The Nike Kobe 6 All Star Protro is set to release on March the 8th and retails for $200. The shoe was originally released in 2011 in celebration of the All Star Festivities where Kobe’s 37 points and 14 rebounds earned him the MVP award. The shoe features a reptilian upper dressed in Red, Black, and White reminiscent of the West’s squad team colors. I wanted to come up with a plausible estimate of the number of pairs made today and the shoe’s current resale value as well. When I was working on the projection’s post of the Kobe 6 Grinch , I came up with the following estimate, 20,000 pairs <# of pairs produced < 30,000 pairs.
But for the Kobe 6 Protro All star, less retailers seem to have been given an inventory. As of now, here is the list of stockists I came up with beside Nike.
Major Retailers: Dicks
Minor Retailers: None
Based on this information, I can assure you that the shoe will be extremely limited. So I’ll consider the following assumptions:
We’ll go with the following:
- Dicks will receive 40% of the total inventory
- Nike will receive 60%
- We’ll assume that only 10% of the Dicks stores will receive an inventory
- We’ll assign each store a total of 12 pairs
Dicks’ allocation= 85 x 12= 1020 pairs which represents about 40% of the total inventory based on our assumptions
Total number of pairs made for North America= (1020) pairs + (1020) pairs + (1020/2) pairs = 2550 pairs in total for the USA and we can assume that the total number of pairs made worldwide will be 2500 pairs < Global production < 5000 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 talk about resale
The chart above gives you a breakdown of the resale value of the shoe by size. I’ve also added in green the profit/loss by size. You can use the chart to gauge what sizes to aim for if you’re reseller. Just because a shoe is limited doesn’t necessarily mean that it will have a high value in the resale market.
