The Adidas Yeezy 350 V2 Static is releasing in about three days and this version apparently doesn’t have any reflective properties. My task this morning is to come up with a possible number of pairs produced and what I usually do with this projection is check the Store Finder via Adidas to see the number stores worldwide that have been allocated an inventory at the except the USA. For the Sesame 350’s I counted 618 stores and for the recent Semi Frozen edition, that number went down to 590. And this morning when I did the same thing for the Yeezy 350 Static, the number went down to 568. So there is a linear relationship that can be established and we can see that Adidas is slowly trimming down the the number of allocations. What I’ll do is find an equation to estimate the number of pairs of the Static Yeezy made based on the previous two models ( Sesame and Semi Frozen). I’ll also do it the regular way ( based on my assumptions ) and compared the two numbers.
Sesame, for 618 stores I projected 70,000 pairs and Semi-Frozen, for 590 stores , 60,000 pairs were projected hence we have the following data points Sesame ( 618, 70k) Semi Frozen ( 590, 60k). Using the slope intercept formula or your TI-83 calculator, you’ll come up with the following equation:
Yeezy 350 = 357 x ( Number of Stores) -150,712
So for 568 stores , the total number of pairs produced is:
Yeezy 350 V2 Static= 357 x 568 – 150712= 52,144 pairs ( rounded off)
2.Now let’s do it based on our usual assumptions
- I’ll assume that most stores will be receiving a total of 60 pairs based on my previous post
- 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
Rest of the World=( 568) x 60 pairs=34080 pairs for physical locations
online locations= 34080/4=8520
Total for rest of the world =34080 +8520=42600 or round it off to 43k pairs
USA inventory 43000/3=14200 let’s take it up to 15000
TOTAL INVENTORY BASED ON ASSUMPTIONS =43000+ 15000=580000 pairs
so there is a difference of roughly 6000 pairs. All these numbers are directly related to the assumptions I’ve set so take it with a grain of salt. I’m just trying to paint a picture of what folks can expect.
I always start by checking how the shoe is doing on eBay and when I checked it this morning, I only recorded about four sales, see screenshot below ranging from $307.90 to $389.99 ( you can see the sold listings yourself in the picture). I will say that these are inconclusive because the sample is way too small and isn’t quite representative of the reality that might take place upon release date. But based on these numbers, the market value is $346.87 ( which isn’t bad for guys looking to resell the shoes).
StockX on the other hand has a market value of $362 ( but this has been influenced by the earlier version of the shoe). What we should really take into consideration is the recent sales and if you look at the bottom left corner, you’ll see the $305,$320,$398, $398, $310 which are more reflective of the current value of the shoe.
In conclusion I’ll say that the Yeezy 350 V2 Static will definitely sell out via Retail and will have a considerable market value based on the findings above.
You can purchase the shoes now on eBay from our featured sellers in the listings below
