2019 air jordan 4 iv cool grey 308497-007

Nike hasn’t yet confirmed the actual release date of the 2019 Air Jordan 4 IV Cool Grey but according to several sneaker blogs, the shoe will officially release on August the 3rd. I shouldn’t have been surprised by its $190 suggested retail price but I couldn’t shake off the fact that when the shoe was originally introduced in 2004, it cost $100. So how did Nike go from $100 to $190? To answer that question, we need to take a look at the inflation and how it affected the value of the shoe. But according to the cpi calculator the 2019 Air Jordan 4 coolRead More →

2019 Air Jordan 11 Black Red Bred Will Supposedly Feature The #23 At The Heel

Nike wanted to switch things up a bit by replacing the iconic #23 on the back of the Jordan 11 silhouette with the #45 that originally was spotted on Nike’s early samples. The #45 project started with the 2017 Air Jordan 11 Space Jam; it was followed recently by the 2018 Jordan 11 Concord. Both models were highly anticipated and sold out via retail. The only thing that I noticed was the “not so great” resale value of both  models in third party marketplaces. The Space Jam 11 has a current market value in the low $300’s ( for a 22.7% mark up) and theRead More →

Three pairs were included in the Reflections of a Champion pack i.e the Jordan 6,7 and 8. Nike chose to give the 6’s exclusively to major retailers i.e Footlocker, Finishline and Hibbett while the 7’s and 8’s were given to both major and minor chains. I wrote a projection post on the Jordan 6 a couple of days ago and came up with a total of 48,000 pairs made and predicted poor retail sales as well, see post below Air Jordan 6 Retro Reflections Of A Champion CI4072-001| How Many Pairs Possibly Made?

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 xRead More →

air jordan 7 ray allen pe bucks pe 304775 053

Greek The Freak and the Milwaukee Bucks lost the Eastern Conference Final to an experienced Toronto team. A win and NBA final could’ve have been a catalyst to better sales of the upcoming Air Jordan 7 Ray Allen PE. I can’t prove the statement I made in the previous substance mathematically but I do think that the Bucks’s loss in the ECF will hurt the sales performance of the AJ 7 Ray Allen PE to some extent. My job today is to come up with an estimate of the possible number of pairs made and I’ll employ my usual method. Footlocker, FTA and Champs willRead More →

The SB X Air Jordan 1 NYC To Paris is officially releasing on Saturday May the 25th and I wanted to determine the number of pairs that Nike could’ve produced. Usually to come up with my estimate, I employ a very rigorous method i.e. counting up the number of FTL stores allocated an inventory and then leaning on a few assumptions. I won’t be doing that today since I have established a linear equation for shoes with similar pattern. The Air Jordan 1 Crimson released about a month ago and the SB Jordan 1 NYC To Paris seems to be patterned after the Crimson’s, soRead More →

Air Jordan 11 High Snakeskin Pink & Light Bone

I know you’ve heard me say this before but I’ll say it again; bootleggers are definitely a quick window  into Nike’s upcoming release calendar. Nike dropped three colorways of the Jordan 11 lows in the past three weeks and I don’t think they are selling as well as they should via Retail. I actually wrote two quick release reports on two of the models we were served, see link below Air Jordan 11 Low Snakeskin Pink AH7860-106 | Quick Release Report & Observations Chris from ARCH told me during one of our many phone conversations Man, I could’ve told you that those Jordan 11 lowRead More →
