Forget Black Friday, Friday night-Saturday morning was the night to spend in line for the new Air Jordan athletic shoes.
At Destiny USA's Carousel entrance, the line stretched down the parking pickup area and into an alcove. The line started at 5pm Friday evening, and went all night in the bone-chilling cold. People took turns watching the line of chairs, while the waiters went inside to warm up.
Among those waiting for the 5am shoe store openings, people who called the shoes 'stupid sneakers,'--to our eye they looked like mothers, buying for their children.
The Air Jordan Taxi 12's retail for 170 dollars.
