Let’s get started!
Air Max Day
Air max day is just around the corner and you know what that means guys. Brand new exciting releases! But even more exciting than new sneakers are the profits we can earn from them.
On 26th March 1987, Tinker Hatfield revolutionized the sneaker world with the Nike Air Max 1. It was an incredible step forward in sneaker technology with a visible air bag and an iconic new design.
You will always find this in any major sneaker-heads shoe collection due to its history and value.
27 years later in 2014, Nike decided to pay homage to the original by re-releasing the Air-Max 1. With slight color tweaks to the mid-sole and 3.26 written in red on the tongue.
The event itself is a 24-hour dedication from Nike, celebrating the Air-Max 1 through various events and releases. Eventually it was clear, the event wasn’t just forced by the brand but celebrated by the whole community.
This Air-Max day sees the release of the Air-Max Duck Camo pack, metallic pack and the day colors.
Now coming to the business part of this article. Let’s look at a few Air-Max 90 releases and see how they did on the resale market.
Nike Air Max Bamboo Safari
Retail Price: $120
Peak Resell: $205
Release Date: 11/26/2014
COLORWAY: Bamboo-Black-Medium Ash
This Air-Max 90 is not a collaboration with Atmos. However, it may give us an idea of how recent Air-Max 90 colorways do on the resale market.
According to StockX , the trade range is between $76-$142 and the average price is $138. That’s an average profit of $18 and peak profit of $85.
Recently however, re-sellers are selling for losses. As the market is also quite volatile you just never know what to expect with these. Over all, it’s not doing too well.
Nike Air Max 90 Atmos Duck Hunter Camo
Retail Price: $170
Peak Resell: $1,675
Release Date: 10/05/2013
When they were released, getting your hands on them was quite difficult. Initially they were released only in Japan and apart from being limited, that drove its resale value up.
It was well received due to its premium quality and unique design. On the resale market, it was received even better.
The trade range is between $385-$975 with the average price being over $800. That’s a peak potential profit of $1,505 per pair!
That’s pretty good, and a good indication for the “Reverse Duck camo” to have good resale value as well.
Moving on to the Air-Max 290.
Since this is an entirely new silhouette, I’ll take similar models as examples that likely inspired the 290.
Air Max 90 Infrared (2015)
Retail Price: $120
Peak Resell: $417
Release Date: 05/28/2015
After quite a few renditions, this still did well on the resale market. The trade range is between $317-$372 and the average price is $250.
Also keep in mind that the value keeps a steady rise. The pattern may continue for the Reverse Duck Camo pack.
Nike Air Max 90 Black Croc Infrared
Retail Price $130
Peak Resell: $285
Release Date: 05/21/2015
A very similar colorway to the Air-Max Infrared 290, we can gather a good estimation through this.
The trade range is between $214-$281 with the average price being $141. Now that’s not great but it’s decent if you cop enough pairs. You may have scored a potential $155 in pure profits per pair.
Nike Air Max Reverse Duck Camo Pack
Retail Price: (Air Max 290) $160
(Air Max 90) $140
Peak Resell: (Air Max 290) N/A
(Air Max 90) $490
Release Date: 03/26/2020
For the air max, day both pairs will be releasing with price tags of $140 for the 90 and $150 for the 290. The colorway for both is reminiscent of the Duck Hunter Camo.
The color is inverted for the Air-Max 90 while the print peaks out of the translucent layered upper for the 290.
There’s only a few minor differences with the Air-Max 90 such as the color tone tweaks. The toe box is a more brightly colored orange. As is the top line and the “Nike Air” located on the heel.
What also suits the reverse camo theme is the white mid-sole and the black around the air bubble. The hunting pattern hues also appear to be lighter than the original.
As for the Air-Max 290, it obviously takes on a more futuristic design. More-over, a reptilian pattern embellishes the lateral sides of the shoe over the swooshes.
One of my favorite parts are the high-tech looking heel with the red glossy appearance. There’s also a track shaped tongue which is quite unique.
Overall, the sneaker looks like something Elon Musk came up with and I am digging it.
Well guys it all comes down to this, the resale value. The Air-Max 90 reverse duck seems promising as mentioned above, it’s original variant did well.
Those who missed out on it may be looking to cop a pair so I’ll give this one a “Buy” in my books.
As you can see the pair can already earn you a decent profit of $351.
As for the Air-Max Reverse Duck 290, the silhouette looks solid and so does the colorway. I would also give this a buy as the futuristic design may appeal to many.
How to Cop
These will be available on the 26th of March on the SNKRS application and at select retailers. Atmos is known to make limited shoes so you better keep all notifications on.
Also, make sure to invest in a bot if you want to cop a few pairs successfully. They will cost you over $300 but they are essential in the shoe reselling business.
On Air-Max day, Nike is releasing the Reverse Duck Camo Pack that includes the altered Duck Hunt color for the Air-Max 90 and the brand New Air-Max 290.
The Air Max 290 retails for $160 while the Air Max 90 retails for $140.
For the Air-Max 90, go for sizes 8-9.5 as they are likely most profitable. The potential estimated profit for the Air Max 90 is $350 while the 290 may also earn decent profits. Stay tuned for updates.
