Behold the Crying Jordan meme-inspired sneakers ‘Crying Kicks’
Well, it’s happened. The ubiquitous and divisive "Crying Jordan" meme has inspired a pair of basketball sneakers.
These sneakers haven’t entered the market, though. Not yet at least. Official Crying Jordan kicks would have to go through Jordan himself and/or Nike.
Jordan may be cool with the meme but he is NOT cool with others using his name, face or likeness for commercial gain.
"We haven’t seen anyone using it to promote their commercial interests," a Jordan rep told TMZ in February, "which is something that we’re monitoring."
The person(s) who actually attempts to sell Crying Jordan merchandise will end up shedding real tears.
