Although January 2020 will not be engulfed with as many hyped shoes as December 2019, we’ve still got the rest of the year to look forward to, right?

The year of 2019 as a whole was flooded with exclusive collaborations, Ye releasing different models, Jordan Brand blessing the sneaker world with their iconic iterations, and various luxurious brands giving a sping on their own streetwear makeovers.

Additionally, February will become a hype-sneaker redemption month after a dry January, so be motivated.

However, don’t hit the snooze on the month of January altogether, as a Nike x CLOT collaboration is looming and Ye looks to drop the first Yeezy 350 of 2019 soon after.

2020 is a hot year for the sneaker resale market which is making many individuals, including teenagers, legit sneaker business operators— this list will show you why.

Edison Chen had successfully shaken the sneaker community last year, with the Blue Silk and Fragment renditions of his prevalent Air Force 1 makeovers.

What started as a trend years ago at the Nike 1World Air Force 1 project, introducing the Silk material, the trend continues to trickle into the year 2020.

Following the aforementioned blue and black color schemes, enters the “Rose Gold Silk” colorway that follows similar construction.

The upper includes the same silky material and Chinese designs in its respective rose gold hue, atop a white midsole, and gum outsole.

Branding is seen on the insoles of the shoe and tongue with the “Nike Air” imprint overlapping Edison Chen’s signature logo.

Since this is a CLOT and Nike collaboration, the resale and demand will perform parallel to the previous Nike Air Force 1 x CLOT partnerships.

As a result, the resale value will appeal to many resellers, so stay up to date with Six Figure Sneakerhead to increase your chance at acquiring such a profitable pair.

The Nike SB Dunk is growing popularity and it has the potential to become the model of the year in 2020, however, don’t quote me on that.

Travis Scott’s collaboration usually means hues of brown with his trademark logo on the shoe’s tongue. The brown hue is found on the toe and heel collar.

In addition, the shoe features unique designs on the quarter panel underneath a dark blue Nike swoosh, all atop a light brown outsole.

The year 2019 introduced a Game Royal rendition in a unique fragment model, but 2020 warrants Jordan Brand to release a black upper, white midsole, and blue outsole edition.

Although this Jordan 1 edition isn’t one of the flashier ones, the two-tone shoe will be a classic look that should allure many of the sneaker community.

All resellers mark your calendars for this shoe, as it’s safe to say there will be hype and profitability behind this Jordan 1.

The highly anticipated shoe will boast a white and grey upper, but the “Air Dior” text in the Wings logo will unequivocally steal the show.

A smooth and sleek light grey upper compliments the white hue on the toe and quarter panels.

Furthermore, the artsy Nike swoosh features an excellent color-blocking to the rest of the palette.

If you want this shoe, you’ll need to have deep pockets as the shoe shouldn’t be less than $2,000.

As a result, if you have the capital to invest two grand, it would pay dividends.

Thanks to Complex and Yeezy Mafia, we have early release pictures, however, there is no resale value from Stockx since it is too early.

The shoe looks like a combination of the Yeezy Azaels and Yeezy 350 v2, and includes the Yeezy brand’s popular primeknit upper.

In addition, it appears that there will be hints of 3M across the side panel.

Finally, black shoelaces are featured in the middle atop an all-white outsole.

Since this is the first Ye basketball model, we can expect a high resale value between $500 to $800.

Potential Profit: $340

Rumored to release February 2020, the Sacai LDWaffle is slated for a headline release, but it will be difficult to match their huge success last year.

The shoe will be similar to the popular model we’ve seen before of the LDWaffle, this time, featuring a monochromatic black and white colorways.

In addition, the double layers and double Nike swoosh sneaker continues to exist on the model. Last year, the original blue and red colorway was the most profitable sneaker of the various low-cut and high package.

The resale on this particular colorway reached over $1,000 during its pre-release days and the individuals that held the shoe were rewarded with higher resale payout.

With that being said, the looming release of more low-cut models should bode well in the resale market.

In laymens term, if you can get your hands on either black or white for retail, check out quickly.
