Violence Everywhere As Fans Line Up for the New Air Jordans

Thousands of frenzied shoe enthusiasts battled it out in long lines all over the country as they wait to be among the first to buy the new retro Air Jordans X1s. They couldn’t wait a few days when the supplies are replenished because they lack self esteem and they need the hideous shoes to impress their friends and boost their own egos. How pathetic.

There are reports of pepper spraying and fisticuffs as lines queued up for hours, and some for days. According to celebrity gossip blog TMZ.com, from Baltimore to Washington to Atlanta, people waiting in lines for the new Nike Air Jordan shoe are getting CRAZY violent — except at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles.

TMZ spoke with several people at the Bev Center who have been waiting in line for hours … and some for days … and they all seem to say the same thing — it’s been cold, but everyone has been extremely cordial.

It seems to be a sharp contrast from other shoe lines across the country — so far, there have been reports of pepper spraying at a mall in Washington, a brawl in Kentucky and girl fights in North Carolina. Source

The shoes have been re-released numerous times over the years. The $180 shoes quickly sold out after midnight today, and are currently selling on eBay for $400.

    Fatkat says:

    This really makes no sense. Back in the 90’s I wore nothing but air jordans. The difference was every shoe cost me $50 no matter the brand.. I chose jordans because I loved mike back in the day, the bulls and basketball. So I chose to buy the $50 shoe that at least Mike wore while playing. At least his shoes didn’t come out every week in different styles or colors. I would not buy air jordans now because my foot has not grown much since the 90’s, the cost is triple the amount, I can get shoes for much cheaper that look way better, the number one reason…I had the shoe already so why would I make a rich man much richer who don’t give a damn. so glad our boys don’t care. We show them pictures of them as babies with the exact same shoe that cost $20 then as well as all baby shoes back then but they cost way more for babies now.
