Man Crashes Into Store To Steal The New Air Jordan XI "Space Jam' [VIDEO]

By: Evan Jankens

If you are driving by a mall early on Saturday and are wondering why there are huge lines just know Michael Jordan is releasing another pair of his famous sneakers.

The Air Jordan XI "Space Jam" will be making their highly anticipated return for the 20th anniversary of the hit movie "Space Jam," which starred Mr. Jordan.

At the end of the flick when Jordan and his "Tune Squad" took on the "Monstars" these are the shoes Jordan wore. The only difference about the pair that comes out Saturday has the number 45 on the back instead of 23.

This shoe will be very tough to get, as I hope to land myself a pair ... but I won't get my hopes up too much.

One man in Louisville didn't want to wait for Saturday and also didn't want to take the risk of missing out. Instead he reportedly decided to smash his car through a store to get himself a few pair.

According to

No injuries are reported, but crews on the scene could see a large hole in the wall of the building.

A detective on the scene told WDRB News that the suspect stole "lots of Air Jordans."

I have been a Jordan collector for 20 years and this is just one extreme I wouldn't go to.
