Whenever they get released, a lot of people form crazy lines outside shopping malls or shoe stores that carry Air Jordan shoes, a lot of them camp out for days, weeks, and fights have broken out inside the stores, people rushing, storming inside the way and literally breaking down the doors, one incident sadly involved a fatal shooting of a man in Houston, Texas, while i'm sure other shootings have happened too, also a woman leaving her toddler children inside the car, and when being interviewed by the Police, she acted confused, there is even a video of it, i'll have links for the stories, incidents.

But seriously, WHY THE HELL ARE THE JORDAN 11'S SO CRAZILY POPULAR THAT PEOPLE ARE SO HUNGRY FIGHT-TOOTH AND NAIL DESPERATE TO HAVE THEM!?!?!?!?!?!?!?, they are just shoes, geeze.

Here are some of the links of the incidents:

here is a news article from when they were released, a woman was assaulted by a man, and her new Jordan 11's Legend Blue were stolen, and a 16-year boy in Ohio was shot and killed trying to rob someone of them, I don't really have sympathy for him since he brought it upon himself:Woman mugged over rare Air Jordans: 'He put me in a choke hold' | Local & Regional | Seattle News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News | KOMO News

I've.read that these are one of michaels favorite shoes and were released during the high points in his career. Aesthetically it was one of the first to use the shiny patent leather and I thought I remember Michael liking it because he could use that with his tux.

As for me I'm an Air Jordan III fan.
