For any readers that haven't noticed, there is a moratorium on online Air Jordan releases from Nike, which seems to be stuck trying to figure out how to beat the bots.

What's particularly interesting is that the drought isn't a global one. The Air Jordan 1 "Pinnacle" for example is still releasing in Europe via Nikestore. Are things really not so compromised on the other side of the pond? Or have people just not been complaining on the same level that Americans have? Obviously there's less of a demand for Jordan retros in Europe, so maybe bot problems aren't as rampant on Nike's Euro webshop.

Anyone with access can try and grab this coveted pair of Air Jordan 1s from Nike Europe starting Saturday, June 13.
