Athleticism and celebrity culture are often intertwined in today’s society, which is why the Nike Ja 1 Hunger shoe release evokes mixed emotions. The shoe’s name is incredibly fitting, as Ja Morant has been a hungry athlete, eager to make his mark on the court. However, his off-court antics might hinder his promising career. Despite this, the Ja 1 “Hunger” is one of Nike’s most sought-after releases, and basketball players everywhere are vying for a pair.
Ja Morant’s rise is a story of perseverance and dedication. The shoe comes in contrasting colors that represent the journey that Ja Morant went through in his life. It captures the difficulties he faced growing up and his sheer determination to make it to the NBA. The sneaker embodies Ja’s belief that nothing in life comes easy and that everything is earned through the grace of God, hard work, dedication, and perseverance. I wrote an entire article about his journey to the league, see link below

Now let’s see how the shoe is performing on third party marketplaces
Resale Value: Nike Ja 1 Hunger
The chart above gives us a summary of the average sale price of the shoe since May 20,2023. As you can see from the records, prices went from $236 down to $196 within a 5 day span , decreasing by roughly $8.66 per day. Let’s see what the five number summary reveals.
Quartile Q1: 197.25
Quartile Q3: 230.75
The lowest the shoe sold for was $165 for a size 9.5 while the highest sale recorded as $279 for a size 6.5. About 25% of the shoes sold between $165 and $197 ( see next chart for a size breakdown). Half sold between $197 and $231 and the top 25% sales were from $231 to $279. There were no outliers and the overall average resale value is $214 with a 12% volatility ( below normal).
At $214, you’re looking at a +$78 profit margin, a 67% mark up (4.4 times above average), that’s actually really good. But let’s see what sizes lead to the best margins.
About 47% of the sales led to profit margins between $60 and $70 ( sizes 5,8,9,9.5,10,12.5, and 13). 27% generated earnings between $75 and $95 ( sizes 7.5,8.5, 11.5 and 12). And sizes 6.5,10.5 and 14 led to the highest margins with respective returns of $144, $101 and $105.
The verdict is clear, despite Ja’s recent antics, his signature shoe is still trending and very popular and the Hunger edition certainly proves the point. It is definitely a shoe worth reselling as mark ups are more than 4 times above average. The best sizes to aim for are very small sizes and larger sizes but any size in between those is just as good, you will not be making a decent profit.
