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, â€œIt hurt me greatly knowing that he had been killed over shoes.â€ She continues, â€œBut itâ€™s nothing new. This has been going on since the ’80s.”
