While this year’s Black Friday reached a record-breaking $3 billion USD in sales, with $1 billion USD coming from mobile devices alone, it appears the success of the post-Thanksgiving holiday was not met without a few sacrifices. Nike participated in the retail event with releases of the KD 9 “Dark Obsidian” and Air Foamposite Pro “Dr. Doom” but one of its outlet locations was unfortunately overturned by a mass of frenzied shoppers. The Nike outlet at Seattle Premium Outlets was utterly destroyed when people came and simply left the merchandise on the floor. As a result, obstacle courses of orange sneaker boxes filled the aisles leaving employees and other shoppers completely overwhelmed. Take a look at some of the images from social media posted below.
