Crowds at NY store for new Nike shoe dispersed by police

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Apr 3, 2014

It's not the first time that the release of a new sneaker has led to trouble.

A store in New York's SoHo neighborhood had to cancel the sale of a new Nike sneaker Wednesday night after hundreds of people showed up to buy it.

New York police were brought in to close down the street and break up the crowd.

Streetwear giant Supreme New York teamed up with Nike for the new Nike Air Foamposite 1 launch.

The $250 red and black shoes were scheduled to go on sale Thursday morning in New York, Los Angeles, London and online.

The store in SoHo was the only place on the East Coast where the sneaker could be bought in a store.

The shoes can also be purchased on Supreme's website.
