SEATTLE – Police reportedly used pepper spray to break up fights among shoe buyers who pushed and shoved outside a Seattle area mall to pick up some of the first Nike retro Air Jordans that went on sale early Friday.

Seattle TV stations report hundreds of customers had been waiting for hours outside the Westfield Southcenter mall and police were on hand to control disputes that broke out over line-cutting or pushing.

Hundreds of customers also lined up for hours outside stores in downtown Seattle and a mall in Federal Way.

One buyer walking away with the shoes told KING-TV it’s a classic style and the shoes that retail for $180 are selling for $400 on the Internet.

    I’m just curious to know that if these folks can stand in line for some Jordans, how many are willing to stand in line to vote for President next year?
