN reported. The shoes, endorsed by the star forward on the Miami Heat, could be sold for a much higher price on eBay.
Witnesses said the thief pulled out a gun and tried to rob the crowd.
