Reports: Texas Man Shot Over Latest Nike Air Jordan Retro sneakers
The most iconic Air Jordans in Nike’s decades-long lineup have reportedly led to violence for the second time in as many years.
click2houston.com reported Friday that a Texas man is in critical condition after being shot in an alleged armed robbery that targeted his Air Jordan Retro 11 sneakers.
A robbery victim was shot and lost control of a car, crashing into a northwest Harris County home Friday. The crooks were after his new Air Jordan shoes.
Investigators said two men had just returned from a shopping mall with new Air Jordan Retro 11 Breds when they were approached by two men in a green car who demanded the sneakers.
One of the victims jumped out of the car and escaped to safety. The other victim got behind the steering wheel and drove off, but the suspects fired at his vehicle, hitting him in the head, officials said. The victim then crashed his car into the side of the house on Plumwood and severed a gas line. He was hospitalized in critical condition.
