Brawls over Air Jordans

NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -
The release of the latest Nike Air Jordan sneaker brought out throngs 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 she 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.
