The latest episode chronicling the depravity that is engaged in over footwear takes us back to New York City where a would-be sneaker seller was stabbed by his customers.
According to law enforcement, the 17and 18-year-old victims planned on selling his shoes to a group of fellows he met on social media. However, when it came time to conduct the transaction, the three men they met with showed their intent was not to buy the shoes but to rob the teens. The sellers put up a fight until one of the bandits pulled a knife and slashed the 18-year-old in the shoulder and escaped to the streets above.
