More than 150 “sneakerheads” lined up, many overnight Friday, for a chance to pick up a NOLA exclusive. A pair of first edition Nike SB “Trumpet High” sneakers from Humidity skate store in the French Quarter.
Designed by the jazz-inspired kicks are only available here in New Orleans until Sept. 22, when they will go on sale on Nike.com for $110.
Collectors not only were able to snag a pair of the metallic gold-colored shoes but also a limited edition trumpet case box that was available only during the initial release Saturday.
Within hours pairs were already reselling in excess of $1000 online.
