The “nightmare on elm street” inspired Nike Air Max 95 Freddy Krueger is one of a kind. Before we estimate how much money it will make resellers, let me walk you through some history!

Nike Air Max 95| History

From Sneaker Bar Detroit

As I’ve said before, Nike Air Max sneakers are one of the most iconic in history. Transcending what they were intended for as performance sneakers and becoming a staple within the fashion realm. Let me briefly walk you through Nike Air Max’s story.

Tinker Hatfield was the mastermind behind the Nike Air Max. He was also responsible for sneakers such as the Air Jordan 1 and is considered a legend when it comes to sneaker designer.

He was merely a corporate architect for Nike. However, after being inspired by other Nike sneakers, he decided to design one of his own.

The Nike Air Max had an exposed Air unit which is one of the most ambitious design changes in any sneaker. He was told it was a bad idea but he followed his gut and created one of the most famous sneakers ever.

Then in 1995 came the Nike Air Max 95. They introduced two separate Air Units in the midsole and were the first to feature visible air in the forefoot. Various retro colorways have been introduced including exciting new ones.

The Freddy Krueger Air Max 95 is perhaps one of the most exciting colorways yet.

Nike| Halloween 2020

Sneakerjagers

A lot of sports-wear companies have gotten into the Halloween spirit this year. We’ve seen various Halloween themed releases that were profitable and also not so profitable.

A notable few Nike sneakers this year include the Air Max 90 Spider Web and the Nike Air Force 1 Orange Skeleton. If you’re interested, we’ve prepared a whole list of resalable Halloween sneakers of 2020.

Although the Air Force 1 Orange Skeleton was also highly anticipated. I believe the best Halloween sneaker award should go to the Nike Air Max 95 Freddy Krueger. To estimate its resale value, let’s head over to StockX.

Assessing similar sneakers may give us a good idea of what to expect.

Nike Air Max 97 Halloween (2020)

from StockX

Retail Price: $180

Peak Resell: $620

Release Date: 10/28/2020

Colorway: Black/Court Purple-Flash Crimson

This Halloween themed sneaker releases just in time in 2 days with a “slimy” design pattern. A black and purple upper is contrasted by a dull green pattern with spilling effects near the rear.

The midsole features a fully exposed air unit while a matching slime green outsole completes the design. A small crimson ‘Swoosh’ on the forefoot is also featured on each sneaker.

On StockX, the average selling price is $255 which is a gross profit of $75 per pair. At peak resale prices, gross profits are as high as $440. The Nike Air Max 95 Freddy Krueger edition will likely have much higher profits.

Nike Air Max 95 Halloween (2014)

From StockX

Retail Price: $170

Peak Resell: $420

Release Date: 10/30/2014

Colorway: Multi-Color

These sneakers released back in Halloween of 2014, feature relatively subtle colors. Although some might argue that this sneaker doesn’t fit the theme it was intended for. They’re pretty high in demand.

Featuring a multi-colored and multi-material upper. These sneakers give off a sort of deconstructed vibe.  A light grey midsole and green outsole finish off the design.

The average selling price on the reseller’s market is around $340 per pair. Meanwhile, at peak resale prices, gross profits are as high as $250 per pair. I expect the Nike Air Max 95, Freddy Krueger, to resell for even higher.

Nike SB Dunk Low Freddy Krueger

From StockX

Retail Price: N/A

Peak Resell: $15,000

Release Date: Discontinued

Although this sneaker was discontinued long ago, some sneakers actually made it into the hands of some. This may not be a good reference sneaker because of that fact, however, it’s still a very interesting shoe to talk about!

These kicks feature an upper that is textured and colored to match Freddy Krueger’s signature sweater. Suede overlay stained with what looks to be blood adds another gory detail to these sneakers. An off-white midsole and dark outsole completes the design.

On StockX, they’ve only been sold twice but both at whopping price tags of $10,000 and $15,000. Those are incredibly high potential profits. This may also be a hint that the Nike Air Max 95 Freddy Krueger will sell for very high resale prices.

Retail Price: $170

Release Date: October/30/2020

Colorway: VELVET BROWN/UNIVERSITY RED-TEAM RED

This Nike Air Max 95 comes dressed in a velvet brown, university red, and team red colorway. Constructed with a combination of mesh and canvas, these kicks are designed in a way to mimic Freddy Krueger’s signature sweater.

The sneakers also feature suede toe caps, checkered tongue, and metallic silver overlay speckled with red to represent Freddy’s favorite razor gloves. The insoles too nod at the character with bloody Swooshed insoles.

A yellowed outsole with exposed red air bubbles and a black outsole complete the design. Take a closer look with these official images.

Estimated Resell

These kicks will probably be the most profitable out of Nike’s entire Halloween 2020 line up. These sneakers will also definitely sell out.

Using my estimated resale value of $600, you’ll be able to make profits of around $430 in gross profits per pair! Selling on websites such as eBay will earn you even higher profits due to the service fee waivers.
