Eyes on the Street: Shoe release at Tier Nightclub sews up Central

We often get photographs and tips from our Bungalower readers of things that are happening around town, so we have started featuring them on the site in a series called Eyes on the Street, in honor of our favorite urbanist Jane Jacobs.

“Not sure what it’s for but this line wraps the block around onto Central” – Alistair
A couple thousand shoe shoppers descended on Tier Nightlub in Downtown Orlando [GMap] this morning as part of an event, hosted by The Trophy Room (Website).

The star of the event was the KAWS Air Jordan 4, which retails for $350, and just hit the market today. They’re already being sold on eBay for anywhere between $1,500 to $23,000. Local police told Bungalower that some entrepreneurs were hiring homeless individuals to stand in line and save them a space so they could go back and buy more shoes, as a limit was being imposed on the shoppers.

Kaws (Instagram) is the name of the street artist/designer behind the shoe, real name Brian Donnelly. He has also designed for Hennessy and Kanye West.
