The Air Jordan 9 Dream It, Do It is making its debut on Saturday March the 9th and I think folks actually are looking forward to scooping up this pair, not only in mens but also kids sizes. I wanted to quickly give you a rough estimate on the number of pairs that might have been produced. First we need to understand that Nike only took care of their favorite family member as far as this model is concerned. All I’m saying is that the only major retailer allocated an inventory of the “Jordan 9 Dream it” is Footlocker & its derivatives ( Champs, Footaction). I’m not sure if any sneaker boutiques will be receiving this model but a quick look at their calendar proved to be fruitless. So in conclusion Nike , Footlocker, Champs and Footaction are the only ones so far that are confirmed within the USA. Now let’s come up with our estimate by using the assumptions below:
Footlocker, FTA, Champs and Eastbay will receive about 1/2 of the entire inventory
Their online locations will receive about 1/3 of the inventory the stores are getting.
.Each physical location will receive an average of 12 pairs ( most stores are operating on the first come first served basis so 12 pairs seems like a good average)
About 882 FTL stores will be given an inventory, 253 FTA and 501 Champs stores will be considered.
FTL numbers=882 x 18=10584, FTA = 253x 12=3036, Champs= 501 x 12=6012 . Now let’s estimate the online stores’s numbers,
(10584 + 3036 +6012)/3=6544
and Total from Footlocker and its derivatives= 10584 + 3036+6012 + 6544=26176 or let say 30,000 pairs
The Grand Total ( for North America) based on the earlier assumptions would be:
30000 x 2= 60,000 pairs ( men’s pairs) and I’ll say about 60,000 for kids as well.
CURRENT MARKET VALUE/ SHOULD YOU COP TO FLIP??
From the histogram above, you can clearly see that one is most likely to buy this shoe from third party merchants for $239.99. The price hasn’t changed much but only on one day ( that is march he 4th by $10) and went back to the $239.99. Interestingly the $249.99 was for sizes 9 and 9.5 ( this might be a isolated event). So should you cop to flip??? The margins are very minimal for resellers unless they are getting the shoe at a discounted price. But it is definitely going to be a bonus for retailers or shall I say Nike and Footlocker ( since they are the only ones really carrying it).
