Each December, a pair of Air Jordan 11s sets the sneaker world, and pretty much anyone looking to nab a pair as a Christmas gift, ablaze. But the “Legend Blue” colorway, released on Saturday (December 20), take the cake.

SportScanInfo reports that Nike earned a whopping $80 million in sales after moving nearly 480K worth of kicks in an estimated time of three hours via online stores and official retailers.

That’s $80 million figure is essentially the equivalent to moving Grand Theft Auto numbers in the sneaker world.

Competition, where?

Your best bet of finding a pair of Air Jordan 11 “Legend Blue” is through a reseller a la Flight Club. Let us know if you were able to cop in the comments.
