Simpson at Maple
A growing trend of young people purchasing limited offerings of expensive shoes and reselling them, usually over the internet, turned out badly this past weekend for a 23-year-old Northbrook vendor when he tried to deliver shoes to a client near the Northwestern University campus in Evanston.
When the offender handed over $750 for the shoes, at the intersection of Simpson Street and Maple Avenue, the victim replied that the price was more than that, at which point, police said, the offender whipped out a handgun and demanded not only the shoes and the cash, but the victim’s cell phone as well.
The offender then fled the scene in his vehicle. The shoes involved were Yeezy 700 by Adidas, Vapor off white by Nike, and Presto off white by Nike. The incident occurred at about 9:30 p.m. Friday.
