Is it the shoes? I has to be the shoes!

Police were brought in to quell unrest that nearly turned into riots across the United States following the release of Nike's new basketball shoe, a retro model of one of the most popular Air Jordans ever made.

The mayhem, including scuffles between customers, stretched from Washington state to Georgia on Friday as huge crowds of shoppers overwhelmed stores. It was reminiscent of the violence that broke out 20 years ago in many cities as the shoes became popular targets for thieves. The $180 shoes went on sale in a limited release at stores, and the lines began forming several hours before businesses opened.

Just another sign of the end of days dear reader, nothing really to see here; move along, move along.
