“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”—Maya Angelou (via unconquered-soul)
The United States of America is currently under an “economic crisis”, yet their are hundreds of thousands of people standing in line. Standing waiting to purchase a pair of Jordan Concords that less then I’ll just say 25% of people in line will get a ticket maybe to get a pair. Currently Americas unemployment rate is at 8.6%, but hey who cares? People are still going to wait in line and take chances on spending roughly $195 on some shoes. I could only imagine peoples thought process. I’m sure it went something like this, “It’s okay. I don’t need that $195 for food, gas, rent, utilities or children if you have children. I’ll just hold off and wait suffer for a week or two.” No, I’m not speaking from a point of view that everybody is in but I believe their are a lot of customers who were willing to take those risk for a pair of Concords. But at the same time these are the same people that are complaining about job opportunities and the fact that they have no money. Why complain? It doesn’t make since. Seems like you got your priorities straight if you can stand in line for hours to purchase a pair of shoes you MIGHT get. I wonder if people took off work to wait for them? No, I’m not hating, because I purchased a pair also. The shoe is tough, the box is tough and point blank it’s the 11s, but I knew before purchasing these shoes I must have my priorities straight and now how to budget! I wonder how many people in America actually got a pair compared to the number of people that stood in line. Owning a pair of Jordans is a want not a necessity. Congratulations to all those who were able to get a pair.
