Rest easy, world. If you felt a sudden disturbance in the force, it had to be the shoes - and certainly not a lawsuit.

The new "Space Jam" Air Jordans - Air Jordan 11 (Air Jordan XI) Retro - are out a day early. Originally due to hit shelves the 24th, you can get Santa to get you your high top fix without any more wait.

The shoe for "everyone," as Nike puts it, retails at $175. Clearly made for the masses - by tiny hands, so think of the kids when you're strapping them on.

Here's the press release from Nike:

Initially set to release on Christmas Eve as a special gift from Jordan to sneaker fans everywhere, the launch date for the Air Jordan Retro 11 has been moved a day up to December 23rd. This change will give everyone more opportunity to get their 11's before retailers close their doors early on Christmas Eve.

See? They are thinking of you, consumer person!

And, of course, some fun Memory Lane moments with the previous must-have kicks inspired by his baldness. Now when do the parachute pants and Michal Jackson zipper jackets come back to compliment the retro theme?

Early X-mas present to myself!

Wow you know last week I asked the guy at this footlocker what time they're opening up to release the space jams and if they have them. He said today at 7 so I'm there and they don't let anyone in and then I find out that they don't have any size 9s, 10s, or 11s. This is why the sneaker games messed up, not like these are some sbs that'll sell for 500+ but still this needs to stop happening.

shoes are uglyyy mayneeee

man it was a riot at almost every store in houston, went to 4 diffr malls, willow, deerbrook, northline, galleria, they had massive lines.. and just choas period. i got mine size 10.5 will sale 400.00 with receipt, box, and bag.

i also got a 11C size, will sale for 120.00

Mmmmaaaaaan. I work at footlocker in gulfgate houston tx. Ppl camped out the night before, we had a line all the way around the building. The problem in houston is that the ppl were misled. Everyone thought gallaria footlocker would have the most. . . But what you don't see is the stand alone stores, northline and gulfgate, they arnt in a mall, and we make our own rules. We had double what the galleria had! Ppl camped out, lined up and went about there bidness, we opened at 430. When other people from around town started commin by, cuttin in line we had to shut down and call the reinforcements. . But long story short. Everyone in line got a pair these ppl were stupid waiting outside these small malls that only got in 30 pairs. It was chaos for sure. But money is money, and the kicks did look fresh on my feet while I sold em. :o)

Lick mine all the time....................
