"...police were called in late Thursday to break up a crowd that had gathered at the Florida Mall near Orlando in anticipation of the release of a new limited edition, glow-in-the-dark Nike shoe."
"More than 100 officers in riot gear were needed to disperse several hundred people who law enforcement officials said became unruly as they waited for the $220 Nike Galaxy Air Foamposite Ones to go on sale."
100 officers in riot gear. For glow-in-the-dark shoes. That cost $220.

Well, guess what else you're not buying? To review: 14-year-olds. 100 officers in riot gear. Glow-in-the-dark shoes. $220.
"In Seattle, cops used pepper spray to subdue what they said were unruly sneaker-heads."
