how many pairs made

The Air Jordan 6 Flint is making its official debut on Saturday December the 12th and my primary task was to come up with an estimate of the number of pairs made. I don’t think I’ll dive deep into the projection because the shoe is already available on eBay for below retail. All the major retailers and  some minor retailers are receiving an inventory and let me show you a quick list of stockists I’ve already counted beside Nike Major: Footlocker and its derivatives ( Champs, Footaction and Eastbay), Finishline, Hibbett Minor: Ruvilla/DTLR, KicksUSA, Sheikh, Citygear, Jimmyjazz I’ll make some quick assumptions and give youRead More →

The Air Jordan 8 VIII South Beach  will be available for purchase on Saturday October the 13th. Figuring out the number of pairs produced will be my task this morning. The first thing that needs to be done is taking a count of the number of retailers that will be allocated an inventory. For this particular release, only major retailers were given an inventory- Footlocker & family, Finishline, Hibbett and let’s not forget to add Nike of course. We’ll consider the following assumptions, .Footlocker and its derivatives will receive about 1/3 of the total inventory .Each store will receive about 24 pairs ( I’m saying thisRead More →

The Air Jordan 4 Raptors will officially release on August the 18th; the shoes were inspired by the Raptors’s uniform/logo colors.They feature a premium black nubuck upper with purple highlights on the midsole, tongue and heel panel. I thought the shoes were supposed to be a quick strike until I took a look at Footlocker launch locator. I decided to take a different route today to figure out the number of pairs available in the US market. Basically what I’ll do is go state by state and provide you with the number of stores per state; the only challenge would be to come up withRead More →

I already wrote two posts expressing my issue with the ridiculous $250 price tag on the Air Jordan 11 Cap And Gown, see post below Packaging Of The Prom Night Jordan 11 Revealed | $250 Still Unjustified Let’s now figure out how many pairs were produced by using my usual assumptions: .Footlocker and its derivatives ( FTA,Champs and Eastbay) receive about 1/4 of the total inventory .Each HOH location will be allocated about 18 pairs .Footlocker online will probably receive half of the inventory the physical locations are given I counted a total of 170 Footlocker stores ( probably HOH ) that are allocated an inventory.Read More →

Derek Jeter Air Jordan 11 Retro Low Re2pect will make its official debut on May the 14th and I’m sure everyone is wondering how many pairs of the shoes were made. To come up with a believable estimate, we’ll consider several possibilities. Nike never truly discloses what criteria is used to determine how many units of a certain product are going to be manufactured. But there are certain tendencies that are always recurring with Nike. In the case of the Derek Jeter Jordan 11 low, I think the brand might use his age, jersey number, number of home runs in deciding how many units toRead More →

We received news of the official release date of the 2018 Air Jordan 1 shadow yesterday- they are scheduled to drop on April the 14th. They were originally released in 1985 and made a return in 2013. They come in a black and grey color combination and feature premium leather materials. I know at this point the question on every sneakerhead’s mind is: how many pairs is Nike going to make and will I be able to get my hands on it? Nike has been employing a very effective strategy with its most sought after sneakers and I believe the same will apply with theRead More →

I promised I was going to write a post about the possible number of pairs of the Air Jordan 1 Gold Toe All Star that were made, so here it is. This is going to be a bit ambiguous because neither Footlocker nor Nike have provided enough information for me to build a strong and reliable case. So the premises on which I made my predictions came from observations I’ve made from  previous releases. Assertion #1 Footlocker Release Calendar   There are two very important details that can’t be overlooked. First, notice that in the picture I shared above, out of all  8 pairs, two areRead More →
