Air Jordan shoe collection worth $10G stolen in North Carolina burglary

A North Carolina man's collection of Air Jordan shoes -- 30 pairs in all -- were stolen during a burglary of his home in Charlotte.

The collection of sought-after Nike sneakers was thought to be worth $10,000, WNCN-TV reported Thursday.

Bryant Toala, 22, said he had been collecting Air Jordan shoes since he was in middle school, and he showed the Charlotte TV station the empty boxes left behind by the thieves who broke into his Mapleridge Drive home on Monday night.

Along with the Air Jordan collection, the thieves took 30 matched baseball caps, another 10 pairs of Nike shoes and electronics, with the entire haul estimated to be worth $22,000, WBTV reported.

A re-release by Nike of Air Jordan XI late last year sparked a US-wide shopping frenzy which led to fights, vandalism and arrests as desperate shoppers scrambled to buy the limited edition shoes.
