I wrote a post in 2016 when the #45 Jordan 11 Space Jam was dropping, see link below. And ironically, the Space Jam went down as the biggest release from Nike, in other words the shoes flooded the market and still sold out. And months after they released, we kept being served with restocks after restocks. If you wonder why I’m saying all this, it’s because the #45 Concord 11’s are about to drop and I think they will make the Space Jam look like a walk in the park.
The 2016 Space Jam 11 Marks The End Of The Jordan Retro Resellers
Nike began 2018 with a new resolution-do away with products that don’t work and give their attention to those that work. And so far the brand has walked parallel to the Edit To Amplify campaign as it pertains to Jordan Retros. Last year, I wrote a post to try to figure out the number of pairs of the Jordan 11 Win like 96 that were made; in the process I established a linear regression model to help me make predictions on future releases of the same models ( the Jordan 11). So today, I’ll be very pragmatic and solely rely on mathematics for the prediction. Refer to the post below to for additional questions
How Many Pairs Of The Air Jordan 11 Win Like 96 Were Produced? Should You Pay Over Retail?
How the equation was formulated?
I assumed a linear growth based on data obtained from the 2014 Legend Blue Jordan 11 and the 2015 Jordan 11 72-10. With those two data points we can create a linear regression and make bold predictions. The two reference data points are going to be the centered around the year 2014 and 2015-Legend blue 11 (2014,963242) and Jordan 11 72-10(2015,1073149)
I can use my TI-83 calculator or manually find the slope ( rate of change of the number of 11’s produced with respect to time).
Here is what I found,
m=(slope=rate of change)=109,907 and my starting number is 963242 ( from the 2014 legend blue ) number of pairs produced. So our regression line equation will be :
Jordan 11= 109,907 x (t=number of years since 2014)+ 963242
Now let’s predict the number of pairs of the #45 Air Jordan 11 Concord that could be made based on the equation above.
Year 2018= t=4
#45 Jordan 11 concord= (109,907 x 4) + 963242=1,402,870 and I’ll go as far as saying 1,600,000 wouldn’t surprise me.
There you have it folks, prepare yourself for an avalanche of Concord 11’s.
