Ethan Ellis designed the Air Jordan 14 DB Doernbecher and shared via Nike the stories behind the elements he incorporated on the shoe. Ethan was born a hypo plastic left heart syndrome, a condition where the left heart of his heart is underdeveloped. Because this deficiency in his heart, he had to endure 6 open heart surgeries and by the grace of the Living God he has survived to tell his story through the Jordan 14 and give glory to the God who provided the surgeons. Here is what the key elements of the shoe represent: Colors-reference his favorite college team, the TCU Hornet FrogsRead More →

Real Vs Fake air jordan 12 dark grey

The Air Jordan 12 Dark Grey released officially on December the 2nd in massive numbers. But that hasn’t prevented bootleggers to create their own replicas. I finally had an opportunity to visit my local mall yesterday and took several pictures of an authentic pair of the Jordan 12 Dark Grey ( in size 9) so I can do a side by side comparison with the fake one  ( in size 9 as well). Here are quick tips to identify the fake air jordan 12 dark grey. The gap between the plastic tab and the heel portion of the midsole ( see red arrow) is widerRead More →

Sneaker Retailers Will Have To Function Like Third Party Marketplaces

I know this may sound like the most asinine thing folks have ever heard but retailers are soon going to have to cave in to the consumer and function like a third party platform to compete in this market. But before I breakdown my statement , let me first expose a couple of problems. 1. Dead Before Arrival This is mainly an issue with general release sneakers, I wrote a post in which I discovered that most GR Jordan retros ( unless limited) lose 20% of their value before their official release date , see link below , it explains it all General Release JordanRead More →

Jordan 13 Island Green Is Available Now For $159.99

I wrote a post about the current resale value of the Air Jordan 13 Island green a couple of weeks ago with the intention of pointing out a serious issue with general release sneakers. In the post I asserted that for retailers to compete with third party marketplaces, they would have to price- match places like Stockx ( since the platform pretty much regulates what the consumer is willing to pay for a certain shoe). Well two days ago I walked into my local mall and saw that the Jordan 13 island green was marked down to $159.99. In the article that I wrote, IRead More →

Air Jordan 12 Dark Grey 130690-160 3

It features a white full grain leather upper with grey details on the mudguard overlays; more grey can be spotted on the back tab, ankle liner, sockliner and outsole. The shoe is also equipped with full length zoom air units for maximum cushioning.

Air Jordan 14 Doernbecher CV2469-001 Resale Value buy sell or hold

I usually write a projection post on the number of pairs made of a shoe prior to figuring out its resale value. But for the Air Jordan 14 Doernbecher, I had absolutely no data to work with as far the number  of units produced is concerned. So far the only confirmed retailer beside Nike is Shoepalace; so I prefer not to give you a very subjective opinion about the possible number of pairs in the market. Nike has certainly put a tight leash on this model since only two sales have been recorded on Stockx and none on other third party marketplaces. I wrote aRead More →
