Air Jordan Concords

New Air Jordans Spark Frenzy, Possible Death


(AllHipHop News) The Air Jordan XI Retro Concords were officially released today (December 23), to a frenzy of anxious sneaker enthusiasts looking to purchase the heavily anticipated sneakers.

Despite the positive attention the shoes have garnered from fans of the Air Jordan series of shoes, there have also been several instances of fighting and even death over the shoes.

According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, in Tukwila, Washington just outside of Seattle, approximately 20 people were sprayed by police during a fight that ensued, as customers were waiting for the new shoes.

Police have also been called to shopping malls in Florida, Indiana, Texas and Virginia to control the crowds, ABC News reported.

“I don’t remember anything like this in the recent past at all, definitely not with the iPhone or anything like that,” Linda Jackson, a spokeswoman for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, explained to ABCNews.com.

In New Jersey, one shopper told MyFoxPhilly that a fellow shopper had threatened gunfire if he didn’t get the shoes.

The Air Jordan XI Retro Concord hype reached its height with reports about the death of an 18-year-old named Tyreek Amir Jacobs.

The report is allegedly a hoax according to the Baltimore Sun, although a memorial page dedicated to Jacobs claims the death is real.

    “I don’t remember anything like this in the recent past at all, definitely not with the iPhone or anything like that,”
    In other words, iphone doesn’t bring the inner n*gga out of people like a fresh pair of Js does. Come on black people, we’re embarrassing ourselves at every turn now. The levels of coonery are at an all time high.

    • MrTroyMercy

    This is the dumbest thing I’ve seen since Black Friday. A bunch of people ready to kill over a pair of sneakers that they only want so they can show off to their friends. Conspicuous consumption is a huge vice that’s hardly ever addressed, and Nike pisses me off when they drop damn near the same product every couple months and push it as a must have. They’re just as bad as Apple when it comes to brainwashing consumers into believing that their life will be incomplete without the newest product that they have available. Sickening.

  • Realist4200

     motherfcking facepalm. And over some bullsh!t shoes that cost $10 dollars to make, but get sold at 10, 20, 30+ times their production price? Get your priorities straight, we got real sh!t to deal with right now. F#ck some ugly ass over priced shoes. I had somebody asking me to lend them $100 towards that shit so dude could get over to the store at 4am to wait for that sh!t. SMFH. It’s Christmas, get your FAM something with that money.. or at least get your self something worth the time, money and effort.

    Shit is Sad… I walked past the Footlocker Around My Way with Red and White Joints on that i still got from 2001. The bottom are a bit yellow but the Condition is still great. Niggas did’nt even want the concord’s no more. I laugh at them Niggas pointing like Bitches. I told em straight.. I still got my Concords from 2000 albiet yellow bottom from age and i got a Pair of Concords on Deck from the Defining moments package that look better with the Gold Jumpman and Gold tags. No need to cop anymore mikes. I got the most important ones. I fell victim to Mike’s scheme. Of course i treated myself back then but now.. no more. My Kids have no rec center or Jordan scholarship programs… This Nigga is raping and plundering his own for Global domination. $2.00 kicks sold at 300X more than what its worth is a no Go for me.  Whats hurts even more is the quality is not as good as the original.. We Need to wake up learn to hold our money like the jews.

    • Boyenyc Media

      Now this is a true statement, if I’ve ever read

      • SDS_Overfiend

        Little Niggas forever trying to Tell the O.G.’s some bullshit. Yes i can say i treated myself to Kicks before i had Kids.. At 30 a nigga should’nt be thirstin’ to buy Jordans no more. I had people in different sneakers stores who hooked me up for a lil extra on the side. Now i gave that Connect up to the kids.. They can get a few jordans here and there.

      • its not my fault u had kids…and cant treat urself No more lol
        because u were the same kid out there for sneakers, So now that ur not doing it u have to hate on it. SMH some people 

      • Undergodwigiboard

        you my friend are the typical nigga from the block..a true dummy. The man didn’t say don’t treat yourself but he did say why kill each other or thirst over some overpriced shoes? do you see white people buying jordans you idiot(yet they have the money)…cant you understand what the guy was trying to say?

