From Morning Report, 8:23 am on 20 November 2020

Michael Jordan may have finished playing professional basketball almost two decades ago but the shoes that bear his name continue to attract attention.

Overnight over 100 people queued outside Footlocker on Lambton Quay, to ensure they secured a pair of the sought after shoes when shop doors opened at 8AM.

Even more were lining up outside two Auckland stores.

What precisely were they waiting for?

The Air Jordan 1 Hi OG 'Mocha' - which would have set them back $240 a pair.

Reporter Michael Cropp was there.
