Massive Campout Forces Supreme To Cancel Foamposite Release
Supreme New York has cancelled the in-store release of the Supreme Foamposites due to a massive campout that threatened the safety of pedestrians as well as those vying for the shoes. Lines were beginning to form once the official release date was made public on Monday, and by 7 PM tonight, the already busy intersection of Prince St. at Lafayette was infiltrated with thousands of sneakerheads and Supreme fanatics – all in hopes of copping the shoes that officially go on sale tomorrow.
The official notice of cancellation came when Supreme posted a message on their Instagram account as well as on their storefront window (see below), but this change of plans only affects the in-store release at the New York location. The shoes will still go on sale tomorrow on the Supreme online store, so hope is not lost. We thought we were done with chaotic campouts, right? Well, given the right shoe and the right amount of hype, anything can happen. Check out the photos below and give us your opinions on this turn of events.
At kixify.com/store/nice-choice we have a DS pair of 8.5 #supremefoamposites for sale! Holler at us if you missed out on em!
Smh , All this is a joke , they wait in line to get shoes , when you can simply wait in a employment line and actually do good . This is the most , and actually why people are dropping down and back away from the sneaker community .
Sad, u couldn't get them to line up for a job corps or to vote.... but I guess this is more important.
No it is a joke, because there are a couple hundred idiots standing in a line to a shoe store that probably only has 25 pairs of them.
Nick Allier, that's crazy... I seen all these people waiting outside foot locker in folding chairs, line was wrapped around the whole damn mall!!
wish i can go back to the days where i can go pick up foams 2 days after release. i gave up on sneakers cause of shit like this....
This is taking the word "hypebeast" to a whole new level. Because of incidents like this one, i think stores are force to do raffles. I used to live in the Bronx, when there's a Jordan release it's too hard to copp a pair. I live in Jersey now and it's a different scenario.
1) Do these people have jobs, if so, what kind of job? cuz apparently I'm doing something wrong... 2) Its another ugly ass foam with a ridiculous graphic like the ones last year, so just cuz its Supreme, lets riot? 3) Nike has PLENTY of experience with this; why would you release them the 'old school' way, you knew this would happen..?
@Brads Pitt I'm still at a loss for words.