      • MADNEWYORKER914

        @bernie, you need to listen when somebody is trying to drop some jewels on you!!! You seem like the type of dude who would work all month just to spend your money on bullschitt to make another person rich!!! Everything he said is on point!!! I knew somebody back in the day that would hook us up with J’s for$25 as soon as they came out!!!

    • u sayin hold ur money…but u just said u had the old one’s….so what are u really sayin, u just didnt get them this year, GTFOH. 

      • SDS_Overfiend

        Yes the old ones when I was on that bullshit. Thats the difference. Especially economically. Nor did I spend 250.

      I purchased the ORIGINAL white on white Jordans way back in 85 before the “Jumpman” logo was invented. I copped mine for $65 from KP Kong on 145th street and Broadway in Manhattan. The very next year Jordans were $90 and this is when the carnage began. Much like 8 Ball jackets and Sony Walkmans, I have seen (and heard about) many of my inner city youth (black youth and other) murdered or injured over a product. I don’t rock with Mike because he had the power back in the 80s to either control the price of the sneaker to make them less of a product to kill for or at the very lease make a public service announcement urging the inner city youth to stop the senseless violence that was/is associated with his product. Well, as we know, he did nothing and his father died violently. Seems as if the same cycle is being repeated. My brothers and sisters, if you can wear them to a job interview, a wedding or to worship then you don’t need to pay a ton of money on sneakers. Get your effing life right!!

      • SDS_Overfiend

        For real…  8 balls should’ve been sold with a gun the way cats was coming at people heads for them joints. On the Flipside.. You paid 65 bucks for Mikes? Damn inflation is a mohterfucker. Truth be told Mike did play himself by not issuing press for violence cause by the falllout of buying his sneakers. As far as his father dying.. thats some other shit we gotta speak on face to face. Shit like this is the reason why a middle class don’t exist. Because middle class can never make the upper class richer. Only the Lower class. See the cycle in that.. Hook line and sinker.

    • MADNEWYORKER914

      So true my brother!!!  I guess we all acted like that back when we were younger!!! I still remember when “Jordans” first came out back in the 80’s, and people thought that they were ugly until they found out how much they cost!!!  All of a sudden they liked them because of  a $100 price tag!!! Schitt, I even remember when “Filas” first hit the hood in the 80’s, and they were almost $100 dollars, but niggas wouldn’t even think about buying those joints today!!! I feel you on keeping those old “Jordans”, because I still have a pair of Vince Carters fist joints that came out back in the 90’s, those “Shox” joints, and they still look like I just took them out of the box!!! Every thing comes back in style!!!

  • water_ur_seeds

    I got 2 pairs of them yesterday… Got the last pair in 2 different shops lol

    Its all a scam to push the product. If they really cared about the consumer, they would have had tickets. Buy you shit in advance, show up to pick up. No line, no 1st come 1st serve bs. One day you dumb asses that are jumping when the machine says jump will reconize the powerer you have. Don’t get me wrong, think Jordan is the best thing to ever touch a b-ball, but he ain’t had love for the game, since his father died. And with all that being said, they still won’t let the man be a majority owner of his own team. I know what you gonna scream, he owns the bobcats. No he is a minority owner in the bobcats, with 50 other mf’s. Remember, he tried to be Indiana when the team was up for sale years back. They said Nigga get out of here with that.

    So for you dumb niggas that make 1000 a month, that run and spend 200 on some J’s and wait in line like a dame fool. Remember, real niggaz that got money (like myself) won’t waste the time or ends on some bs. Don’t get me wrong, if you got it, and you want it, get it; but don’t take food out you shorties mouth for some bs, from a nigga that don’t give a damn. Oh and to you that are on that, “I saw my favorite rapper with them shit’s so I want them” lol, idiot he didn’t pay a cent or wait in line. They pay him to wear the shits.

    • SDS_Overfiend

      Speak on it Brother… Not to mention they are limited edition. Only a few pairs was made. Secondly stores only hold about 30 pairs. Secondly For these Bum ass Niggas who Co-Sign standing inline at a commercial store like Footlocker, Here in NY mom and pop stores been let these shits go for 50 bucks extra 2 to 3 weeks in advance. Only a idiot waits in line for kicks.

    • MADNEWYORKER914

      You sound like a very intelligent brother!!!

  • rep87
