The new Nike shoes are on sale, and some Houstonians waited in line for days to be the first to have a pair.

About 40 people waited outside a Foot Locker in north Houston overnight.

One man said he'd been in line since Tuesday to make sure he gets the limited release foamposite Galaxy basketball shoes. Some want the shoes for themselves, but for others, it's a business opportunity. One shopper says the shoes can sell online on e-Bay for up to $3,000.

The Galaxy sneakers carry a $220 price tag in the store. Nike says the Galaxy theme is a nod to the space industry around Orlando, which is hosting the All-Star game this weekend.
