Told people when sh*t popped off that they where gonna k!ll that midnight release sh*t. I wouldn't doubt if they raised the prices to avoid the bullsh*t.

But everytime I think about these shoes I hear those uncle ruckus horns in my head.
Just means more drugs will be sold to cop em bruh

Those Concords would be sold out if they were $400

I do not think Jordan should lower the price of his shoes because people are getting robbed for them, but your analogy is not entirely accurate. Mercedes does not make over 1000% profit off of selling a Benz, Jordan/Nike does. Mercedes actually sells its cars at a reasonable price when you consider the engineering and quality of parts being used to make the cars. With Jordans you are not paying for better quality, just name and design. There is no reason for Jordans to be priced so high as to make over 1000% profit. The only reason they are priced so high is because people are willing to pay for them.

Broke people should not be buying $200 shoes anyway. Smarten up.

The demand is greater than supply which also equates to an increase in crime when it comes to limited releases like the concords. There is no reason for it.

When it comes to Jordans the words "limited edition" always make me laugh. Cuz after everyone k!lls eachother the first day it comes out, the stores get new shipments by the end of the week anyway.

And NONE of these Jordans are NEW. They just come out in different colors, or sometimes even the same eexact color. They just add the word "retro" to it.

I got my son the concords tho

A classic case of not taking responsibility on one's actions. Any time a community is blaming a celebrity for stupid sh*t people do in their own community, those leaders aren't and will not be or amount to sh*t

Thats the whole point though. Folks been k!lling over Jordans for many years. Jordan knows folks behavior will not change. I wouldn't be able to sleep at night knowing people were being murdered and robbed over something MY name is on.
people get robbed and k!lled for cars, jewelry, ipods...all kinds of sh*t.

should all businesses need to put out a statement and drop prices whenever someone is robbed or k!lled for a product?

I love how they blame the jordan brand...... I mean why don't they take responsibility for their own doing? Where do we start? Nike just releases a product..... Who makes these people get so hyped over it? Word of mouth? Marketing? How about today's overly materialistic hip hop? Where does it start? You know where it starts..............?

You really wanna know? It starts with the man in the mirror!!!
