Air Jordan 6 Black Infrared | Widely Spread But Not Very Easy To Get

Sharing is caring!

The Air Jordan 6 Black Infrared is still the shoe that brings the most memories to my mind. That’s because one of my friends was the only one in my high school with a pair in the 90’s. I grew up in Togo, West Africa where getting our hands on retros was darn near impossible. So the infrared 6 will always have a special place in my heart. The shoe is officially releasing tomorrow and for those who don’t know, MJ wore it at the 1991 NBA All Star Game. I know a lot of folks want to get their hands on a pair and my job this evening is to come up with an estimate of the number of units available for North America. All the major and minor retailers that you can think of will have the Infrared 6 in stock ( Nike, Footlocker, Footaction, Champs, Eastbay, Dicks, Hibbett, Finishline, DTLR/Ruvilla, Jimmy Jazz, Citygear, KicksUSA, Shoepalace, Ubiq, Shoe City and Eblens) just to name these. This implies that the sneakers will be available in substantial numbers but it’s a black shoe and a consumer’s favorite so it’ll be not that easy to come by. As a matter of fact, Footlocker & its derivatives proceeded to do a “launch reservation” on the infrared 6. To get our numbers, we’ll lean on the following assumptions:

  • Footlocker and its derivatives will receive about 1/4 of the total inventory
  • Each regular physical FTL receives 18 pairs, FTA and Champs probably 18 pairs as well
  • House Hoops locations will receive about 36 per store
  • And their online counterparts ( Eastbay included) will receive about a quarter of the inventory the physical locations will be allocated.
  • North America has  a little over 900 active Footlocker stores( 335 are HOH’s), 540 Champs stores and  253 Footaction stores and those are the ones that will be considered.

Physical Stores: Footlocker (565 x 18) + House of Hoops ( 335 x36) +Champs ( 540 x 18) + Footaction (253 x 18)=36504 pairs

Online locations: A quarter  of the total number 36504/4=12064

let’s not forget give Eastbay a 1/4 of the total from the FTL,FTA, Champs online combined

Eastbay= 12064/4=3016

So the Total from Footlocker and derivatives = 36504 + 12064 + 3016=51584 roughly 52k

And now the Grand total is based on our earlier assumptions: 52k x4=208,000 pairs

SHOULD YOU BUY TO FLIP?

The data I collected on eBay was summarized in the histogram above, the $260-$270 price range recorded the most sales ( 42 in total between 2/12 and 2/15). The average market value based on the figure above is :

$21095/78= $270.44 basically a $58 mark up if you live in the state of Maryland ( and your margins are at 27.36%) ; but that is not considering eBay fees, paypal fees, shipping fees and potential returns. Unless you are a retailer or getting some type of discount on the Black infrared 6, I wouldn’t recommend buying them for resale purposes via eBay.

Kixify is painting a different picture- most of the shoes sold within the $250-$260 price range ( 93 recorded in total). But the next recorded sales occurred within the $290-$300+ price range ( a total of 23). The average market value based on this $260.86 or $261. Again I’ll encourage you to leave the shoe alone unless you’re acquiring them with a discount.

Retailers will do great on the Black Infrared 6 since collectors as well as the average consumer are looking for them. Nike has figured out a way to get rid of the resellers by increasing the retail price to $200 ( basically giving resellers no margins to work with).
