BATON ROUGE, La (FOX44) Some people will do almost anything for a new pair of gym shoes. Not just any gym shoe, but the new Air Jordan 11, better known as "The Concord."

Thousands lined up outside shoe stores across the nation tonight to nab the first pairs to go on sale today, and often times, things got rowdy!

At the Mall of Cortana, Hibbett Sports says they sold out within 15 minutes of opening.

The $180 dollar sneakers are re-issues of the ones that debuted in 1995. They were worn by their namesake during the season Michael Jordan led the Chicago Bulls to an NBA record 72 wins.
