Any of you ever been involed in Jordan release date riots?
I can remember when the Grapes released last year. The line up at the store started before 6am it was at least 50 + deep by the time the doors openned. People were shoving the gate as soon as the lights in the store came on. Mall security was called, but they were no match. Only 18 pairs of shoes were available for purchase and they locked us in. Once they were sold out, it was still a crowd outside the gate
with cats telling their marks that they were going to rob them.
Police showed up just so we could make it to our cars unscarred :lol:


Anyone else been part of a Jordan Release Riot?

Well I live in CT anf for the most part every release date for me has been fine(even the grapes, only five pairs at my store)but when the DMP released it was kinda crazy. I knew it was gonna be crazy so me and my boy took a trip downtown around 6 a.m. when we got there a dude in beemer was there and asked our shoe size(he also stated he had a gun just in case someone tried to act up) to make sure we did'nt take his size. After a few hours there were about 50 people outside waitng. Everything was cool until they were about to open....the thing is the store had 2 doors, me and my boy were technically in the front of the line cuz we were the first ones there but the store decided to open the other door..the line went into complete madness with people pushing and going crazy...luckily for myself about and hour or two before some lady and her husband showed up and seen we were in front(she was laughing at my cuz i was wearing sandals in the cold)at the time the door opened and the people went crazy tht same lady made her way in front and was pushing all the dudes back and she was screaming noooo! they were here first! Thhe store then closed the door and opened the door I was in front of...there were only 4 pairs and thanks to tht lady I got my pair(my and the beemer guy did'nt get theres..did'nt have there size)

Nope, that's why getting in good with the managers is a good thing. My shoes are held for me on release day, I just go and cop mine about an hour after the store has opened. No worries about lines, not getting my pairs or riots.

On the DMP release day my friend got stabbed in the arm for one of my sets and his. Hopefully he was not hurt badly. I still have this DMP pack today, it means something special to me.

naw not riots but when J's come out and its a "major" color police are there for security. i remember when the blk and red 12's came out in 97' fools were running in the mall to get to the shoe stores ( grown men running alongside teenagers).
