What is the big deal about a pair of sneakers?

Don't get me wrong, Michael Jordan is awesome.

But I will never understand why people will stand out in the blistering cold, getting into fights, and SHOOTING over a pair of shoes.

If you don't know what I am talking about, the new Retro Jordan 11s came out to the public today. I'm sorry, the shoe is ugly, I don't like the cheap black plastic part. I wear Jordans too, but I only have purchased two pairs in my lifetime. And I am lucky enough to wear kids sizes so I don't pay much. And the fact that the new Jordans were available to pre-order makes the whole thing even more ridiculous.

  • Preordering shoes in and of itself sounds ridiculous because how do you know if the shoes are sized correctly?

    • I guess you really don't know unless you wear Nike or Jordan shoes all the time.

    • Very true, because no two sneakers in one pair are the exact same, let alone a full size run of them.

    • When I switched from NIke Air Monarch IIIs to Nike Free TR2 crosstrainers I had to change size because they weren't sized the same even though they were both Nikes.

  • As long as people still like Jordans, I will continue to buy them, and sell it to them at a profit. LOL

    I personally don't like the sneakers myself, I'm more of a converse/DrMarten guy

  • To look "cool". I almost bought the bordeaux 7s when they came out and thank God I didn't. Wasn't sure what I was thinking at the time but it seems as though everyone who wears jordans dress alike and I hate dressing like other people.
