(ABC7) – After hours of waiting in line, hundreds of people who camped outside of The Mall at Prince George’s Friday morning for Nike’s newest Foamposite sneakers were told the release was canceled.
In the early-morning hours, police announced that Friday’s release of the Nike Foamposite Galaxy shoe was canceled due to safety concerns with the huge crowd.
Officers say another release date would be announced at a later time.
Despite the news of the cancellation, long lines remained outside the mall, waiting for the chance to purchase the shoes.
