Dabney is a Southern-born, New England-raised, current Midwesterner who writes about design, obsesses over dogs, and can easily read a book a day. Last week Nike announced that a special edition of its version 10 LeBron James sneakers would be sold for $315 retail. I grew up in the ’80s and ’90s when people were regularly robbed or killed for Nike sneakers.
In 1990, both Sports Illustrated and The New York Times ran articles about sneaker killings.
We now live in a country peppered with not only sneaker violence but also violent flash mobbing, iPhone thefts and a tremendous amount of school bullying. As evidenced by my recent Twitter activity, this debate can be argued all day without resolution. While we all prepare for the release of the shoes, let’s all remember that we live in a violent world.
We hope this information proves helpful to anyone needing to get a basic sense of how much something costs, and how much you can expect to pay to hire someone.


Aside from the absurdity of charging three hundred dollars for sneakers, it strikes me as profoundly irresponsible to sell basketball shoes for this price given the nation’s history of sneaker violence. When Air Jordans rose above $100 per pair, it was like dangling steak in front of the eyes of unruly young people in the D.C.
Just as recently as five days ago, Hypebeast ran a similar story that referenced 2008 stabbings in the U.K. Quoted several times in one New York Times op-ed, Lee believes that materialism and the breakdown of the family structure are to blame. Given that reality, how can Nike charge $300 for sneakers without considering the wellbeing of their consumers?
But I think it is naive for us to expect a nation rife with absent parents and violence to uphold this responsibility. Unfortunately, we should expect violence to follow the release and purchase of the LeBrons. A good friend of mine sent me the Tumblr link to pages and pages of pictures of the sneakers being posted by young people all over the country. However, the one thing I am sure of is that we should be ready for a rise in sneaker violence following the release of the LeBron X shoes. Furthermore, parents must take an active role in preventing their kids from being unsafe with the shoes or acting out violently to attain them.


While i do not agree with the National Urban League’s insistence that the shoes not be released or bought, I do think Nike should think harder about pricing in the future.
While it may be true that materialism and a lack of solid parenting are the root causes of sneaker killings, Nike is not excused for continuing to sell a product that it knows causes such violence at such ludicrous prices. While the market may bear the cost of Nike’s new and other sneakers, it must consider the reality of violence in America before releasing the next luxury sneaker. If the responsibility lies solely with parents and kids, then what is to be done about flash mobbing in Philadelphia — where innocent kids are beaten ruthlessly by mobs of teenagers for no reason? Unlike earlier releases of LeBron James’ sneakers, Nike knows it hit a marketing and design homerun with its new release. Lastly, organizations like the Urban League should talk openly about materialism in the Black community, provide financial literacy classes and work with the police to organize against potential violence at places where kids might wear the sneakers. Hopefully, Nike will do better in the future when considering pricing for any further releases of high-value shoes.
Kids will be clamoring for these shoes and in a world where kids have jobs and expendable income, they will buy them.
