I wanted to establish a linear equation that would allow me to spend less time counting the number of stores allocated an inventory but a subtle change by Adidas disrupted my objective. 533 international stores were given the Zebra Yeezy 350 V2; and that number grew to 618 for the Sesame Yeezy 350. So my goal was to create a linear model based on the recent releases but Adidas chose to give the Yeezy 350 V2 Frozen edition to 590 stores and completely disrupted the growth pattern that I was noticing. So to make a better projection on the 350 V2 Frozen edition, i’ll revert to using the usual assumptions that you’ve been accustomed to.
- I’ll assume that most stores will be receiving a total of 60 pairs based on my previous posts
- Let’s also assume the rest of the world will receive 2/3 of the total inventory while Adidas USA and major/minor US retailers receive about 1/3.
- We’ll also take into consideration that the online stores of the rest of the World will receive about 1/4 of the inventory the physical stores will be getting
NOW LET’S RUN OUR NUMBERS
Rest of the World=( 590) x 60 pairs=35400 pairs for physical locations
Total for rest of the world =35400 + 8850=43350 or round it off to 45000 pairs
USA inventory 50,000/3=15000
TOTAL INVENTORY BASED ON ASSUMPTIONS = 45000 + 15000=60000 pairs
I will try to establish a linear regression equation based on the data that I’ve collected from these recent releases of the Yeezy for the next one planned by Adidas.

CURRENT MARKET VALUE
The first place I checked to collect my data for the market price was eBay. Gathering information on eBay is a nightmare because of the amount fakes that are so prevalent on that marketplace. I had to carefully look at several sold items and check the sellers’s feedback prior to considering them. That narrowed down my number to 12 pairs sold between Dec 11-13 ( notice I’m only using the recent sales). The numbers were as follows: $305, $315 x2, $320, $340×2,$348, $356, $359 for sizez 4, 8-11 and $360, $370 sizes 14 and 13 respectively.
The average selling price based on these numbers is $338.5 but you can clearly see that it is influenced by the bigger sizes ( 13 and 14). If I were to single those two sizes out, the new average price would be $333 ( a $5 dollar difference).
StockX’s numbers can be seen in the screenshot below
Don’t be fooled by the $513; this is the second rendition of the Semi-Frozen Yeezy 350 and StockX’s records include the original edition as well, which explains why the market value is amplified. If you check the red rectangle in the picture, you’ll see the recent sales recorded and those are ranging between $272 and $290. So in conclusion, I’ll assume that this shoe will not be reselling for more than $310 on common sizes.
