The Adidas Yeezy 350 V2 Black is officially releasing on June the 7th and since this colorway is conservative, I’m suspecting that Adidas probably produced a substantial amount. But since I don’t operate on the basis of intuitive assertions, I’ll try to come up with a credible estimate of the number of pairs that could’ve been made based on data collected via Adidas.com. The last pair of Yeezy 350 I wrote about on my site was the “non reflective static” colorway and my estimate was 58,000 pairs. I also want to recall a linear model created for the 350 silhouette,
Yeezy 350 = 357 x ( Number of Stores) -150,712
When I counted the number of stores that were allocated an inventory of the Adidas Yeezy 350 V2 Black I came up with 580. If we were to use this number and plug it into our equation we would come up with
Number of pairs made = 357 x 580 -150712= 56348 pairs or let say 60,000 pairs made.
Now let’s do it based on our usual assumptions
- I’ll assume that most stores will be receiving a total of 60 pairs based on my previous post
- Let’s also assume the rest of the world will receive 2/3 of the total inventory while Adidas USA and major/minor US retailers receive about 1/3.
- We’ll also take into consideration that the online stores of the rest of the World will receive about 1/4 of the inventory the physical stores are given.
Rest of the World=( 495) x 60 pairs=29700 pairs for physical locations
online locations= 29700/4=7425
Total for rest of the world =29700 +7425= 37125 or round it off to 38,000 pairs
USA inventory 38000/3=12375 let’s take it up to 13000
TOTAL INVENTORY BASED ON ASSUMPTIONS =38000+ 13000=510000 pairs
There is a difference of 9000 pairs between using the linear model and the regular assumptions so use whichever one you think suits you best ( and don’t forget to take everything with a grain of salt).
My first destination when it comes to checking for the market value for a shoe is always eBay but I think it’s time for me to make the paradigm shift. What I’m trying to say is when it comes to high end items, eBay isn’t the most accurate source anymore since the sales recorded on the platform ( when it comes to the high end sneakers) are very minimal. For the black Yeezy 350 V2, the legitimate sales I recorded were about 10, see screenshot below
The market value via eBay is around the low $400’s; the retail price of the sneaker is $225 + tax ( let say $238.5). The mark up is about $150 ( 67.71%) which is pretty good if you ask me. Now let’s see what stockX is showing right now.
StockX recorded about 156 sales and the mark up on the platform is incredible ( 172.7%) with a ridiculous $652 average market value. You can see on the left end corner how the values are very irregular. We definitely have confirmation that this shoe is worth the hunt, so heck yes YOU SHOULD BUY TO FLIP..
