2019 has had no shortage of two things: hyped Air Jordan 1s and Women’s shoes that guys wanted.
A rare drop is on the horizon that’s a combo of the aforementioned two, meaning that this one will have resale value.
It’s the Air Jordan 1 Mid “Melody Ehsani”, named after the designer herself.
Let’s dig into the hype on this one and see how you can get your hands on (feet in*) this one, and if it’s for the flip, how much profit you can pocket.
Release Details: Air Jordan 1 Mid Fearless “melody Ehsani”
Retail Price: $130
Release date: Friday, November 15th 2019
Colorway: White/Black/Half Blue/Habanero Red
Detailed Look: AJ1 “melody Ehsani”
It’s always good to understand the figure behind the hype, not just to be a more educated sneaker entrepreneur but to pay some respect to the artist.
Melody Ehsani is a Persian-American designer out of Los Angeles.
Ehsani can be credited almost single-handedly to bringing women to Fairfax in LA, which is a historically male dominated fashion world.
She rocks her fits well, as seen in the pic above.
Her website — which is about to get a flood of new visitors who want their hands on this work of art– is known for its uniquely edgy merch for the real and unapologetically bad bitches in the room.
If there’s anyone to bring to this conversation, it would be Aleali May, who also had her very own hyped Air Jordan 1 which we’ll dig into later.
In the video above, the two greats talk fashion business, and Ehsani alludes to future Jordan collabs.
The future is now though as we’re finally set to see a Melody Ehsani Jordan in real life.
This shoe, a true work of art, is iconic in so many ways.
A literal time piece is the lacelock/dubrae, with the artist’s initials ME also able to be interpreted as, well, “me”, the wearer, and how valuable your time is.
On the heel, an inscription reads:
“If you knew what you had was rare, you would never waste it.”
This is a quote from the author Julie Burns Walker, who wrote the legendary “The Little Book of the Soul’s Big Journey”.
Encapsulating such powerful words on an eye catching work of art in a way that pop culture resonates with is a hard thing to pull off, but it looks like Ehsani has done it.
The pictures speak louder than words I can write.
These are impossible to ignore, and it’s no wonder that people are willing to pay high aftermarket prices for them.
The recipe is all lined up with this one and it’s no wonder that six figure resellers are adding this to their must buy list.
Resale prices for this “ME” Jordan 1 are sky high at the moment, nearing Off-White territory, with current profit numbers allowing for $500-$1000 pocketed per pair depending on size.
The last pair we can compare these to are the Jordan 1 x Aleali May Shadow, which now sells for a solid (up to $2000+ per pair) profit over its $120 retail price as seen above.
Like the “ME1”, Aleali’s was her first of her now four Jordan collaborations.
These are set to go down in history, and although we don’t have a crystal ball, it’s shoes like these that make the sneaker investment world so lucrative.
Sitelist for Air Jordan 1 Mid SE Melody Ehsani
If you’ve read this far, it would be hard not to want to buy these either to keep or to flip.
The reason that these are so hyped and that there is money to be made with these shoes is that the stock is limited, and there aren’t many places to buy them.
You can buy these shoes from these two sites:
- Official Nike.com /SNKRS App
- Melody’s site (direct link here)
Full site list is subject to change.
