GEt a straight A report card. Do the dishes without being asked. Say, "I love you, Mommy!" and give her a hug.

Do something out-of-the-blue for her, like breakfast in bed, or making her dinner!
Or, do something out of the ordinary! Start community service, build a garden, volunteer at the soup kitchen!
Or, you could attempt to academically succeed, although this isn't as much in your control.
Another idea is helping her with chores, and working out a schedule to follow for a certain amount of time until she can buy the Jordans.
Lastly, you could athletically succeed, like scoring five baskets in a basketball game, or throwing the game-winning touchdown, and maybe she'll buy them on a whim. I think if you play basketbal and want Jordans, that especially helps.
Hope you get the Jordans! :)

compliment her every day, and ask her how her day was.

*sigh* You are missing the point, I think. You shouldn't need a reward to do something right. If you aren't doing anything right, than all there is left is wrong, and you should want to fix that yourself. You should want to make her happy, just for the sake of making her happy. Your mom has done so much for you already, she deserves a little unconditional love.
