Sneaker-heads rioted at a Florida mall this morning and bidding became frantic on eBay as Nike's
latest limited edition sneaker
-- the Foamposite Galaxy -- went on sale today.
At $220 a pair, the shoes are already worth much more on the secondary market. A bidding war has erupted on eBay
with several bids currently at $2,500. This morning, the shoes
sparked a bid of $70,000, however eBay has since removed it.
An angry mob raged into the early morning after a Footlocker at the Florida Mall
in Orlando cancelled the midnight, first-come first-serve release of 200 pairs of the shoe due to "safety concerns."
