Officially announced by Nike News, the most versatile Air Jordan silhouette the AJ 1 is coming in another retro rendition this June. In the United States, on the 26th of June, Nike is releasing the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Tie Dye” for a retail price of $170. In the EU, the sneaker is releasing on the 11th of June. 

Initially set to release on the 11th of June, Nike has pushed back the release of a highly anticipated women’s only pair – the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Tie Dye”. This doesn’t come as a surprise to many of us; as due to COVID-19 the entire supply chain of apparel brands has been densely affected.

Throughout this year, we have seen several renditions of the Air Jordan 1 demonstrating it as the most versatile Air Jordan silhouette and this time around we’re seeing a tie-dye upper which has got us all riled up.

Let’s take a closer look at the silhouette and how the market is responding to it.

Feel free to skip to the end to read a summarized version of the article and find out how much you can resell the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Tie Dye” for.

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Tie Dye”

This women’s exclusive Air Jordan sneaker has got our hearts pumping ever since it was first officially announced by Nike News. It’s not often that the Jordan brand shows love to the women but this time the brand has hit it out of the park.

On the classic AJ 1 silhouette, we see an ocean blue tie-dye upper with a white leather base. Contrasting with the blue tie-dye and white leather, the sneaker features a contrasting black color on its toe box, collar, and laces.

The classic Nike swoosh is featured in black on the laterals just above the white midsole and black outer sole. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Tie Dye” really stands out in direct sunlight where its tie-dye upper gets to speak for the sneaker.

Where to Buy

As the release date has been pushed back to the 26th of June, you now have plenty of time to be able to cop these shoes.

The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Tie Dye” will be coming in three different sizes:

  • Women’s Exclusive for $170
  • Pre-School for $80
  • Toddler for $ 60

The Resale Price

Usually the Women’s exclusive drop do not fare well in the market but this one is defying all odds. It’s been so hyped up and rightly so! The tie dye print is one of a kind and we’re loving it. With a low retail price of $170, everyone wants to get a hand on this Air Jordan 1.

Taking a look at the Sales data for this sneaker (from StockX) we see that the sneaker is reselling for more than 200%. The peak resale value (till date) even reached $580 just a week ago – and although this is more than what you can expect to cash in – it’s still an indicator of the popularity of the pair.

The resale value of the sneaker has been fluctuating in the higher $400s and we expect it to become stagnant around $350 – $400.

Once you open up the Bids section, you can see the anticipation behind the release. Buyers are willing to pay such a high premium in order to get their hands on this Air Jordan 1. Some of the Ask prices are even in the $1000 mark – albeit that’s wishful thinking.

The most in-demand sizes seem to be 10 – 11 as these have the highest number of bids and the highest prices at the same time.

Taking all of this into context and evaluation, we estimate that the resale value of the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Tie Dye” will be in the range of $350-$400.
