Seven guys sitting in the rain on G Street in front of Ground Zero Clothing & Board Shop attracted some attention Thursday.

They were waiting for a pair shoes. Not just any pair of shoes. They were waiting for the Nike SB Diamond Dunk High Tiffany collector’s shoe.

After being kicked out by police for camping in front of Sacramento shoe stores, they brought their umbrellas and portable chairs to the more friendly sidewalks of Davis, where the police reportedly told them they could wait under the awning next door to keep dry, and where they received free pizza from Woodstock’s Pizza.

“It’s early bird gets the worm, yo,” said Jon Murphy, 23, of South Sacramento, who arrived Wednesday night.

Sitting with him was Sergio Hernandez, 20, of Sacramento.

“I don’t have an umbrella, but I’m sleeping kinda good in my car — a grandma car, nice ‘n’ spacey,” said Hernandez, who arrived at 10 a.m. Thursday. “Getting this shoe means a lot because I missed the Low (as in Diamond Dunk Low, released 2005) — but I’ll get them. I’m gonna get them.”

A pair of “Tiffanies” sell for $108 at Ground Zero, but they’ll bring $400 to $750 on eBay.

The shoes will be available when the store opens at 11 a.m. Saturday, said store manager Seth Sternin.

“We only have 16 pairs,” he said. “By this time tomorrow we’ll probably have 16 people in line.”

When asked if he would buy a pair himself, Sternin added: “We have to wait in line just like everyone else. But it’s more important to sell them to the customer, especially if they’re waiting in line for days.”
