The Air Jordan 1 Black Satin Gym Red is releasing officially on Saturday January the 18th. The shoe will retail for $170 before tax and I attempted to come up with a number of pairs that could’ve been possibly made.
Our first step will involve figuring out the number of stockists allocated an inventory. My quick investigation led to the findings below
Beside Nike, here are the major & minor retailers that will be carrying the Air Jordan 1 Black Satin On January the 18th.
Major Retailers: Footlocker, Footaction, Finishline, Hibbett
Minor Retailers: DTLR/Ruvilla, Jimmy Jazz, Shoepalace, Sheikh Shoes,Shoecity, KicksUSA so far
We can also take into consideration all the sneaker boutiques, such as Ubiq, Extra butter NY, Shopnicekicks, Wish ATL, Bait, Bodea, Bows N Arrows, Oneness, Packer Shoes,Sneaker Politics just to name these.
The next part in this process will involve setting up our assumptions and then computing the numbers. We first need to know if this model will be a a GR ( general release) or not, and it is indeed a GR, which means it will be available in substantial quantities, just take a look at the maps below
1.Based on the information above I’ll assume that Nike will take a 1/4 of the production, Footlocker & Footaction will also receive 1/4 , Finishline, Hibbett will split another 1/4, and minor chains all together will account for the remaining 1/4. I’m only considering North America in this post ( notice that I didn’t include international locations).
2.We’ll also assign an average of 18 pairs per FTL store, 12 per FTA store; and lastly we’ll give the online stores about 1/3 of the total the physical stores are given.
Running Our Numbers
Footlocker’s physical store numbers based on our assumptions: 18 x 900=16200
Footaction’s numbers ( physical sores): 272 x 12=3240
Total ( FTL+ FTA) in stores=19440
Total ( FTL+ FTA ) online=19440/3=6480
Grand Total ( online + in stores)= 19440 + 6480=25920
And the number of pairs possibly made for North America is : 25920 x4=103680 or take it up to 105,000 for North AMERICA
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.
