Teenager Shot After Cutting Line To Buy Yeezys


(AllHipHop News) Sneakerheads are known to take their hobby very seriously, but one customer’s anger over getting jumped in line at a shoe store led to a teenager being hospitalized and another being jailed.

The New York Daily News reports 15-year-old Isaiah Martinez was shot in the left foot Saturday morning outside a Brooklyn Foot Locker. Martinez allegedly tried to cut the line waiting to get into the store to buy the Nike Air Foamposite Pro Yeezys.

Witnesses say other customers told the teen to go to the back of line. Martinez then got into a verbal exchange with another person before the situation turned violent.

“I guess he tried to get tough with one of the guys he cut,” said Jayson Roque. “One of them left and came back with a gun and shot him.”

Police have a 14-year-old suspect in custody. He is facing assault and weapons charges.

Martinez was taken to a local hospital with a nonlife-threatening injury.

    These are not sneakerheads nowadays. They’re hypebeasts. Dudes don’t even cop because they like the shoes. They cop because some rapper hyped them up. Hardly any of them have any intention on keeping them. They sell them on eBay. Nike doesn’t help the situation by making a limited amount, and on top of that, charging $250 for them. Foamposites were $200 just three years ago!

      So true, accurate on all fronts coming from you as I’m legitimately into sneaks myself. But I don’t get everything since I’m that picky although I keep up with what’s coming out.

      You need to wake up and learn how to write a proper sentence.
      Your point falls on deaf ears when you can not properly draft a sentence.

    • Guest

      Again you simply show how unintelligent you really are. Good job. I hope you feel like a tough guy now and it helps with your self esteem issues.

    I hope in my lifetime I am able to bear witness to the Black American Enlightenment Movement, in which Black Americans once again built a Black Wall Street community, focus on education, create a secret Black militia that confronts Black rappers and others for putting out negative stereotypes about Black men and women. I would love to see Black America rise up and show what we are capable of. We as a people have done nothing since the 1960’s.

    By the time he gets out of jail his Nike Air Foamposite Pro Yeezys would have become an antique. LOL

    • BigHomie337
