Air Jordan 4 | Resale In 2021

Released in 1989, the Air Jordan 4 had a large amount of hype behind it as the successor to the immensely popular Air Jordan III. The difficult task of making yet another hit Air Jordan to emulate the 3 was once again assigned Tinker Hatfield, and he accomplished it with flying colors.

The story of the 4’s popularity throughout its age is of ups and downs. While they were popular for the most part, resale value for these sneakers greatly fluctuates according to the colorway and how limited they are.

The Air Jordan 4 Fire Red, for example, has been done up various times thus isn’t super profitable. On the other hand, colorways such as the Air Jordan 4 White Oreo and Taupe Haze can yield decent profits for resellers.

The Air Jordan 4 Lightning, however, is a highly anticipated colorway that will likely yield just as high returns. To estimate its resale more accurately, let’s head over to the comparison.

Air Jordan 4 University Blue

  • Retail Price: $220
  • Average Resell: $360
  • Release Date: 04/28/2021
  • Colorway: University Blue/Tech Grey

Inspired by the University Of North Carolina, Michael Jordan’s alma mater, the Air Jordan 4 University Blue was released in various sizing this April and was immensely hyped.

A University Blue suede and leather construction is contrasted by speckled Tech Grey heel tabs, triangular pieces, and midsoles. Black/grey outsoles finish off the design.

On the secondary markets, these kicks are selling for gross profits of around $140 each! That’s a very decent return and the Air Jordan 4 Lightning will likely have a similar resale value.

Originally released in 2006 in extremely limited quantities, this Air Jordan 4 was inspired by the seasonal strip of MJ’s favorite motorcycle racing team with matching vibrant yellow uppers.

Almost the entire shoe dons this luminous yellow tone in a full leather construction, largely staying true to the originals. Black hits pepper the sneakers, appearing on the side windows, triangular units, and the plastic eyelet panels.

Tongues feature white Jump-Man logos while heel tabs wear black Jump-Man badges embossed under the sneaker’s yellow heel pulls.

White/black midsoles and matching outsoles with a yellow Jump-Man completes the design.
