Thousands lined up across the country to shell out $180 for the black and white “J’s” that went on sale at midnight.
Police were called to shopping centers in Indiana, Florida, Texas and Virginia among other states to control crowds of hundreds lining up for the shoes.
The shoes were widely released and are available at stores such as Foot Locker and Champs, in addition to Nike stores.
Air Jordans bring in an estimated $1 billion for Nike every year.
One death has “allegedly” been reported over the shoe frenzy. It seems American’s will stand in line for a pair of shoes, rather than vote!
