The Air Jordan 1 High Electro Orange is set to officially release on Saturday July the 17th and retails for $170. The upper of this electric edition is covered in White and Black to produce a clean makeup before a charged-up color pops through. The outsole, collar, tongue, and insole are all accented in Electro Orange, producing an unique color-blocking scheme for one of the game’s most coveted pairs of sneakers. I wrote a post on how to spot fake pairs yesterday, be sure to check it out by viewing the post below
Today we will attempt to come up with an estimate of the possible number of pairs made and the shoe’s current resale value. But first, let’s get a quick count on the list of major and minor retailers given an inventory beside Nike.
There are also boutiques getting it, but their numbers won’t affect our projection that much. Now let’s set up our assumptions
- Footlocker, Champs, Footaction and Eastbay will receive about 30% of the entire inventory for North America
- Finishline, JD sports, Hibbett will be given about 25% of the inventory
- Minor retailers and boutiques will be given 20% and Nike will also acquire 25% of the inventory
- FTL, Champs and Footaction online will receive about 1/2 of the inventory the physical stores are getting
- Eastbay will receive 1/4 of the total FTL and Champs online are getting
Now we need to figure out the total number of Footlocker, Champs and Footaction stores that will be allocated. Once we get ahold of that number , we can also come up with the number of pairs given to each physical store and calculate our numbers. Based on my observations, I’ll assume 30% of all footlocker, and 20% of footaction and Champs stores will be allocated, that is 300 FTLs, 109 Champs and 51 Footaction stores. Now we’ll also add the following assumptions:
- Regular Footlocker will be given about 24pairs per store
- HOH locations will receive 70 pairs
- Champs and Footaction will be given 24 pairs
Now let’s run our numbers:
Regular Footlocker: 130 x 24 pairs =3120 pairs
HOH locations: 170 x 70 pairs = 11,900 pairs
Footaction: 51 x 24 pairs=1224 pairs
Champs: 109 x 24 pairs=2616 pairs
(FTL+ Champs + FTA )online= (3120+11900+1224+2616)/2= 9430 pairs
Eastbay= 9430/4 =2358 pairs
Total for FTL and its derivatives= (3120+11900+1224+2616) +(9430) pairs+( 2358) pairs=30648 pairs, let’s stretch this number to 35,000 pairs because possible errors in our assumptions
Since we assumed at the outset that this number represented about 30% of the entire inventory for North America then we can conclude that the Grand total for the USA= (35,000 x 3) pairs + (35,000/3 pairs=116667 let say 120,000 pairs when rounded off.
And we can conclude that the worldwide production will sit within the 120,000 pairs < global production < 300, 000 pairs
PS: As you all know, I always have to add this disclaimer because every single projection that I make is purely based on assumptions that I have set. It is meant to give you an idea of what to expect, I don’t work any of these brands/retailers I mentioned and have no access to their numbers. I’m only using what is available to create plausible assumptions.
Air Jordan 1 High Electro Orange Resale Value
The chart above gives you a breakdown of the average resale value of the shoe between June the 16th and July the 14th. July 8 had the highest average sold price at $374.99. And after that, there was a sudden decline ( by 38%) and the price plateaued at $231 ever since. I don’t foresee any changes anytime soon. If you’re looking to make homeruns, this isn’t the shoe for it. And I wouldn’t encourage anyone to hold on to it either. It might take a year before we see any drastic change in the price. Based on the average resale price, folks are looking at profit margins right around $35.
