A 15-year-old teen was shot in his foot for cutting line at a Brooklyn Foot Locker.

The victim, identified by friends as Isaiah Martinez, was shot early Saturday as he tried to buy a pair of Kanye West Air Yeezys.

Martinez apparently cut a long line of eager customers looking to buy the new Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Yeezy” sneakers moments before the 6 a.m. shooting.

“There were people camped out for the sneakers and Isaiah tried to cut the line,” said Edison Cartagena, 21, who described himself as a friend of Martinez told the NY Daily news.

Those waiting in line were outraged that Martinez tried to cut line. Someone demanded that he go back to the end of the line. The two got into an argument that ended with Martinez being shot in the foot.

The teen was taken to the hospital with a non life-threatening wound.

A witnesses says Isaiah mouthed off to the shooter before bullets started flying.

“I guess he tried to get tough with one of the guys he cut,” said witness Jayson Roque, 23, who works at a nearby GameStop. “One of them left and came back with a gun and shot him.

Cops were still searching for the gunman Saturday night.

Workers at the Foot Locker wouldn’t comment on the shooting, which delayed the store’s opening until 11 a.m.

By 6 p.m., a sign posted on the store announced that they had run out of Nikes as well as the new Air Jordans that were released the same day.
