A passerby captured photos of desperate sports gear fans queued outside the shop before midnight last night.

Priced at £179.99, the latest batch vanished within just 45 minutes with up to 150 camped outside when staff arrived at 6am, a manager at Princes Street's Foot Locker branch confirmed.

Speaking to the Evening News, the manager, who wished to remain anonymous, commented: "We sold out just as quick this morning as the previous release - it was crazy. I'd estimate there were at least 150 people outside when we first arrived at 6am.

"Gone are the days of standing, though, they were very prepared and some had professional camping gear."

It is understood that the Footlocker store will receive a new batch of the popular trainers in July, but an exact date has yet to be confirmed.
