According to recent estimates, the sneaker resale market is valued at approximately $1 billion. Yep, that’s billion with a “b.” Again, for those limited-edition releases, each store gets anywhere from a dozen to 100 pairs of shoes. So entrepreneurial sneakerheads—usually with their friends in tow—purchase them with the intent to sell them on eBay soon thereafter and, again, for much more than the original selling price.

The terrorists have won. At least according to the Internet hordes decrying Sony’s move to drop the release of “The Interview” on Christmas Day.
It certainly didn’t help that theater chains across the country were refusing to show the comedic tale about a plot to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, but there may also have been a legal motive. As The New York Times reports, lawsuits filed after the theater massacre in Aurora, Colorado, may have set the stage for Sony’s decision.
