Like the forthcoming Easter 2022 colorway, this Nike Dunk Low boasts light blue and salmon colors.

With a blend of suede and mesh, these shoes have a laid-back vibe. The white mesh appears on the perforated toe boxes, side panels, and collar underlays, while pale sky-blue suede wraps the toes, eye stays, and heel overlays.

The suede side Swooshes, laces, and heel tabs with “Nike” branding are all covered in a rusty pink tinge called “Fossil Rose.”

The design is completed with white midsoles and brown runner outsoles.

I believe these sneakers will be profitable in the larger sizes and I would expect gross profits of around $50 per pair.

Nike Dunk High Prime Pink

  • Retail Price: $115
  • Estimated Resell: $150

  • Colorway: Prime Pink/White
  • Style Code: DD1869-110
Nike Dunk High Prime Pink Quarter View May 2022 Best Sneakers To Resell
Nike Dunk High Prime Pink Quarter View

The Nike Dunk High Prime Pink has a classic “Dunk” color palette, with one hue on the overlays and another on the underlays.

The overlays on the toes, eye stays, Swooshes, and heel overlays, as well as the laces, are all covered in a vivid “Prime Pink.” The perforated toe boxes are made of pure white leather, which matches the throats, that are tied with classic white laces.

White tongues with extra “Prime Pink” branding and sock liners lead up from the throats. The design is completed with white midsoles and pink outsoles.

I believe these sneakers will also yield small profits of around $30-$50 per pair.

Nike Dunk Low Championship Court Purple

  • Retail Price: $100
  • Estimated Resell: $170
  • Release Date: Thursday, May 5th, 2022
  • Colorway: White/Court Purple
  • Style Code: DD1391-104

The white underlays and Court purple overlays on this Nike Dunk Low are a very traditional style. The ventilated toe boxes, side panels, and heel underlays are all covered in white leather.

The purple overlay appears on the toes, eye stays, heel overlays, and Swooshes in the meanwhile. Interiors use the same color palette as the exteriors, with extra branding, while the backs are embroidered with a “Nike” logo.

The design is completed with clean white midsoles and matching Court Purple outsoles. Since this is a pretty popular colorway, I expect slightly higher returns at around $70 per pair in gross profits.

Nike Dunk Low Next Nature Panda (Restock)

  • Retail Price: $105
  • Estimated Resell: $190
  • Release Date (Restock): Thursday, May 5th, 2022
  • Colorway: White/Black
  • Style Code: DD1873-102
Nike Dunk Low Next Nature Black White Quarter View

The regular Nike Dunk Low Panda is a highly popular colorway and its more sustainable counterpart, the Next Nature Panda is also not far behind when it comes to resale and popularity.

These sneakers feature a black-white color scheme with white leather appearing on the side panels, perforated toe boxes, and the collar’s underlays. Meanwhile, black leather appears on the Swooshes, heel overlays, toes, and the eye stays.

White tongues with black branding, white midsoles, and black outsoles complete the exteriors. Meanwhile, interiors feature green inserts with special Move To Zero branding.

After the restock, I believe the resale value of these sneakers will be around $190, yielding over $80 in gross profits per pair.

Adidas Yeezy 450 Sulfur

  • Retail Price: $200
  • Estimated Resell: $250
  • Release Date: Saturday, May 7th, 2022
  • Colorway: Sulfur
  • Style Code: HP5426
Adidas Yeezy 450 Sulfur Side View

The Adidas Yeezy 450 Sulfur features a colorway that we’ve seen before on Yeezy silhouettes.

This 450 features a knitted pastel yellow upper with a TPU caging that creeps up the knitted material starting from the outsole in a similar hue.

Light traditional laces and matching knitted extended sock collars finishes off the design. On the secondary market, these kicks are worth around $320 and I believe, come the release date, they’ll cost around $250.

Air Jordan 9 Chile Red

  • Retail Price: $190
  • Estimated Resell: $270
  • Release Date: Saturday, May 7th, 2022
  • Colorway: CHILE RED/BLACK
  • Style Code: CT8019-600
Air Jordan 9 Chile Red Quarter View

The Air Jordan 9 Chile Red has been delayed quite a few times but hopefully, is finally set to release on May 7th.

