Sneakerheads camp out for new 'Jordans'

Nearly two dozen people are already camping out to get their hands, or feet, in some new 'Jordans.'

Queylan Davis got to the Athlete's Foot on Dawson Road in Albany Wednesday night and is first in line.

He's one of many wanting the new Air Jordan retro 11 shoes, which will go on sale Saturday. Davis says this shoe is especially popular.

"Call it sneakerhead if you want to, but I collect Jordans," said Davis. "And these are some that Jordan played in, in the year 96 all-star game and I definitely got to get them."

"Why do you have to be first?"

"Because if you're not first, you're last," explained Davis.

Davis slept in his truck Wednesday night but is prepared to sleep in the cold tonight. He's done this before to get the latest Jordans, but this is the earliest he's ever camped out. If you want a pair, they'll cost you $200.
