Spread the love

The Nike Kobe 6 Grinch will officially release on December the 24th in keeping with Kobe’s number and retails for $180. The colorway was originally released on Christmas day 2010. The Lakers were facing the Miami Heat, a game that Kobe and the Lakers lost by 16 points. The Heat had their loaded team comprised of Lebron James, D Wade, Chris Bosh and the other role players. The shoe features  a scaly, reptile-inspired upper with lime green coloring reminiscent of Kobe’s Black Mamba persona. Today we’ll try to come up with an estimate of the possible number of pairs that were released and the shoe’s current resale value. First let’s get a count of the stockists allocated an inventory in addition to Nike.

Major Retailers: Footlocker( in store and online), Dicks

Minor Retailers & Boutiques: Shoepalace, Shiekh, Private.Sneakers Oneness, Nicekicks, SNS

Now that we have a list of the stores that will carry the Kobe 6 Grinch, let’s set up our assumptions

We’ll go with the following:

  1. FTL will receive 40% of the total inventory
  2. Nike will receive about 30%
  3. the remaining major & minor retailers ( and boutiques as well )will receive the remaining 30%

I counted a total of  72 Footlocker physical stores that were going to carry the shoe, so we’ll add the following assumptions

  1. Each FTL will receive about 48 pairs
  2. FTL online  will receive about a 1/2 of the total the physical stores are receiving

Running The Numbers:

Footlocker ( stores)= 72 x 48= 3456 pairs

Footlocker (online)= 3456 x (1/2)=1728 pairs

Footlocker’s total= 5184 pairs let’s stretch it to 5500 pairs

Since Footlocker’s allocation represents about 40% of the total number of pairs produced for the USA then

Total for North America= (5500)+(5500)+(2750)= 13750 pairs let’s say 15,000 pairs

and the number of pairs produced worldwide might fall within the 20,000 pairs <# of pairs produced < 30,000 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.

Now let’s see how the shoe is doing on third party marketplaces

The chart above gives you a breakdown of the average resale value by day. We can cut the gordian nut and project the resale value of the Kobe 6 Grinch between $380 and $400. Profit margins will fall within the ( $154, $170) interval for mark ups within the (81% to 89%) range. Let’s also look at sizes with the highest margins

nike kobe 6 grinch resale value vs size

You can pretty much see that sizes 9-14 and 15-16 yield to the highest returns ranging from $360-$448. Smaller sizes ( 7-8.5) yield to returns within the $293-$334 interval and size 15 also yield to a $330 return. The shoe is certainly going to sell out instantly via retail and will continue to rise in value as time progresses.
