How cute. They have even come up with a name for themselves. Sneakerheads.
The latest Air Jordan tennis shoes have hit the stores today and priced at just under $200 they have become the hottest must have necessity for a certain sector of our society. This may surprise you since we are constantly being told that this same sector is “economically challenged and deprived”.
In Atlanta, a women leaves her two kids in a car to partake in the shoe feeding frenzy, while in the video you can see a man proudly proclaim that he represents a culture. This after busting down the doors to a mall to get to the shoes.
In Charlotte, North Carolina, there were fights and the need to call for some medics.
In Louisville, Kentucky, more trampling of people and fights.
I guess the good news out of this is that unlike those so-called flash mobs, these folks do seem to be paying for the shoes.
The 1% thank you!
