    You'll never see people rioting over Air LeBrons, the loser.

    They'll riot an hour before the store opens, then disappear when they unlock the doors.

    80s nostalgia strikes again. I wonder if Tiffany was playing at any of those malls.

    I had a pair of the *original* Air Jordans in '86. Apparently I should have kept them: http://compare.ebay.com/like/170658545472?var=lv&ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar

    It is kind of funny that the NBA's current marketing frenzy involves the man who was by far the most anti-player figure of the entire labor mess.

    If you go that apeshit over basketball shoes, you deserve what you get.

    Same here. My mom got them for me for the first day of junior high. I felt so cool walking in them for the first day of class.

    And then ... junior high and high school were all downhill from there.

    Really sad how there is such a pent up demand for this item. I love sneakers but to desire to be the 1st to have them? Really?
