What is wrong with you people? Fighting, trampling, rioting, all over a pair of sneakers? You do realize that they’re just shoes, right? They’re just something that covers your feet. They’re not worth injuries or brawls. Come on now.
Below we have a recap of the disturbing stories from around the country where arrests, frenzies, or fights took place because of the pursuit of Air Jordan 11s. The video below gets real ghetto, real fast. I recommend watching at the 1:00 mark:
