Hackers, this is what happens when you piss sneakerheads in China off.
The alleged hackers were confronted and beaten at a mall by local sneakerheads after obtaining 80 pairs of Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Zebra” through illegal means.
Apparently, they exploited a loophole in the Adidas Confirmed app, allowing them to purchase more than one pair of sneakers.
Posted by Pinoe77 on Instagram, the video (see above) shows the “hackers” being attacked by an angry mob near the bottom of an escalator. Numerous 350 shoeboxes can also be seen scattered on the floor.
The caption accompanying the video reads: “The story goes like this. Some hackers broke adidas confirmed over in China and won 80ish pairs of Zebras. The squad wasn’t happy about that and fucked up the plugs. #greed”
For those unaware, Adidas brought back the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 “Zebra” last week. First launched in February 2017, it’s one of the most coverted pairs of sneakers today.
Did they deserve the beating? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
