The OG Air Force 1 Low finally gets its own “Roswell Rayguns” makeover. Confused about what that is? Well, let me walk you through its history!

Nike Air Force 1 and Rosewell Rayguns

From Rink Rats

Bruce Kilgore was the mind behind the Air Force 1 for which he took inspiration from the Nike hiking boot.  Kilgore’s design was so high-tech at the time that it’s still used in Nike sneakers today.

After releasing it in 1984, Nike decided to discontinue the sneaker. The AJ1, however, was so popular, demand practically forced Nike to bring it back in 1986. Air Force 1 released in multiple colorways and even a high-top and has been the canvas of a few popular collaborations.

The Roswell Rayguns, on the other hand, is a fictional ABA team created by Nike for their basketball sneaker campaign in the 2000s.

The story is about a struggling team in 1975 until their mid-season when some beings from another planet come to visit. A character named “Dr.Funk” walks out with a team of All-Stars and they go on to dominate the sport.

From this story, came the Iconic Nike SB Dunk low Rayguns that were advertised as special “Time-Traveling shoes” in a Rayguns-themed colorway.

That colorway now returns for the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Raygun”. To estimate its resale value, let’s head over to StockX!

Nike SB Dunk Low Tie Dye Black

From StockX

Retail Price: $100

Peak Resell: $500

Release Date: 12/28/2019

Colorway: BLACK/BLACK-ORANGE FLASH

This Nike SB Dunk Low features a tie-dye color on the leather side panels and rear. Orange heel tabs blend right in while a black “Swoosh”, eye stays, and toe box makes the colors pop.

A black midsole and shell outsole finishes off the design.

The average selling price on StockX is around $260 which is a $160 average gross profit. However, since this is an SB Dunk, the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Raygun” will likely no be as profitable.

Retail Price: $110

Estimated Resell: $140

Release Date: January/15/2020

Colorway: WHITE/BLACK-ORANGE FLASH-AMARILLO

This Air Force 1 comes primarily in a white leather upper with vibrant contrasting overlays. Orange tongues match the flashy orange rear and on top of that are yellow heel tabs with Nike branding.

On the lateral ankles are the familiar alien basketball badges that take a nod at the ABA Roswell Rayguns basketball team. Black laces provide contrast along with perforated white toe boxes. Inside, “RAYGUNS” is printed on one insole while Nike branding covers the other.

A white midsole and black outsole finish off the look.

Estimated Resell Value

I believe these sneakers just might sell out, however, I don’t expect any high profits. Air Force 1 Lows tend to sit around close to retail prices recently.

Using my estimated resell value, expect gross profits of around $30 per pair.
