Sneaking around wearing dark clothing and dropping down into a room like some kind of Mission Impossible stunt might sound pretty cool, but guess what? It’s still illegal to cut a hole in the roof of a mall in an attempt to steal pricy sneakers. Cops in Houston say two teenagers were arrested for doing just that in a failed attempt to swipe Air Jordan sneakers.
In a scene similar to some of the bloodthirsty throngs at post-Thanksgiving doorbuster sales, shoppers at a Texas mall grew impatient with waiting for Nike’s new Air Jordan 11 Retro sneakers to go on sale. And thanks to some rotten apples, many in the crowd ended up with mace in the face.
Nike Air Jordans repurposed by artists Brian Jungen into sculptures, pointed to us by ObsessiveConsumption. Some of these resemble dinosaur skulls. Some of them are analogues for the route it takes to get a human on telephone customer service.
