The Air Jordan 2 is growing when it comes to popularity but how profitable is it to resell? We’ll find that out later on but first, let me walk you over a bit of history behind Maison Chateau Rogue.

Maison Chateau Rogue: Coexistence in Style

Youssouf Fofana founded Maison Château Rouge with his brother in 2015. Youssouf and Mamadou set out to revamp Paris’ most famous African neighborhood with their unique “Château Rouge” tees.

The Fofana brothers pay respect to Château Rouge, a symbol of ethnic mix and tolerance, with a design that is both urban and minimalist.

Things have picked up speed since then. Everyone wants a piece of the brand because it is more well-known.

Who’s Next invited them to display their designs at the “Paris” exhibition as a representative of the new Parisian aesthetic, and Le Bon Marché invited them to exhibit their creations at the “Paris” exhibition as a representation of the new Parisian aesthetic.

However, that was just the tip of the iceberg as the Brand has scored huge collaborations with the likes of Jordan Brand, the latest of their products being the upcoming Maison Chateau Rouge Air Jordan 2.

It would seem that being genuine to yourself and staying true to your culture does appeal instead of repelling those that are otherwise alien to it.

The Air Jordan 2, for the most part, was not the most profitable sneaker on the market. Not even close, in fact.

The Air Jordan 2 was actually quite an elusive sneaker prior to 2021. Jordan Brand mostly focused on the Air Jordan 11, 1, 4, 5, and 6 while the 2 was left in the vault collecting dust.

After 2021, however, and a number of collaborations, it appears that the Jordan 2 is on its way to reaching the top echelon of hyped sneakers.

Although regular colorways like the Air Jordan 2 Multi-Color resell for just around retail prices, more iconic colors like the White Red resell for over $400 per pair. Collaborations are also quite popular, let’s check out a few similar colorways to estimate resale for the Maison Chateau Rouge Air Jordan 2!

To estimate its resale, let’s head on over to the secondary market to check out a few similar pairs.

Jordan Brand collaborated with Maison Chateau Rouge, a Parisian fashion label, to create the Jordan 1 Mid SE Maison Château Roug as part of the Fearless Pack.

Maison Château Rouge, which takes its name from the multicultural Château-Rouge area of Paris, is inspired by African ancestry and the mixing of cultures. This depth and diversity are reflected in the AJ 1 Mid’s blend of colors and textured patterns.

Uppers feature a mix of colors and patterns with pastel blue and yellow hues along with baroque brown hits on the sides and the Swooshes. Sail midsoles and vibrant yellow outsoles finish off the design.

On the secondary market, these kicks are worth north of $600 which is an incredible margin. Although the other collaborations aren’t that profitable, it does show how profitable sneakers from this partnership can be.

The A Ma Maniere Air Jordan 2 has a Sail/burgundy leather upper with traces of snakeskin designs, similar to the previous partnership on the Air Jordan 1.

On the toes, side panels, collars, and eye stay, a cracking leather Sail material is used.

The sides are perforated, with black eyelet panels and laces for contrast.

The aesthetic is completed with black Jordan Wings designs on the tongues, black snakeskin midsoles, and matching outsoles. Special packaging is also included with these sneakers!

On websites such as StockX, these sneakers are worth $350, just as we expected. That is over $100 in gross profits.

Side perforations have an orange background, and the sail tongue tags have bright orange Jump-Man emblems. The design is completed with sail midsoles and outsoles.

Orange leather covers the toes while matching laces with red hits blend right in on top of the throats. Sail midsoles and matching outsoles finish off the design.
