Be sure to check your local mall for late shipments of several Jordan Retros and other sneakers that have dropped in the past several weeks. Yesterday , my local footlocker finally received its shipment of the Air Jordan 5 Raging Bull. The shoe actually released officially on April the 10th and the Footlocker I was visiting didn’t receive its shipments of the men’s’ sizes till May the 29th, basically 49 days after the shoe was due. So I’ll encourage you to visit local retailers in your regions, you might be surprised with what you come across on their shelves. This is good news for collectors because resale prices are going to start tanking again. Because of the pandemic, retailers were not receiving their shipments and the situation created a false positive in the resale market. I wrote an article in which I discovered that most General Release Jordan retros were selling for as low as to 20% below their retail price before they actually officially dropped, see link below
But that actually changed with the pandemic, sneakers that were usually labeled as dust collectors were selling out because the supply was limited due to shipments being delayed. This is why I call this a false positive, and yesterday when I came across the Air Jordan 5 Raging Bull, it confirmed it. In the video below, I quickly talk about this phenomenon.
