NYPD Shut Down Supreme x Nike Foamposite 1 Release

suupreme nypd

Remember Monday, when we posted about the Supreme x Nike Air Foamposite 1 release and we suggested that anyone hoping to grab a pair “pull out your sleeping bags and stock up on protein bars NOW”? Well, looks like that slumber party’s a bust. The New York’s SoHo store tonight got so crazy — with sneakerheads and resellers crowding not only the sidewalks, but spilling over the metal barricades and into busy Lafayette St, too — that the NYPD deemed the scene a “public safety concern” and shut down the in-store launch.

With a makeshift sign stuck to the storefront window (above) and in a more official statement posted to Instagram, Supreme explained:

Due to concern for public safety, NYPD has forced us to not sell the Supreme/Nike Foamposites and accompanying clothing in our New York Store. These items will be available on supremenewyork.com tomorrow at 11am EST. -Supreme

There’s no word yet on the the rest of the scheduled in-store drops (Dover St. Market in New York, LA or London), but MissInfo.com’s insiders assure that the store stocked more than enough sneakers for everyone. We — or NY’s Channel 7 News, who also appear to be on the case — will be sure to keep you updated.
