SI.com The Crying Jordan meme has become inescapable in 2016 with everyone who takes a tough loss quickly having their head replaced with the face of a weeping Michael Jordan online. Clever artists Sherman Winfield and Andrew Weiss have decided to merge the internet phenomenon with Jordan’s famed Air Jordan sneakers for a pair of custom Air Crying Jordan VIIIs. The pair describe themselves as sneaker collectors, and have promised Crying Jordan updates to other models of the legends eponymous sneakers in the coming weeks at their website, CryingKicks.com. There is no sale information on the website, but you can be sure the always ravenous desire for the most exclusive Jordans will push the price for these sky high if they ever hit the market.
The “Crying Jordan” meme has obviously swept the nation over the past year, it’s a meme which features Michael Jordan crying, which is used whenever anyone is sad or faces disappointment or embarrassment. The “Crying Jordan” face is often superimposed on the face (or faces) of someone who has suffered a loss, been eliminated from the playoffs, or had anything happen that could have upset them. For the most part, I am tired of the “Crying Jordan” meme, however every now and then I see a really creative new version which makes me laugh. Two sneakerheads have decided to attempt to capitalize on on the “Crying Jordan” meme craze and create an Air Crying Jordan sneaker which is modeled after the famous Nike Air Jordan. As a novelty item, I could see these entrepreneurs selling some of these sneakers, but personally I will not be buying a pair.
