Let’s get right to it!

History

Although considered the least popular by some. The air Jordan 1 mid is a favorite to many due to is appearance and less performance focus.

After Jordan brand released the High, they came up with the Jordan 1 mid during the 2000’s.

Due to its less performance and more style focus, it wasn’t as popular among basketball players. This was because of the lower ankle collar, however, many  sneaker heads took a liking to it.

First Jordan 1 Mid

Retail Price: $110

Peak Resell: $710

Release Date: 11/23/2003

This was the first time an Air Jordan 1 received a patent leather finish, and it looked good! At the time, shiny\flashy was in fashion which just tells you how much into fashion Jordan brand was and still is.

This was a very important release as it showed Jordan brand wasn’t afraid to make changes. Such as adapting to fashion trends and diversifying.

According to StockX, the trade range today is between $439-$659 with the average price being $438. That’s an average profit of $328 and a peak profit of $600.

Now that’s not great for such as OG pair but it is good money for sure.

However, to get a better resale forecast of the Air Jordan 1 mid multi color women’s “Lightbulb”. Let’s look at more recent and similar colorways to make a more critical analysis.

Retail Price: $130

Peak Resell: $1,100

Release Date: 11/09/2019

COLORWAY: MUSLIN/ Red-Blue-Yellow-Green-White

Even at first glance it is easy to spot. The Jordan 1 mid multi color women’s Lightbulb is definitely inspired by these kicks. From the colorway to the energetic vibe of the fearless blue the great. It’s all very similar.

For this collaboration, Jordan brand took with the LA based artist Blue the Great to create this beauty. He is known for his love of the major primary colors, especially painting with them.

When Jordan brand came to him with the opportunity, he delivered! The pair features a sued multi colored upper with a chenille black swoosh.

It also has a sail mid-sole and a black out-sole and an air Jordan branding above the swoosh. Finally, there’s also the iconic signature of blue the great on the heel to finish off the design.

According to StockX the trade range is between $143-$175 with the average selling price being $167. That’s an average profit of $37 and a peak profit of $970.

Now that’s not too great as the average profit barely breaks even after the taxes you have to pay. Especially in the USA. However, there is some good news.

Although you may need quite a bit of pairs to resell, they may do better in time.

Part of the fearless pack, this also definitely inspired the Air Jordan 1 mid multi color women’s “Lightbulb”. This shoe came about when Jordan brand collaborated with melody Ehsani.

Melody Ehsani took this opportunity to express her message of female empowerment through these sneakers.

The pair features a multi colored leather upper. The right and left sneaker are both different colors which according to her inspires individuality.

It also has a translucent out-sole with a watch lace jewel and 3 sets of laces. Finally, there’s a highlighted message across the mid-sole to finish off the design.

According to StockX, these pairs have incredible resale value. The trade range is between $749-$1089 with the average being $533, The average profit alone is $403 per pair!

The peak resale value is massive $1,200. You would be one lucky sneaker-head to cop multiple pairs of these!

The Jordan 1 Fearless Melody Ehsani also increased in re-sale value over time.

Nike Air Jordan 1 Mid SE Lightbulb

Retail Price: $125

Peak Resell: $200

Release Date: 04/09/2020

COLORWAY: Lightbulb

Possibly inspired by the Melody Ehsani collaboration. This time Nike chose to go at it alone. With a similar crazy colorway, I expect these to sell out just by the looks of it.

Covered by a myriad of different colors such as green, pink, purple, blue, orange yellow and black. It sure is eye candy! The colors are used throughout the upper in a color block style.

Looks to be constructed with a leather mesh with a lot of sued, including the fuzzy kind! Also features semi-deconstructed model flaunts and a “Lightbulb” woven tongue.

Jump-man logo on the tongue and in-sole and wings on the collar. As for the rear, the bottom is also a yellow sued.

Finally, there’s a black standard out-sole with Nike branding to finish off the design.

Resale Value

Now for the important part! What will the resale be? Well that’s not so simple to predict any more due to the coronavirus outbreak. However due to the color I believe these will sell out fast.

If we look at the most similar colorway, these should do very well though not as well. Since Jordan 1 Fearless Melody Ehsani was a successful collaboration with a deep message behind it.

According to stockX the highest bid is already $200. However, I expect this to may be increase in a few months as happened with the Melody Ehsani Collab.

So the peak potential profit is already $75 so if you manage to cop various pairs, its good money. I’d also suggest going for larger sizes such as 10-12 as they likely will be most profitable.

How to Cop

You will likely find these in various websites such as the Nike official website and select retailers. You better be fast however, as I expect these to sell out quick.

You can also get them at re-seller websites such as StockX and GOAT.

Conclusion

The Air Jordan 1 mid multicolor women’s “Lightbulb” drops on 9th of April for $125. Its peak resale value is $200 so far with a $75 peak profit. Sizes 10-12 being likely most profitable.

Also make sure to hold them for a few months as I suspect re-sale value may rise as it did with the Melody Ehsani Collab.

You can find them on the official Nike website as well as select retailers. You may also find them on GOAT and StockX.
