All that for sneakers.  Between that and all the Black Friday problems makes me feel good about gamers.  Every time I had waiting in line over night or for midnight release never seen a problem.  When at PAX East last year during the evening events would see Hotel security in the background but they never had to deal with anything.   I am sure they loved it since never really had to deal with anything and was easy shift for them.

Underprivileged urban gangsters that would shoot you for nothing, tend to be just a *tad* more aggressive than video game nerds.

There's a study somewhere where I read that.

All for sneakers that cost 35 cents to make. And blood. And unreported rape. And a bit of death.

All for THESE ugly ass shoes?!

I would've thought that shit was tacky when I was a fucking five-year old getting shoes with lights in them.  What the fuck?  Are these people retarded?

Those shoes are dope, not my style as I'm not that flamboyant, but dope nonetheless. That said I'd never camp out for shoes.

You have horrible taste and should have your balls scraped off.  Those shoes are fucking disgustingly lame.  Like something an autistic kid would think is cool.  And I'm being dead serious.  Those shoes are probably the UGLIEST pieces of shit I've ever seen an adult actually want to wear.

Holy shit those are awful shoes. When I camped out for the PS3, I had a few guys drive by and offer a few hundred dollars for it on top of system cost. I thought that was ridiculous. Then,

on Craigslist, someone offered a car -- a 1996 Cavalier -- for a pair, with others prepared to pay $2,400.

That's your opinion. I don't really see the reason for the personal attacks though.

Yes those are quite possibly the ugliest shoes ever created.  I'm proud to say I live very very close to the mall in Decatur(Atlanta) where folks rioted for the new air jordons at Christmas.  Not quit sure why these thugs get such a bad rap :rolleyes:  though. We've seen white suburbanites pound each other over elmo dolls, Wiis and cheap LCDs at Walmart plenty of times. Just different cultures folks.

Oh no, that's all he's capable of.

Those retro Jordans from the other mob scene WERE awesome, though. These are...interesting. I just don't have much in the closet that would match them.

^ Agree and just amazing how people in groups react to stuff like this.  Just do a google search for Black Friday store openings and see how bad people can be.

Just don't see a riot for Mass Effect 3 by gamers waiting in line.

Everyone's hobby is insane to an outsider.  While I think it's insane to camp out for shoes, they would probably think I was a lunatic for clearing out space in my house for a Smash TV cabinet.

P.S. if you have a Smash TV cabinet that you're looking to get rid of...
And YOU, you that call yourselves Collectors.  Until now you have all sustained fantasies in which you are the maltreated heroes of your own stories.  Comforting daydreams in which, ultimately, you are shown to be in the right.  No more.  For all of you the dream is over.  I have taken it away.  For this is my judgment on you:  that you shall know, at all times, and forever, exactly what you are.  And you shall know just how little that means.

I can see camping outside to wait for shoes.  Lots of people really like shoes.

I cannot, however, justify spending money, let alone waiting in line, LET ALONE GETTING IN A RIOT, over those piece of shit shoes.  Those are so god-awful tacky.  Like something a gay pimp would wear.

Yet you wouldn't even have the sack to make eye contact with the types that wear them, never mind tell them how you feel about their shoes. Ha.

If you're so tuff why don't you drive into the hood and start making fun of anyone that wears tacky basketball shoes. Let us know when you're out of the hospital and don't have to eat through a straw.

Gotta love the chest puffing nerds... you even flinch at Xbob and he would take a quick 3 steps back, haha.

Wait...  So these shoes aren't ugly to you, because you'd get shot if you said they were?

Now we know exactly what kind of coward you are.

Well I'm not into basketball shoes, so no, I would not wear them. But no, I could easily see someone making those shoes look good. You know, someone who has a sense of style and wears nice clothing.

Oh, easily, the amazing foam, the technicolor dreamcoat galaxy print, clearly it's a masterpiece of clothing and not just ghetto dwellers flocking to whatever Nike has shat out.

You can defend this shit all you want -- that's all you have, after all, is vainly defending garbage on the 'net, but it's shit.  It's garbage, and it looks like ass.

Strap four of those shoes onto a Unicorn that shoots rainbows out of its arse and they might not look so bad.

Electronics...exciting. Games...ztory and killer multiplayer. Books...understandable. Shoes..?

At least with the aforementioned items they are all things we will get a lot out of and maybe impact our lives, whether it be making life easier (electronics) or taking us to unimaginable worlds (media).

Shoes...? You put them on your feet. You don't even look at your feet that often, and most others tend to look at faces when looking...shoes maybe a moment.

So..wat? I get that shoes are awesome and can make you feel like a new person, but camping for shoes? There are more kinds of shoes than people, for crying out loud. It's not like the shoes have rockets to help you fly.

That's way better.  Still tacky and sixth-gradeish, but much nicer overall.

You're still wearing a big stupid piece of foam on your feet, though.
