After an action-packed May, June is a slightly slower month, but still filled with plenty of opportunities to make money.
In addition to FOG, some classic Jordans, and a dash of Off-White, be ready for a Yeezy season: our whole list of the v2’s dropping in June is an entirely separate article this month.
Here are the most profitable shoes to release this month of June 2019:
1. Nike x Fear of God 1 ‘Frosted Spruce’ and ‘Orange Pulse’ – Saturday June 1st 2019
Peak Resell: $650
Potential Profit: $300
The first release of the month is certainly one of the best. Nike’s successful collaboration with Jerry Lorenzo’s brand Fear of God continues, and this time they are collaborating to release their most popular silhouette in two new summer inspired colours.
Make sure to sign up for any local raffles, as these are certain to be limited. Your best chance of copping these is either via an in-store raffle or on Nike’s SNKRS App at 10AM EST. As demand will be high and stock will obviously be low, both colourways will resell for plenty over resell. However, if you can’t cop these don’t worry, as there will be plenty of other profitable releases this month.
2. Nike x Undercover Daybreak – Tuesday June 7th 2019
Peak Resell: $350
Potential Profit: $190
The second release of the month is another strong Nike collaboration. Undercover have collaborated with Nike in the past to create new colourways for shoes such as the React Element 87. These releases always seem to perform well in the resell market, and this release is sure to be the same. This ‘Daybreak’ model will be released in three different colourways; Black, Blue Jay and Bright Citron.
In my opinion, ‘Bright Citron’ will perform the best. There will be plenty of retailers stocking these shoes, so make sure to grab a pair for a nice, easy flip.
3. Nike x Fear of God 1 ‘Sail’ – Saturday, June 8th 2019
Peak Resell: $650
Potential Profit: $300
Fear of God have turned June into their month, and this will be their third release of the highly coveted ‘Fear of God 1’ silhouette. This clean, white and black colourway will definitely be one of the most popular colourways of this shoe, and I expect stock to extremely limited. Make sure to have instagram and email notifications on for Fea of God, as they will be releasing them on their site at some point on the 8th.
4. Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Black Non-Reflective and Reflective –Saturday, June 8th 2019
Peak Resell: $450/$850 (non-reflective/reflective)
Potential Profit: $230/$630
Probably one of the most anticipated Yeezys ever: a v2 version of the original ‘Pirate Black’ Yeezy v1. Although stock will be extremely high on the non-reflectives, the demand will still heavily outweigh the supply, as nearly every single sneakerhead will want these beautiful shoes.
The reflective will be very limited, and over time expect both pairs to rise, just like the ‘Static’ and ‘Static Reflective’ colourways from late 2018. Members of the Private Cook Group will be receiving free carts and slots for both releases, to ensure that they cop this release. Your best chance of copping will be on YeezySupply and Adidas.
5. Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 v2 Tephra – 14th June 2019
Peak Resell: $500
Potential Profit: $200
Kanye promised ‘Yeezys for All’ in 2019, and it seems like he is fulfilling that promise. There are around 20 different Yeezy releases scheduled for this year, so most people should get their hands on a pair or two. This earth-toned 700 v2 seems to be performing well early on in the resell market, and as always, sizes 4-6.5 will go for the most for these. Make sure not to sleep on these as they seem quite limited.
Update: There was a shock drop on the morning of June 11th 2019 on Yeezysupply.
6. Jordan Retro 7 Parra “Shimmer” – Saturday, June 15th 2019
Peak Resell: $300
Potential Profit: $100
Amsterdam based brand Patta has been known for its enviable and pricey collabs with Nike, including multiple Air Max x Patta collabs that go for resale in the $2,000+ range.
The “Shimmer”/Mahogany Mink/Velvet Brown/Tough Red colorway dropped exclusively in Amsterdam last month in May in limited quantities.
Those in the US and worldwide will now have a second chance at these works of art via the SNKRS app and select Nike Jordan retailers on a re release date of Saturday, June 15th 2019.
7. Jordan 14 Retro Ferrari University Gold – Saturday, June 22nd 2019
Peak Resell: $375
Potential Profit: $175
This shoe is certain to be a hit for sneakerheads who also enjoy F1. Nike are finally creating a new Jordan 14 x Ferrari colourway, after the bright red colourway was released 5 years ago. Even though the Jordan 14 isn’t the most popular Jordan silhouette, this collab will definitely have some hype, and it won’t sit on shelves for long.
8. Off-White x Nike Zoom Terra Kiger 5 Release Date: Thursday, June 27th, 2019
Peak Resell: $600
Potential Profit: $420
One of the more interesting of the Off-White collection, these Terra Kigers look track ready but that doesn’t mean people won’t want to rock these on the street to flex.
You’ll have three colorways and thus three chances to cop: they’ll be dropping in White/Metallic Silver/Sail/Safety Orange, Electric Green/Metallic Silver-Sail, Black/Metallic Silver/White/Pink Blast, the last of which seems to be the most desirable and is going for around $1000 on StockX right now in early June, although the price is expected to drop as the release date comes closer.
Although this month isn’t as profitable as May, it is clear that there is still a lot of money to be made from these releases. My recommendation is to try cop as many of the Yeezy 350v2 black as possible, as I feel they are the safest and easiest investment.
If you got one of each pair on this list, it would cost you roughly $1600. However, if you sold them all at peak resell value, you would receive around $3500, which means you would get around $1900 in pure profit! Owners of the new, updated for 2019 Hypemaster’s Playbook, and members of the Private Discord Cook group will certainly be cooking this month, and will certainly make hundreds in profit from this month or during some of the good weekends!
