Before we get into details for the Off-White Air Jordan 5 Sail Fire Red. Let me walk you through some background information.
Skip to the conclusion for summarized information all in one place.
Air Jordan 5 | Background
The Air Jordan 5 was a product of Tinker Hatfield’s genius and wild imagination. Hatfield took inspiration from places you’d least expect, such as a WW2 Fighter Jet. To be more specific, the AJV was inspired by the WWII Marine Spitfire. Hence the flames on the sides.
Another source of inspiration came from the movie “Back to the Future”. Marty Mcfly’s translucent soled shoes inspired the Air Jordan 5. Making it the first Jordan sneaker to feature a translucent foam upper.
They also featured 3M reflective panels along with an Air Jordan logo on it. Overall, the sneakers looked pretty cool and garnered decent attention. Although many new Jordan sneakers demanded the same respect, the Air Jordan 5 today is one of the most sought after.
In 1990, only a hundred Vs were manufactured, each with a price tag of $125. They were later re-released for a price tag of $120 and were still extremely limited.
Due to the scarcity of the sneakers, resale for them is incredibly high. You’ll still today find some collaborations and colorways of the V such as the Air Jordan 5 Fire Red, that even after 20 years, are selling really well.
OFF-WHITE & Air Jordan| The Dynamic Duo
OFF-WHITE, under Virgil Abloh, has become a street-wear and even cultural icon. He founded the Milan-based company in 2013 and ever since then, his popularity among the elite and high-end street fashion enthusiasts is unrivaled for many.
Various collaborations with brands such as Levi’s and Nike have propelled OFF-WHITE into a household name. The Jordan collaboration, however, has made the company’s products one of the most sought after in street-wear fashion history.
The Off-White Air Jordan 5 Sail Fire Red is the latest out of a long line of Jordan x OFF-WHITE sneakers. Due to both companies’ prestige and the limited amount of sneakers released. Off-White Air Jordan sneakers’ resale prices are extremely high and highly profitable.
To estimate resale for the Air Jordan 5 Retro Off-White Sail fire red, let’s head over to StockX. Assessing similar sneakers may give us a good idea of what to expect.
Air Jordan 1 Retro OFF-WHITE White
Retail Price: $190
Peak Resell: $5,600
Release Date: 03/03/2018
The Air Jordan 1 High Off White (White) features a white leather upper with OFF-WHITE fashioned blue and orange stitching.
Sail overlay on the sides and heel along with a sail mid-sole provide some contrast. “AIR” printed on the mid-sole can also be seen while a white out-sole finishes off the design.
On StockX, the average selling price is a whopping $3,100 per pair. That means on average, resellers are making an average gross profit of over $2,900 per pair! At peak resale, profits are at an insane $3,700.
Although the Off-White Air Jordan 5 Sail Fire Red won’t have profits as high. I believe they’ll still be extremely profitable.
Off-White Air Jordan 4 Sail (W)
Retail Price: $200
Peak Resell: $3,500
Release Date: 07/25/2020
The Off White Air Jordan 4 Sail came in women’s exclusive sizing and is extremely sought after. The upper features a sail color tone constructed with full-grain leather. On the toe region and rear side of the sneaker, there’s mesh and other translucent materials.
The only real contrast is provided by the “AIR” printed on the mid-sole and the light blue jump-man on the tongue. The Air Jordan 4 Off White Sail was perhaps the most anticipated release of 2020.
On StockX, the average selling price is a staggering $1,150 per pair. At peak resale, gross profits are as high as $3,300!
Off-White Air Jordan 5 Metallic Silver
Retail Price: $225
Peak Resell: $2,200
Release Date: 02/15/2020
Colorway: Black/Muslin-Fire Red
Through the Off-White Air Jordan 5 Black, Virgil Abloh pays homage to his first-ever pair of Jordans. The Air Jordan 5 Black Metallic.
While much of it stays true to the original, this Air Jordan V is constructed with a black textile mesh upper and netted side panels. A grey be-speckled flaming design on the mid-sole provides contrast along with the fire red Jordan branding.
An exposed Air unit on the mid-sole and a yellowed out-sole finishes off the design.
On StockX, the average selling price is a respectable $800 ($575 Gross profit). At peak resale prices, gross profits are over $1,900 per pair.
I believe the Off-White Air Jordan 5 Sail Fire Red will have very similar resale value.
Off-White Air Jordan 5 Sail Fire Red
Retail Price: $220
Estimated Resell: $750
Release Date: October/29/2020 (EU) TBC
Colorway: Sail/Fire Red-Muslin-Black
Virgil Abloh’s take on the 5th Air Jordan’s second-ever colorway is inspired by the OG “Fire Red” colorway. However, it adds in a further deconstructed and worn-in look, perhaps a nod at Abloh’s own personal pairs.
The Off-White Air Jordan 5 Sail Fire Red features a thinner collar which is a result of thinned out padding. The entire upper half is constructed with a TPE-like material that hints at the Air Jordan 5’s past.
A fire-red “23” appears behind the netted side panels which rest under the circular window on the sides. The tongues, on the other hand, features reflective silver with a fire red Jump-Man for some contrast.
This Air Jordan also features a fire red design similar to the OG “Fire Red” colorway. Except these include yellowed out eye stays and out-soles for an aged look.
Take a closer look through these detailed images.
As with any other Off-White and Air Jordan collaboration, I believe these will sell out extremely fast. As a result, profits are also expected to be very high.
If you decide to sell on StockX, to get your money back you’ll need to sell for at least $260. Using my estimated resell value of $750, you can expect average profits of around $490 a pair!
Those are extremely high profits especially if you can cop multiple pairs. Although copping one will be extremely difficult, once again our Winner’s Circle can vastly improve your chances!
