Air Jordan 11 Retro “Concord” Causes Insanity

The release of the Air Jordan 11 Retro “Concord” caused chaos around the world last night as thousands of consumers flocked to their local retailer with high hopes of getting their hands on the biggest Air Jordan release of the year. Similar to the release of a new Apple gadget, sidewalks and streets were loaded with kids and adults of all ages, some of whom waited in line for over 72-hours to get their hands on the $180 sneakers. Cops and K-9 units were on hand in most major cities around the US to keep the crowds in check and to ensure everybody’s safety, unfortunately, though, the presence of law enforcement and rent-a-cops didn’t prove to be enough in some areas. Windows were broken and doors were pushed in at several locations, and in Brooklyn a brawl occurred between rowdy consumers outside one of the Foot Locker stores. The story regarding the death of an 18 year-old in Washington D.C. has proven to be nothing more then a rumor.

While it was obviously the safer thing to do, getting the Air Jordan 11 Retro “Concord” online wasn’t much easier then doing so in store. The website for every major retailer was experiencing problems with its servers, causing error pages to pop-up left and right. A lot of these errors occurred while people were checking out, and those who paid with PayPal were noticing that their accounts were being charged even though they never received a confirmation email with an order number, leaving them to wonder if their order went through or if the hunt was still on. Retailers like Finish Line addressed the PayPal issue and stated that if you were charged and your order wasn’t processed, you will be refunded in the next few days. In all honesty though, not even a confirmation email confirms a pair at this time as there’s always the chance the system couldn’t keep up and too many orders were allowed. It wouldn’t be the first time that’s happened. With that being said, if you talked to somebody on the phone or confirmed your purchase with a company representative since receiving your confirmation email, you should be able to rest easy. If you ordered through NikeStore, chances are you’re also good to go as Nike rarely seems to allow too many orders for a single size.

If you got the ass and weren’t able to score a pair online or in-store, now’s the time to grab a pair on eBay. This is a sneaker collectors are going to hold on to, and one that’s going to get more expensive as fewer pairs are available. The asking prices start around $300 and go beyond the $500 mark. A quick search for the Air Jordan 11 Concord brings up over 2,000 results, so there’s plenty of pairs out there for the taking. Maybe you want to ask the grandparents for an advance on your Christmas gift.

Below you’ll find a couple photos we came across of the lines people waited in at various locations, along with a few videos including the one that captured the fight in Brooklyn.
