It's true!  The New Improved Air Jordan 6 Retro Maroon is out and the 1991 predecessor is better than ever just before Christmas.   The new Nike Airs dropped today at $220 a pair.  And guess what? You did not have to look for them at the world famous SnickerCon.  As the diverse crowd of men  and women lined up early this morning to guarantee their size, approximately $4,400 dollars has been guaranteed to the City of Newark's economy.

Although everyone in line at 6:30 am this morning was willing to conversate with the reporter, no one was willing to pose for a picture due to the possibility of active warrants owed to the Sheriff department.  Funny!