With side holes and what appear to be mesh toe boxes, a quilted stitched Chile Red upper creates a stunning design.

Red throats lead to tongues with black tags bearing the “Jordan” insignia. International Jump-Man insignia adorns the heel tabs, indicating the brand’s global appeal.

The style is completed with patent leather mudguards, red midsoles with red Jump-Man emblems, and outsoles with multiple language lettering.

Judging by the number on StockX, I believe these will be profitable and resell for around $270 per pair.

Week 2


Nike Dunk Low PRM Cider

  • Retail Price: $110
  • Estimated Resell: $170
  • Release Date: Tuesday, May 10th, 2022
  • Colorway: Off Noir/Cider/Dark Chocolate/Wild Berry
  • Style Code: DH0601-001
Nike Dunk Low PRM Cider Quarter View
Nike Dunk Low PRM Cider Quarter View

The Nike Dunks just keep on coming and include this new Nike Dunk Low PRM Cider.

Despite being introduced in the summer, these sneakers have a fall-ready color scheme, with orange-ish highlights suggestive of Jack-o-Lanterns, according to sources.

Luxurious suede and leather combine in the construction of these Dunks. On the perforated toe boxes and heel overlays, the former is in the titular cider hues.

Cider hits also show on the “Berry”-colored Nike Swooshes on the lateral leather Swooshes, throats, and tongues. Brown leather wraps the toes and eye stays, while dark brownish sock liners accent the laces.

The design is completed with navy suede side panels and collar underlays, black midsoles, and brown outsoles.

On the secondary market, I believe these sneakers will be worth around $170 per pair.

Nike Dunk Low Next Nature Sequoia

  • Retail Price: $110
  • Estimated Resell: $140
  • Release Date: Tuesday, May 10th, 2022
  • Colorway: Sequoia/Orange/Medium Olive/Sail
  • Style Code: DD3358-300
Nike Dunk Low Next Nature Sequoia Quarter View

This Nike Dunk Low features a quilted style similar to Nike’s new ‘Toasty’ collection.

The shoe’s whole color palette is Medium Olive with orange accents. The former has a deeper color on the toes, eye stays, and heel overlays and the latter has a lighter shade and appears on the side panels and toe boxes.

Tongues are also Medium olive, with white tags and Nike’s “Move To Zero” logo on the midsoles. “Nike” stitching sits atop the brilliant orange side Swooshes, which match the heel tabs.

Meanwhile, the style is completed with white midsoles and specked rubber outsoles. These may not be very profitable and I expect around $30 in gross profits.

Air Jordan 6 Retro Midnight Navy (2022)

  • Retail Price: $190
  • Estimated Resell: $270
  • Release Date: Wednesday, May 11th, 2022
  • Colorway: White/Midnight Navy
  • Style Code: CT8529-141
Air Jordan 6 Retro Midnight Navy Quarter View

The color blocking on this Air Jordan 6 is quite similar to what was initially known as the Air Jordan 6 Sport Blue.

The Air Jordan 6 is covered in crisp neutral white leather with leather strips that cover the perforated side underlays. The lace toggles and tongues with the “Jordan” logo offer comparable perforation for ventilation, while the namesake blue colors show on the lace toggles and tongues.

Midnight Navy heel pulls mirror the embroidered “Jump-Man” insignia on the sides, while blue/white midsoles and semi-translucent outsoles round off the design.

I believe these will resell for around $270, yielding decent gross profits of around $80.

Nike Dunk Low Team Red

  • Retail Price: $100
  • Estimated Resell: $180
  • Release Date: Thursday, May 12th, 2022
  • Colorway: White/Team Red
  • Style Code: DD1391-601
Nike Dunk Low Team Red May 2022 Best Sneakers To Resell

Inspired by the originals that were released back in 1985, this Nike Dunk Low features a white and dark red color combination.

Uppers feature red overlays and white overlays with titular Nike branding on the tongues. White midsoles and red outsoles complete the look.

You can expect some margins from reselling these shoes. Possibly around $80 in gross profits.

A Ma Manière x Air Jordan 2 Sail Burgundy

  • Retail Price: $225
  • Estimated Resell: $350
  • Release Date: Friday, May 13th, 2022
  • Colorway: Sail/Black-Burgundy Crush

A Ma Maniere Air Jordan 2 Quarter View

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

On the toes, side panels, collars, and eye stay, a cracked 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 complementing outsoles. Special packaging is also included with these sneakers!

