In an all-too-common occurance in today's sneaker world, another launch has been shut down due to safety concerns. This time, it happened at the Levi's SoHo location for the release of its collaborative Air Jordan 4.
The heavily hyped sneaker was scheduled to release at select retailers across the country today, and chaos, almost predictibly, marred the event at the NYC flagship. According to Complex, it was then shut down by the NYPD.
In a tweet by Levi's, the brand said that the launch had been postponed until further notice at this site, however "sales are as planned for all other stores."
An update on our #Levis x @Jumpman23 collaboration. Due to overwhelming demand and for the safety of our fans and store employees, we're postponing the release at our SoHo, NYC store until further notice. Stay tuned for more details. Sales are as planned for all other stores. pic.twitter.com/mNk80XvkvB— Levi's® (@LEVIS) January 17, 2018
