The Air Jordan 13 Red Flint is set to officially release on May the 1st and retails for $190. This is the first time this colorway is being introduced and it has the whole sneaker world buzzing. Here is what Nike.com had to say about it
The Air Jordan 13 first hit shelves in November 1997 as MJ rocked the singular silhouette in pursuit of his sixth world title. Nearly 6 months later, the design debuted its “Flint Grey” colorway—a look that instantly became a must-have for both ballers and footwear aficionados. 23 years later, we’re breathing new life into that makeup with a bold infusion of Gym Red. Grab this heritage-inspired hybrid just in time for another deep playoff run.
Now let’s try to come up with a plausible estimate of the number of pairs possibly made and the current resale value of the Red Fling Jordan 13. First let’s get a count of major and minor stores allocated an inventory beside Nike in North America.
Now let’s et up our assumptions. Before we do that we need to recall that Nike dropped about 5 pairs of Jordan 13’s within the span of a year, the latest being the Jordan 13 Black Hyper royal. Most of these 13’s fell in the category of general release sneakers, and the number of pairs made were substantial. I’m very confident that the Red Flint 13 will also be produced in significant quantities. Let’s set up our assumptions.
We’ll go with the following:
- FTL, FTA, Champs and Eastbay will receive ⅓ of the total inventory
- The remaining major & minor retailers will receive the remaining ⅓
We’ll also add the following assumptions:
- Each regular FTL will receive about 12 pairs, while FTA and Champs will be assigned 12 pairs per store
- Their online stores will receive about a 1/3 of the total the physical stores are receiving
- Eastbay will also receive another 1/3 from the total FTL, FTA and Champs online are receiving.
- HOH locations will be given about 70 pairs each
Running The Numbers:
FTL Physical stores=830 x 12= 9960pairs
HOH = 170 x70=11900 pairs
FTA Physical stores=271×12= 3252 pairs
Champs Physical stores= 547x 12=6564 pairs
Online allocation ( FTL + FTA + Champs)=31676/3=10559 pairs
Eastbay= 10559/3=3520 pairs
Total from FTL, FTA, Champs and Eastbay = (9960+ 11900+ 3252+6564+10559+3520) pairs =45755 pairs let’s say 50,000 pairs because of possible errors in the assumptions
We already established that this number represented about 1/3 of the entire production for North America so the grand total would be:
T= 50000 x3=150,000 pairs
Since this number only represents the production for North America, we can conclude that the total number of pairs made would fall within the
150,000 < Number of Possibly Pairs Made< 300,000
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.
Jordan 13 Red Flint Resale Value
The chart above gives you a breakdown of the resale value by size. Based on the records, larger sizes are fetching more revenues and more profits. The profit is in green so you know approximately what sizes to aim for. These are the current values, let’s find the regression equation to see what approximately what the shoe will be worth by the time May 1st arrives. The resale price has a slightly negative trend and the equation that models this data is:
Resale= -1.19( Time elapsed since April 20th) + $345
Based on this equation the resale value of the Jordan 13 Red flint on May 1st will be =- 1.19 x (11) +$345= $331.91 let say $332. So we can conclude that the resale value will sit within the $330 to $345 interval at the exception possible outliers.
