One of the latest 2014 Jordan release dates that Jordanheads are eagerly waiting for is December 20, when the Air Jordan 11 Retro “Legend Blue.” However, this means that many 23 is Back readers in Houston had likely lined up outside Willowbrook Mall this Sunday in order to grab a ticket that would enable them to cop a pair of the “Legend Blue” sneaker when it hits the shelves. This also means that they had likely witnessed the chaos that erupted because of the disorderly crowds.
Police arrived at the Willowbrook Mall when a glass entrance door there got smashed to bits and pieces by a rock thrown at it. Apparently, a teenage girl who had been a part of the crowd outside The Woodlands Mall also got tasered by an electric jolt fired by a deputy from a taser gun. This arrival of the “Legend Blue” colorway of the Air Jordan 11 was also being promoted by Footlocker this Sunday, and ever since this incident, the store has not opened yet.
A local televisions station received cell photos from the teenage girl who got tasered, and it can be clearly seen that her backside has a Taser barb attached to it. Fortunately, she was released from a local hospital soon after. Despite the fact that the crowds of sneakerheads should have maintained order, someone who does not share a passion for sneakers would probably not understand the idea of standing in line to be able to buy an upcoming Air Jordan.
Crowds of Jordanheads have gotten rowdy in the past as well, but a word of advice from 23 is Back is to avoid such behavior and have some patience. No matter how long the wait, it is always worth it for a new jordans like the Air Jordan 11 Retro “Legend Blue.” Despite this chaotic incident, this will probably not prevent sneakerheads from lining up like this for future 2014 and 2015 Jordan release dates.
