You might be struggling to pay your bills these days, but if you’re an enthusiast Michael Jordan’s Air Jordan sneakers you’ll soon be paying more for your kicks. When the new Air Jordan 2009 hits shelves, its retail price will be an astounding $190, up $15 from the most recent model.
Of course, His Airness thinks you should just be accepting the price hike as part of having an elite product. As he told CNBC’s Darren Rovell, “you don’t buy a Ferrari and expect to get a Volkswagen price.” Actually, Mike, most people would be happy with a Yugo these days. Does Starbury still make those cheap shoes?
