It seems nothing says more than one has arrived than a new pair of Michael Jordan shoes, or to be exact the new Air Jordan 11 Retro Gamma Blue.
Yet in their eagerness to scoop up a pair and become their own iconic hero, shoppers went on to beat the crap out of each other this weekend as nerves got the better of some shoppers.
The shoes which are retailing for a not so cheap $185 and have arrived just in time for Christmas (naturally) have led to a dizzy array of instances of shoppers pummeling each other. Instances which can be seen in the videos below.
Although no one managed to get arrested this time, last year saw one 22-year-old man, Joshua Woods fatally shot after he and a friend bought newly released Jordans at a Houston mall. His friend only managed to escape by heading to a neighbor’s home.
The below video uploaded by Instagram user omgitsfez goes on to capture the mayhem over the shoes inside a Finish Line shoe store in Stockton, Calif.
In another instance The New York Post went on to report that in the Bronx at a Footlocker outlet on 151th Street and Third Avenue fights between teenage girls spilled out onto the street.
Isn’t it time you knocked yourself out for the status you know you deserve too…?
