It is hard to decide which is more stupid – paying north of $200 for sneakers or rioting to be the first in line to do so.

Is there much hope for an economy that continues to be based on wanton consumption when events like this still happen?

These shoes are marketed specifically to provoke over-the-top consumer reactions. It’s like iPhone junkies on┬ásteroids. ┬áThis is the best news that Nike could ask for.

At some point (if it hasn’t happened already), the legions of low-rent lawyers will spring into action against Nike and the retailers for negligently marketing shoes in a manner likely to cause “rush the store” injuries to their pathetic clients.

Orlando police disperse rowdy sneaker seekers.
