Nike continues to innovate and expand its Jordan 1 line, consistently introducing fresh collaborations. However, some of these projects, in my view, would benefit from a more thorough creative process. One such example is the Air Jordan 1 x UNION x Bephies Beauty Supply collaboration.
While this particular design may not resonate with me personally, I am aware that many sneaker enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting its release. The shoe’s design is a nostalgic nod to the summer when Chris and Beth, the founders of UNION and Bephies Beauty Supply, first met. It beautifully intertwines past and present, leaving room for individual styling interpretations for the future.
The woven details beautifully encapsulate the journey of these industry leaders. The aged accents are a tribute to streetwear’s formative years, while the color-popped stitching adds an electrifying touch, much like the spark ignited when one falls in love.
It’s always intriguing to see how Nike leverages personal narratives and nostalgia in their designs, even if the final product may not appeal to everyone’s tastes. This collaborative effort is a testament to the brand’s commitment to storytelling and innovation, even if it may require some further refinement. If you’re interested in picking up a pair, refer to the details below

Resale Value: Union Air Jordan 1 Beauty Supply
The chart presents us with a breakdown of the average sale price of the shoe since August 23,2023 on third party marketplaces. As the records show, prices went from $312 down to $268 within a 24 hour span, that’s a very rapid decline, but it could be due to variations in sizes, we’ll see what the five number summary reveals,
Quartile Q1: 263.75
Quartile Q3: 317.75
The lowest the shoe sold for was $225 for a size 8 while the highest recorded sale was $542, size 15 ( not a surprise, it’s a scarce size). 25% of the shoes sold between $225 and $264, while half of them sold between $264 ad $318. The remaining 25% sold between $318 and $542 and there were four outliers: $416, $425,$430, and $542 corresponding to sizes 9,13,13 and 15.
With these outliers disregarded, the overall average resale value is $291 with a 13% volatility so you can expect about 70% of the shoes to sell between $254 and $328, leading to profit margins between +$20 and +$72 ( 9% mark up or 34% mark up), that’s pretty good. But you must know what sizes to target, refer to the chart below
This probably one of the best shoes to resell this month, as you can see from the records, every single pair led to earnings above $20, with sizes 10.5,11,11.5,12.5,13 and 15 leading to astronomical margins. So if you’re looking for a shoe with some homerun returns, this pair of Jordan 1 Union is certainly it.
