The scene outside Nordstrom in Broadway Plaza just before the store opened at 8 a.m. Wednesday:
About 20 people, huddled in jackets, mittens, hats, waiting, waiting, waiting to get inside and purchase a limited number of new-model Nike Air Jordan Space Jam Retro basketball shoes.
The 50 pairs of $175 shoes were to go on sale Wednesday morning at Nordstrom, according to the Contra Costa Times. One gentleman, who had the coveted spot at the front of the line, said he had arrived 11 a.m. Tuesday.
Such dedication for these sports/Michael Jordan fans! I hope this guy and all the others who had reportedly been standing in line, at least since Tuesday evening, will get what they want.
And, hey, Michael Jordan, is one very, very rich and transformative sports icon who can still sell products, unlike another less fortunate sports great who has recently fallen into the pits of scandal! But last I heard, Nike was still sticking by you know who.
