Classic Jordans Released...Folks Go Wild

Well just in time for the NBA season opener the classic Air Jordan 11's-aka "Concords" were released. Now ANY shoe Jordan has released is always filled with hype, long lines and usually sellout within minutes. Yet when it comes to this pair, people seem to go all out. These were the pair that Stern fined Jordan for in his comeback season as they "were not in the color scheme of the team" (Jordan was also fined for switching to No. 23 during the playoffs during the '95 season.

The following season he rocked them enroute to leading the Bulls to an NBA-record 72 wins. So put all of that with the sleek design of the shoe and release it oh what 14 years later and your going to have mayhem across the country, that released date was today and well...folks lost their mind..

Via the AJC... "DeKalb police arrested a woman who left two children, ages 2 and 5, in a car while she went inside to buy a pair of the $180 Nike Air Jordan “Concords.”

Now leaving your kids in the car for J's isn't maybe the smartest thing but we ask how long were you there, maybe those kids were sleep by the time you could get in the line.

We love the kicks and would love to have them but at the rate that some are going to obtain a pair is just insane to say the least.

As Dad told me in 1996.... "Son you don't have to have them today, trust me they will come out again". Oh he was right but they are even more insane measures that you have to go through to get them and they are going for $200 (were rounding up) which is more than what they went for in 1996.
