Release Of Nike Air Jordan GAMMA BLUE 11'S Cause Brawls In Shoe Stores Nationwide (VIDEO BELOW)

Several scuffles erupted inside a California shoe store, where at least three people were pummeled to the ground.

For some Air Jordan shoppers, a new pair of kicks came with a few extra blows last weekend.

The highly anticipated release of the Nike brand’s new design, the Gamma Blue 11, sparked brawls in shoe stores from California to the Bronx as customers battled each other to buy the $170 sneakers.

In one of the clips, which was posted on Instagram, what appear to be several scuffles erupt on Saturday inside a store at Weberstown Mall in Stockton, Calif.

At one point, a shirtless man is pummeled to the floor as others fight each other inside the store.

Police told KTXL-TV that everyone fled the store before officers arrived. No arrests were made.

Hours earlier, tempers flared outside a Dallas mall — when a group of people tried to cut a long line to another shoe store about to release the new Air Jordan sneakers.

Officers broke up the spat and remained at the scene to keep control of the wild crowd after the store opened,

Meanwhile, a crowd outside an E. 151st St. Foot Locker in the Bronx burst into a fracas that spilled out into the street.

Pictures and video posted online shows a handful of people, including teenaged girls, fighting each other outside the store.

There were no immediate reports of any injuries or arrests.

Last year, 22-year-old Joshua Woods was shot and killed after he and a friend bought newly released Nike Air Jordan shoes at a Houston mall.

His pal escaped the ambush by fleeing into a neighbor’s home.

A fight broke out at a Foot Locker in the Bronx during the release of the new Nike Air Jordan design, the Gamma Blue 11.

Four men were later arrested for the senseless killing.

The slain man’s mother, Dazie Williams, has since launched Life Over Fashion — a campaign to call on Nike to reconsider how it releases the new sneakers.

“It hurt me greatly knowing that he had been killed over shoes,” the mother told the Cypress Creek Mirror last summer “But it’s nothing new. This has been going on since the 80s.

“People are being robbed and stabbed just by standing in line. Once the doors open, people are trampled trying to get in.”

All I saw was immature teenagers fighting. I saw no "Men" as the writer of this article insidiously calls them.

That's why the same day the sneakers were released @ Michael Jordan's sneaker signing he, himself had a gun put to his head for his own personal pair "step up outa dem bro" was what was said to him & he did just that! The guy was caught later that day. Let's see how they deal with the sneaker release from now on. Slave mentality still in effect. Smh
