The Air Jordan 1 High 85 Varsity Red will release officially on February the 8th and will retail for $200. The shoe was designed by designer Peter Moore and features a black and red leather upper, contrasted by a white midsole. This edition is a reinterpretation of the iconic Banned colorway and will therefore come out in place of the Air Jordan 1 High Chicago which was originally announced. Note that the yoke at the ankle is a few millimeters higher to respect the original shape of 1985. Everyone wants to know how many pairs were possibly made. Folks are also interested in the resale value of the shoe and that’s where I come into play. Who is getting the shoe?
Beside Nike, let’s take a quick count of the additional boutiques/stores and retailers that will be allocated an inventory of this model.
Local Retailers: Footlocker, Finishline
While I was searching for the stockists allocated, I found several articles that revealed that 23,000 pairs were made so It makes no sense for me to make any kind of projections if the stock number has already been release. We’ll just jump from here and investigate the resale value of the Air Jordan 1 High 85 Varsity Red.
The overall average price of the shoe is about $781 ( a 234.9% markup). This shoe is probably one of the best one for resale purposes in the month of February.
