Should You Buy To Flip?

I’ve been very bored with sneaker related news as of late; nothing has been exciting and in the process I haven’t invested anytime in studying the market value of the latest shoes that have dropped. It’s no secret that the Yeezy sneakers have reached a plateau and consequently there is no other brand that is really challenging Nike right now. Champion and Fila are making a lot of strides in various areas ( clothing and certain sneakers) but for the most part Nike continues to dominate sneaker news. A few days ago, I was talking to my good friend Kevin ( probably the biggest airRead More →

I already wrote two posts expressing my issue with the ridiculous $250 price tag on the Air Jordan 11 Cap And Gown, see post below Packaging Of The Prom Night Jordan 11 Revealed | $250 Still Unjustified Let’s now figure out how many pairs were produced by using my usual assumptions: .Footlocker and its derivatives ( FTA,Champs and Eastbay) receive about 1/4 of the total inventory .Each HOH location will be allocated about 18 pairs .Footlocker online will probably receive half of the inventory the physical locations are given I counted a total of 170 Footlocker stores ( probably HOH ) that are allocated an inventory.Read More →

I already wrote a post about the numbered version of the Air Jordan 1 NRG Homage To Home several weeks ago, see link below How Will The 2300 Pairs Of The Air Jordan 1 Homage To Home Be Split? The numbered version was limited to 2300 pairs and my gut feeling is telling me that Nike has probably produced 23,000 pairs of the GR edition. I want to be more than just pragmatic so let’s try to see if we can come up with a reliable estimate mathematically. So far, assuming that Footlocker & its derivatives ( FTA, Champs, Eastbay) receive (1/3 or 1/4) of theRead More →

Derek Jeter Air Jordan 11 Retro Low Re2pect will make its official debut on May the 14th and I’m sure everyone is wondering how many pairs of the shoes were made. To come up with a believable estimate, we’ll consider several possibilities. Nike never truly discloses what criteria is used to determine how many units of a certain product are going to be manufactured. But there are certain tendencies that are always recurring with Nike. In the case of the Derek Jeter Jordan 11 low, I think the brand might use his age, jersey number, number of home runs in deciding how many units toRead More →

March the 24th is going to be a BIG DAY for Nike; the brand is releasing a total of three marquee sneakers and each one of them is bound to have a substantial resale value. I wrote a post about all three releases this week, see link below Air Jordan 1 Game Royal, Jordan 3 Tinker, Air Max 1/97 SW All On March 24 In this afternoon post , I wanted to determine the current market value of the Air Jordan 1 Game Royal. To do this , we’ll first need to come up with an estimate of the total number of pairs produced ( supply/demand). IRead More →

I was asked to do a quick research on the current market value of the Air Jordan 6 NRG Gatorade green a couple of days ago. I finally got to it today and wanted to share my findings with you. Let me quickly set the stage though; unlike the white & orange Gatorade 6 that dropped last week, this model is a bit limited but not as scarce as many people think. It seems like this is going to be a HOH ( House of hoops) only exclusive and I’m assuming that each location will probably have between 12 and 24 pairs. The shoes willRead More →

The Nike Air More Uptempo erupted like a volcano this year when Nike decided to treat the shoe like the Air Force 1 and release so many pointless colorways. It eventually led many folks to develop a disdain towards the sneakers . The uptempo was a classic shoe of the 90´s that carried a lot of warm memories; after bringing back the original colorways, Nike should’ve put the shoe back in the vault. What the brand did was ill advised and the consequences are disastrous.I️ think the city inspired models are Nike’s subtle way of repainting the image of the uptempo but it may beRead More →

What I’m about to say in the next couple of paragraphs is entirely based on my own interpretation based on past observations and my background in mathematics. Jordan Brand dropped the Jordan 11 win like 96 incognito  a few days ago in select locations. It was to be expected because the same thing was done with its predecessor, the Jordan 11 win like 82. I was at my local mall a week and a half ago and an older gentleman was inquiring about the Win like 96; he was very concerned about not securing a pair. I chuckled a bit and realized that he wasn’tRead More →

I have received several text messages and calls from guys aspiring to get into the “shoe game” ; and 99.9% of them ask for the same thing- air jordan sneakers. I do my best to tell them to discard the idea in their heads but they don’t listen; they all think they will make a fortune reselling sneakers and for reference they name guys like Sole supremacy on ebay who has supposedly sold about a million worth of merchandise ( mostly jordans). But one thing they fail to understand is that selling a million dollars worth of products doesn’t mean your profit is a million dollars.Read More →
