Jordan brand and their shoe release. I am a huge Michael Jordan fan and collect shoes for about the past ten years. One thing I have noticed from the Brand over their years is how their operations have been on rise. However at what cost do you ask? Their sales are doing great with the idea of rereleasing old retro Jordan shoes to the public that sell out in hours. The Jordan brand over the have introduce a great operation strategy over their shoes to maximize sell and have a huge aftermarket reseller of the shoes to people. People are waiting in line for days just for the retro jordan 23.
The one problem I see they have is everyone is a huge fan of Michael Jordan. People are actually robbing, shooting, killing and fighting for the shoes. Just a couple of month ago they rerelease the air Jordan retro 11 concords. As some may not know what that means it is the shoe that Michael Jordan wore in the Space Jam movie right after he retired and returned to the NBA.
People who had to buy the shoes had to be escorted by police officers back to their car and helped out the store so people would not rob them.
The operations behind this idea were great but at what cost to a human life. Why should one person have to be escorted back to their car? Do you feel it is right for companies to limit production in their operations to see people get hurt and die over some sneakers?
This also goes for the next new toy children’s want for Christmas? That’s another time for that one. The Jordan brand does not just implement this in America as their operations strategy. They spread this through their new strategy in Europe, Asia, and Australia. They went global with their operations and have now began to have limited release in each country like for the past two years they release the special editions for the Chinese new Years, only in China, the special editions for Paris basketball tournament, Jordan basketball classics, oregan university and players editions. Many have surfaced but none other than the limited release in the United States that has caused the most problem. Even the president of the United States there is a problem with this and still the brand is operating in the same manner and they are not held accountable for people and damages being done. Don’t you think certain actions if know could prevent harm should be done? Just like those commercial on TV with people who have used this drugs can sue?
