As many as 300 people turned out Friday morning hoping to get their hands on the Nike Air Foamposite Galaxy sneakers.
Early this morning, as many as 300 young people, some with their parents, gathered in line at Prince George's County Plaza, hoping to get their hands on the new Nike Air Foamposite Galaxy shoes.
The retail price of the limited edition Nike shoes is $220, but a handful can be found on eBay selling for over $1,000. One pair was found for an asking price of $2,500.
Disappointment came over the crowd around 6 a.m., when they were told the sale had been cancelled until further notice. While some left, a smaller crowd stayed, hopeful the sale would resume.
Several dozen Prince George's County and Hyattsville police officers remained in the area to for safety precautions and crowd control.
