In the world of sneakers, there are a few brands that instantly command attention and excitement. Jordan Brand is definitely one of those brands. Over the years, they’ve released some iconic shoes that have become coveted collector’s items. The Air Jordan 3 Desert Elephant is one of those shoes. In this short post, we’ll discuss why you shouldn’t try to resell this shoe at this point.
Jordan 3 Desert Elephant: Resale Value
The chart above gives us a breakdown of the current earnings/losses per size sold. As you can see, 92% of the sales resulted in losses ( sizes 7-12.5) ,while only one single sale ( 8%) led to a break even point. The verdict is clear, do not resell the shoe or you’ll suffer some great losses. This ought to raise your eyebrows whether you’re a reseller or not. The average sale price of the shoe for sizes 7-9.5 is $181 ( that is 13% below the suggested retail price). How can this be possible when the shoe hasn’t even officially released yet. Something isn’t right and Nike surely knows what is going on, but the brand probably cant stop it, or shall I say they won’t stop it.
The average resale value for sizes 10-13 is $213 ( $1 above the MSRP) still resulting in a loss of $18. So I hope you’re a Saturday morning reseller, you know not to touch this shoe. But for folks with enough capital, this is the ideal shoe for the long term investment. I can see it peaking at $300 within the next 14-18 months. And the good news is, you can buy it for below retail. This is also great news for buyers, you’ll be able to buy the Desert Elephant Jordan 3 for retail or less.