A Ma Manière collaborative sneakers are highly popular and profitable. As such, you’ll likely want to keep your eyes on these Air Jordans.

Week 3


Adidas Yeezy 500 Granite

  • Retail Price: $200
  • Estimated Resell: $280
  • Release Date: Saturday, May 14th, 2022
  • Colorway: GRANITE

Much like most other Adidas Yeezy 500 colorways, the Yeezy 500 Granite features an upper with a mix of leather, mesh, and suede in earthy color tones.

Grey midsoles and charcoal outsoles with adiPRENE technology complete the design. On the secondary market, I believe these will resell for around $280 per pair.

Air Jordan 3 Neapolitan

  • Retail Price: $200
  • Estimated Resell: $260
  • Release Date: Sunday, May 15th, 2022
  • Colorway: White/Dark Mocha-Atmosphere-Sail
  • Style Code: CK9246-102
Air Jordan 3 Neapolitan Quarter View

With its brown and earthy colors, this Air Jordan 3 seems similar to the Jordan 3 ‘Mocha,’ but it takes a turn with pastel and flavorful impacts.

The sidewalls, toe boxes, and collars are all made of smooth leather, with a black collar eye stay. The polka-dotted design on the throats and eye stays contrasts with interlaced white laces and light pink embroidered Jump-Man emblems.

The design is completed with Mocha animal print designs on the toes and rears, as well as sail midsoles with light pink highlights and black outsoles.

On the secondary market, these sneakers will likely be worth around $260 per pair.

CLOT x Air Jordan 5 Low SP

  • Retail Price: N/A
  • Estimated Resell: $270
  • Release Date: Friday, May 20th, 2022
  • Colorway: Black/Classic Jade-Fire Red-Metallic Silver
  • Style Code: DM4640-036
CLOT x Air Jordan 5 Low Quarter View

This latest Air Jordan and CLOT collaboration has a deeper color scheme than prior collaborations.

The majority of the sneakers are covered in glossy synthetic nylon with slightly green plastic side windows. The eye stay pieces are black plastic with bright red laces and green hoops surrounding them.

There’s also an embroidered white marking around the heels, maybe a homage to CLOT. With patterned insoles and Jordan-Brand emblems, the interiors have a contrasting red color scheme.

The appearance is completed with black midsoles with white shark teeth and barely green transparent outsoles.

I expect around $70 in gross profits from these sneakers.

Week 4


Air Jordan 1 High OG Heritage

  • Retail Price: $170
  • Estimated Resell: $190
  • Release Date: Wednesday, May 25th, 2022
  • Colorway: White/University Red-Black
  • Style Code: 555088-161
Air Jordan 1 High OG Heritage Quarter View

The Air Jordan 1 High OG Heritage comes in white, black, and red, identical to the Travis Scott x Fragment x Jordan collaboration sneakers.

Crisp white leather on the sides and eye stays, blazing red toe boxes, Swooshes, and collars with black jump-man emblems are featured on the uppers. The style is completed with red outsoles and white midsoles.

On the secondary market, these will probably resell for lower than expected at around $190 per pair.

Air Jordan 5 Retro Green Bean

  • Retail Price: $200
  • Estimated Resell: $270
  • Release Date: Saturday, May 28th, 2022
  • Colorway: SILVER/GREEN BEAN-FLINT GREY

Air Jordan 5 Green Bean 2022 Side View

There are essentially no variations between these Air Jordan 5s and the prior version.

The uppers are made of fine leather in a Silver tint that seems greyer than the rest of the shoe. The laces and throats match the rest of the sneaker’s leather, but the plastic eyelet panels, which also reappear on the collars, are a deeper grey.

The collars, like the innards of the shoe, are a similar color with black stitching but are highlighted with the namesake “Green Bean” color. The tongues also include green Jump-Man emblems.

The style is completed with dark midsoles with green shark teeth emblems and semi-transparent outsoles.

On the secondary market, these will likely be worth around $270 per pair.


With that, we finish off our list but stay tuned as we will be updating this list if new profitable sneakers emerge!
