Every Nov. 11, mainland China celebrates "Singles' Day," a holiday that arose among college students in the 1990s and has since become the single biggest shopping day of the entire year across the world.

Yes, that's a pair of knockoff Air Jordans with a very cheeky (and honestly pretty terrible) MJ silhouette on them. But I don't know why anyone would be mad about ending up with that rumpy shoe. Anyone can get a pair of Jordans; how many people can claim a shoe with some serious junk in the trunk?
No word on how much the Air Jordan Dumps went for, but I hope they make their way to the U.S. sooner rather than later.
