Here’s a video of one lucky bastard. He managed to get the new Space Jam XI 2009 shoes (aka the Space Jam Jordans) back in August for $175. For everyone else, the shoes come out today.
The retail price of the shoes was supposed to be $175. However, because of the demand for the shoes, some stores are raising their prices to as high as $250.
Don’t get me wrong, I loved the movie Space Jam and Air Jordans are a kick-ass shoe- but for $250 I could get 3 shoes! Apparently, many other consumers don’t mind the price since, as of this morning, many Footlockers are already sold out.
Some of those lucky enough to grab a pair are even re-selling them on Ebay for even more ridiculous prices. There has been a lot of hype surrounding this release because they were originally scheduled to come out on Black Friday. It looks like Nike is milking these new Jordon’s for all they are worth.
