When it comes to Nike and its subsidiary, Jordan Brand, there’s no denying that they’re masters of capitalizing on their customer’s wants. The latest project coming out of the sportswear giant’s lab, the Air Jordan 1 high OG Craft Vibrations of Naija, is a testament to the brand’s marketing prowess. This shoe is set to be another addition to the never-ending line of Air Jordan 1 re-releases, but with a unique twist.
Naija is a pidgin term for Nigeria, and back in 2020, Nike released three distinct shoes to celebrate Nigeria. The success of the project prompted the creation of the upcoming Jordan 1 High Naija. This release pays homage to Nigeria’s rich cultural heritage and the way Nigerians have embraced and infused fashion into their culture.
The shoe features a Sail, Pale Vanilla, and Black color scheme. It is constructed with a seasonally inspired premium leather and double-layered canvas materials. These details result in a textured, and premium finish that have sneakerheads won’t be able to resist. If you’re looking to grab a pair, refer to the release details below

Resale Value: Jordan 1 High Craft Naija
The chart displayed above provides a summary of the average sale price by size, along with the corresponding returns for each transaction. As evident from the data, every sale resulted in significant losses, with some reaching as high as $57. How can we account for this ? There are two possible explanations. The first possibility is that retailers may be discreetly offloading their inventory on third-party marketplaces where seller identities remain untraceable. The second, and more plausible explanation, is that the shoes are likely available at the Nike employee store, where they are being sold at discounts of up to 50% below the retail price.
If you were planning on reselling the Jordan 1 High Vibrations of Naija, I hope you abandon that idea. This is a microcosm of the current state of sneaker resale especially with General Release sneakers. I actually wrote a post about that several years ago, se link below

This is great news for buyers, as prices are currently below the MSRP. But this is also good news for long term investors, the demand on the Jordan 1 High Naija is high, so now is the time to rack up as many pairs as possible. This is a shoe that will eventually reach the low $300’s probably within the next 18+ months.
