People slept in front of Nike last night

They’ve been there for a couple nights, too, at Nike’s Yorkville store. Anyone know why?



  1. DanO says:

    Sneakerheads in line for Kanye West Nikes I believe

  2. Matt says:

    Sneakerheads?! There is such a thing? Ok then…

  3. Kevin T. says:


  4. JamesHalifax says:

    Sneakers aside……did you hear about the dude who turned his dead cat into a helicopter?

    I don’t know if I’m impressed…..or grossed out.

  5. Manny says:

    Occupy Nike?

  6. drinaO says:

    Designed by Kenya West the shoes are called “air yeezy 2”

    There will be a huge nike launch sat. They say biggest release of this year.

  7. Frank says:

    What absolute and utter MUGS!

  8. Steve T says:

    If this is for a pair of shoes, we are witnessing the fall of modern civilization. Wonder how many of these people would line up to vote on election day? Or to volunteer at soup kitchen? etc… etc…

    • MCBellecourt says:

      Reminds me of the idiocy behind the Tickle-Me Elmo and the Cabbage Patch Kids.

      And Steve, I concur with you there. That is one helluva good question.

    • JamesHalifax says:

      Or how many of them would be lining up for a job instead.

      • smelter rat says:

        At the price they’re asking for those shoes, i can guarantee you those people aren’t jobless.

        • JamesHalifax says:

          If anyone pays over $50 for sneakers….they better do a lot of running.

          Otherwise, it’s a waste.

          By the time NIKE has finished paying Indonesians or Chinese $1 to make a pair of shoes……what do you think their profit margin is?

          • smelter rat says:

            I don’t disagree with your last remark. I disagree with your earlier statement where you implied they should be lining up for a job.

          • JamesHalifax says:

            I agree……some of them most likely do have jobs.

            But I wonder who was working them while these folks decided to camp out on the streets for a few days. Did they ask their boss? Or did they call in sick?

            Just curious.

          • smelter rat says:

            Well it would be irresponsible not to speculate, I suppose.

  9. JamesHalifax says:

    On another note……..

    do you think these guys would be better off looking for sneakers?
