Police use pepper spray on crowd waiting for new Jordan shoes


On Friday, a crowd estimated to be between 350 and 400 shoppers eagerly awaited to buy a pair of Nike Air Jordan Retro 11 shoes outside of a mall in Fort Worth, Texas. Those shoppers turned out to be a bit too eager as police were forced to use pepper spray after fights reportedly broke out amongst the mob.

From WFAA:

Upon arriving at the scene, several officers went to the front of the crowd, standing between the doors of the mall and the crowd. At one point, one of the officers yelled out a few words before dousing the shoppers with pepper spray. At least two people were treated at the scene

The shoes, which sell for $185, went on sale for the first day Friday, spurring the long lines. Several stores inside the mall were selling the retro Air Jordans, which some shoppers said sold out in adult sizes not long after the mall opened.


Nobody was arrested.

Perhaps the folks at Nike should borrow the old tag line used by Klondike Ice Cream Bars: "What would you do for a Klondike Bar?" Apparently, fans of Jordan shoes are willing to do anything, even absorbing a dousing of liquid irritant.

    1. You think paying $185 dollars for a pair of shoes is a handout? You must be buying $2000 dollar shoes or something. I own a pair of retro 11s that I ball in a couple times a week. In my opinion they are one of the best basketball shoes ever created, especially the ones with the clear gum rubber soles.

  2. Pepper spray? For people trying to pay $185 for a pair of sneakers, Thorazine would be FAR more appropriate.

      Why don't blacks and mexicans get married, and raise kids? They'd be too lazy to steal.

    2. Those motherfuckers work, they sell crack

    3. Right: they sell crack and their stinky 11 y/old sisters. Too bad they can get on welfare, and "legally" steal our tax dollars. They need to be cut off of their POS Obama welfare, ASAP. If ALL welfare payments would be stopped to ghettos, the crime in the area would stop immediately. Plus, nig breeding would decrease.

      I agree: welfare in ghettos is like feeding rats!

    8. All of you are sad, how do you know if they were employed or not? Now! I could come back at you but it would be a waste of time. Most of you would not have the nerve to look someone in the face and make these statements and to think I served for people like you. Unlike most of you my name is George Curtis and I stand behind my words, do I believe you should spend $185 dollars for a pair sneakers no but it's their right. I make over $150K annually and I don't have a pair, I just hate when people make comments like the ones that posted on this site.

  9. Why do people still equate being on welfare with being Black??? Statistically, it's about equal. SMH

    1. EQUAL? Are you completely insane? The % of blacks on welfare is about 3 times that of whites. You need to stop smoking crack.

  10. Racist bastards!
    Is it cool to stand in line for an iPhone that comes out every year but not a rare pair of shoes?!

    Stereotypical comments by racist white "Americans". I wish all you ignorant bastards were in the first grade and ran into Adam Lanza!

    Those were some of the nicest Jordan's ever, I had a pair when they came out the first time.

  13. This is why I dont feel bad when I see deranged white men doing mass killings on their own. I watch the stuff on the news (columbine, aurora theater shooting, and Newtown)and just laugh. They think they are supreme, but they continue to show that they are 1 step from retardation

    1. You mean 1 step away from being black? You know, more than 10 times more blacks kill other blacks than whites kill whites.
      The only problem, is that the blacks killing blacks number is FAR too low.

  15. Numbers dont lie! There are more white people on welfare than black people. It is my job to study theses statistics. I am a white person, I still beleive that anyone can buy anything they want to as long as it is legal. Some spend 185.00 sneakers and others spend 500.00 on cell phones. The person with the sneakers will have them longer than the person with the phone. The average person keeps their cell phone for about two years. Sneakers on the other hand are mostly collected.

  19. I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everybody else encountering problems with your website. It appears like some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my browser because I've had this happen previously.
