Ok, Nike is really testing its limits with these crazy azz shoe prices! The company is set to launch NBA star LeBron James new shoe and it’s gonna set you back $315!

As it prepares to launch the $315 basketball shoe, Nike Inc., has come up with new rules for retailers, prompted by unruly crowds outside stores.

The world’s largest sportswear maker told sporting-good stores that they will not be allowed to pre-sell or take reservations for new shoes.

The retailers, which include Foot Locker Inc. and Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc., will also have to give up midnight releases of shoes that had prompted customers to camp outside and stampede stores, the paper reported.

“Retailers should assess what measures are necessary to secure the store and ensure the safetyof personnel and consumers,” the Nike memo said.

Nike said it is raising shoes prices as labor, materials and shipping costs increase. The LeBron James shoe would be its priciest sneaker yet, due in part to its electronics that measure jumps and other performance.

Will you pay for these? Do you think the new rules will stop folks from fighting? (SOURCE)
