Black and yellow Air Jordan 1’s are few and far between (shout out to the Steelers, Wiz Khalifa and the Wu Tang Clan), so November 2018’s Not for Resale Air Jordan 1, which released in red as well as a yellow colorway, generated tons of hype and went for around $5000 in value on the hyped shoe aftermarket at one point.

With a retail price of just $160, it was almost a given that sneakerheads would do the opposite of what the shoe name said–who could blame those that flipped with numbers like that? Learn to resell sneakers in our private, limited stock Winner’s Circle here.

Of course, everyone appreciates detailed pictures before they have shoes in hand, and the Pollen is no exception. With a unique dark yellow tone set on a black background and black Air Jordan logo on top of a white and Pollen sole, there’s no wonder why these shoes are generating so much hype.
