Air Jordan 12 Chinese New Year CNY| How Many Pairs Possibly Made & Market Value

Sharing is caring!

It seems as if January took forever to be done with and February is just flying by. I totally forgot that the Air Jordan 12 Chinese New Year CNY was dropping tomorrow and just realized that I never wrote any projection post on the shoe. So I decided to use the next 30 mn to do so and fortunately for me I’ve already gathered a bit of “intel” on the number of stockists that were appropriated an inventory. The following major and minor retailers have been confirmed per my investigation: Nike of course then Footlocker & its minions ( Footaction, Champs), Finishline and representing the minor retailers are KicksUSA, Jimmy Jazz, Shoe Palace and Citygear. I might have omitted some  but this is enough information to make a bold prediction; I’ll also lean on my usual assumptions:

  •  Nike gets 2/5 of the total inventory, Footlocker and its derivatives get 2/5 and  Finishline and minor retailers will split the remaining 1/5
  • Each physical FTL,FTA & Champs will receive about 18 pairs
  • FTL,FTA and Champs online will get about 1/3 of the total the physical stores receive

Now let’s compute our numbers:

About  335 FTL stores will be given an inventory ( all HOH included plus select other FTL stores), 270 FTA stores and 133 Champs stores will be considered.

FTL numbers= 335 x 18=6030 and FTA = 270 x 18=4860 and Champs = 133 x 18 =2394. Now let’s estimate the online stores’s numbers,

(FTL + FTA + Champs )online = (6030+4860+ 2394)/3=4428

Total from Footlocker & derivatives = 6030+ 4860+2394+4428=17712 or 18000 pairs

Grand Total would be =(18000 x 5)/2=450000 pairs

Let’s see if the current market value of the shoes will support my findings

MARKET VALUE

eBay:

The following confirmed sales were recorded: $330, $283, $268, $308, $322.99, $246.45, $246.45, $275, $300, $246.45, $246.45, $230, $230, $230. I will stick to these because the other sales originated from a seller with a low feedback ( not very reliable). Based on the list above the average market value via eBay is :

$3762.8/14= $268.77

It’s important to stress the fact that some of the sales occurred right before mid-January hence the high value but overall $268 seems like the norm at this point. Let’s check StockX’s numbers:

StockX’s average is $16 less than eBay’s so I’d say that based on both platforms, $260 will probably be a good estimate for the current market value of the Air Jordan 12 Chinese New Year ( CNY).

The sneakers are going to be great for retailers that were given an inventory, they will be relatively easy to get based on the consumer’s effort. I expect the shoe progressively increase in value within the next couple of months ( maybe at a rate of $10 a month) I’ll monitor its progress and give you an update.
