Fist Fights Erupt Over Latest Nike Air Jordan Sneakers

Posted: Updated:

The release of the latest Nike Air Jordan sneakers brings out big crowd and incidents of violence too. FOX's Dan Bowens reports.

The release of the latest Nike Air Jordan sneaker brought out thongs of crowds across the country and several brawls broke out, too.

Video making the rounds online taken at a shoe store in Stockton, California, shows various fist fights erupting, apparently over the Gamma Blue 11s.

Tempers wore thin after some shoppers waited hours for a chance to buy a pair. The sneakers went on sale on Friday night.

Another fight reportedly broke out outside a Foot Locker on E. 151st St. in the Bronx between a group of women.

"It was two lines. It was kids and adults. The adults were a little crazy," said Miyah Rogers, 11, of Queens who purchased her Air Jordans in Harlem.

She was given a ticket to come back at a later date to purchase the in-demand sneakers.

Rogers' mother, Glenda Irby, said paid $185 for the new kicks.

"I tried them on. They're very comfortable," said the retail manager.

The Jordan 11s are the most popular line of Jordans.
