Air Jordan 1 High| History

Vectors and Icons

The Air Jordan 1 is perhaps the most popular Nike sneaker ever. It was made specially for the Chicago Bulls’ superstar, Michael Jordan after he signed with Nike in 1984. This was a highly popular sneaker and rose to fame along with the rising prospect, Michael Jordan.

The Air Jordan 1 released to the public soon after and was flying off shelves left and right. It was actually very popular at the time and most of that popularity can be credited to MJ himself.

Designed by the great Tinker Hatfield, it was to be something specifically designed for Michael. He hated the thick sole on the Air Force 1 and other characteristics of many Nike sneakers. Thus Hatfield had the difficult task of designing the perfect specialized sneaker for Michael Jordan.

At first, Michael hated them and thought they would make him “Look like a clown”. The Air Jordan however, began to grow on him and to Tinker’s relief, he approved them for use on the court shortly afterwards.

What followed was a legacy that will be emulated by very few sneakers, if any.

Nike Space Hippie & Crater Collection

From Moss and Fog

Nike has been involved in environmental conservation efforts for a while now. Their Flyknit technology is one example of Nike’s “Move to Zero” campaign where they plan to eliminate using plastic by 2030.

The Nike Flyknit sneakers such as the Nike Air VaporMax consists of materials that are 50% recycled. This means using plastic bottles, T-shirts and other items to make Yarn and recycled polyester. It’s also been noted that Nike uses the most recycled Polyester out of any other sports-wear company.

With the Space Hippie lineup, they’ve set the bar even higher for other manufacturers. The Nike Space Hippie sneakers unlike any other, are made almost entirely of recycled materials.

The Pack introduced 4 new, never before seen silhouettes that flew off shelves as soon as they were released. Not only are they highly sought after, they Space Hippie pack is also quite profitable on re-seller markets.

To estimate the resale value of the Air Jordan 1 High Zoom Space Hippie, let’s head on over to StockX. By assessing similar sneakers we can get a good idea of what to expect.

Nike Space Hippie 02 Grey Volt

From StockX

Retail Price: $150

Peak Resell: $450

Release Date: 07/16/2020

Colorway: Wolf Grey/Volt-Dark-Smoke Grey

This new 02 silhouette is only the second colorway ever created. It features a Wolf Grey upper made up of recycled yarn and polyester and a ‘Volt’ dotted Nike swoosh.

The Nike Space Hippie 02 ditches the lacing system for black stitching instead. A white and multi-colored be-speckled sole finishes off the design.

The resale price on StockX have fluctuated from mediocre to very profitable. The average current price on StockX is about $200. That’s gross profit of $50 per pair. Had you sold these at peak resale, gross profits would have been as high as $300.

I expect the Air Jordan 1 High Zoom Space Hippie to be quite a bit more profitable.

Out of the pack, the 02 and the 04 are the weakest and least hyped which explains the mediocre resale prices. For a more detailed look, see our article.

Nike Space Hippie 03 Vast Grey Hyper Crimson

From StockX

Retail Price: $180

Peak Resell: $650

Release Date: 07/03/2020

Colorway: Vast Grey/Hyper Crimson

The Nike Space Hippie 03 Vast Grey Hyper Crimson is the most limited out of the 4. That’s thanks to the Flyease lacing technology used which was produced in low quantities.

This sneaker comes in a high-top design with a grey upper while a crimson strap over the upper and on the heel embellish the design. A white crater foam out-sole completes the look.

These are one of the most profitable sneakers out of the pack. The average selling price on StockX is currently $367 which is an average gross profit of $187. Had you sold them at peak resale prices, gross profits would have been as high as $470.

Nike Space Hippie 03 Grey Volt

From StockX

Retail Price: $180

Peak Resell: $500

Release Date: 07/16/2020

Colorway: Wolf Grey/Black-Volt-Dark Smoke Grey

The Nike Space Hippie 03 Grey Volt is the second colorway ever released of this brand new silhouette. This sneaker is almost identical to the Hyper Crimson colorway with the exception of the Yellow plastic anchor on the mid-foot and the Volt hues.

On StockX, resale prices are slightly lower than its Hyper Crimson counterpart but they’re still quite lucrative. The average selling price is $288 which is a gross profit of over $100. At peak resale prices, gross profits are over $300.

I believe the Nike Air Jordan 1 High Zoom Space Hippie will have a very similar resale value to this particular sneaker.

Retail Price: $175

Estimated Resell: $280

Release Date: August/12/2020

Colorway: Black/Wolf Grey-Flash Crimson

As with other Nike Space Hippie sneakers, this Air Jordan 1 is inspired by life on mars with a focus on environmental sustainability. Which means, the majority of this sneaker is made up of recycled materials.

The Nike Air Jordan 1 High Zoom Space Hippie features a dark grey knit upper constructed with space waste yarn. The yarn is an end result of recycled polyester that uses T-shirts, plastic bottles and, yarn scraps as raw materials.

The sneaker also features crimson stitching on the heel and tongue while black padding covers the ‘Swoosh’ and around the collar. A white mid-sole and a crater foam grey/multi-color be-speckled out-sole finishes off the design.

Resale Value

We’ve seen before how well the ‘Space Hippie’ lineup has done on the primary and resale market. People really like these shoes! I expect the Air Jordan 1 Space Hippie to be no different although resale may not be as high as the 03 sneakers.

To get your money back on StockX, after a standard US tax rate and service fee. You’ll need to sell the Nike Air Jordan 1 High Zoom Space Hippie for at least $210. Thus by using my estimated resell value, expect net profits of around $70.

Selling on eBay is also a good option as fees for sales over $100 are eliminated. Thus profits can be over $100 per pair.

Where to Buy

You can buy the Air Jordan 1 Retro High Zoom Space Hippie from select retailers and Nike.com on the 12th of September.

You can buy it today as well from re-seller websites such as GOAT, StockX and eBay.
