Wasted-Youth-Nike-SB-Dunk-Low-Full-View-Resale
Nike

Retail Price: $110

Average Resell: $450+

Release Date: April/06/2021

Colorway: Black/University Red-White-Black

Verdy, founder of “Girls Don’t Cry” and “Wasted Youth” has long been on the rise within the Japanese fashion/streetwear space. His first collaboration with Nike SB under the “Girls Don’t Cry” Label was a huge hit and the “Wasted Youth” collaboration is no different.

Black denim uppers cover most of the sneakers with visible white stitching. The patches around the toes can also be seen, contributing to a deconstructed look. Meanwhile, red stitching on the heel provides contrast.

Speaking of the heel, white “Wasted” and “Youth” embroidery cover the heel tabs with metallic heel pulls. On the medial sides, Swooshes entwined with red roses provide further contrast.

White midsoles and black outsoles complete the look.

On StockX, as expected, they’re selling for gross profits of around $450+ per pair. Yielding profits of over $300 for resellers.

Retail Price: $140

Average Resell: $200

Release Date April/09/2021

Colorway: RED/WHITE-TEAL GLASS

Coca-Cola, the world’s most popular drink, is no stranger to bizarre collaborations. They’ve collaborated on sneakers before such as KITH and Converse, however, this release marks the first-ever with ASICS.

This collaboration included two sneakers. The first featured a red upper with White cropped Coca-Cola branding on the overlays. A sneaker that’s likely only going to be worn by the truest of fans.

The other pairs feature subtler color tones that are slightly more wearable. White uppers embellished by red Coca-Cola branding and hits all over.

On StockX, the red colorway is slightly more profitable, yielding small gross profits of around $60 which was as expected.

Retail Price: $200

Average Resell: $270

Release Date: April/09/2021

Colorway: WHITE/RUSH BLUE-UNIVERSITY RED-WHITE

Also known as The Nike LeBron 7 Baseball Blue, these sneakers sports a colorway that is, as the moniker suggests, inspired by the Los Angeles Dodgers. LeBron’s fellow west-coast team.

Uppers consist of subtle color tones with a pattern constructed with Flywire on the sides. White Swooshes with blue borders provide contrast while red stitching on the heels and tongues mimic stitching on a common baseball.

Toe regions, mudguards, and midsoles feature blue leather with fern-like graphics. Soles with full-length air units and white outsoles complete the look.

Average selling prices are currently around $270. That’s an average gross profit of $70 per pair.

OVERKILL X ADIDAS ZX 8500 GRAFFITI

Adidas

Retail Price: $140

Average Resell: $240

Release Date: April/09/2021

Colorway: CRYSTAL WHITE/SIGNAL GREEN/CORE BLACK

This Adidas ZX combines both the 10 000 and the 8000 series into a new hybrid sneaker. This particular collaboration represents the “O” in the A-ZX series that’s featured various collaborations and this one is with the berlin-based boutique “Overkill”.

Overkill’s inspiration comes from graffiti art which is evident judging by the upper of this ZX 8500. The upper is constructed with mesh and suede with neon green hits, metallic silver toe boxes, and grey suede toes.

A black stitched OVERKILL branding is found on the toe boxes while “OK” texts can be found in different regions of the sneakers.

3M reflective materials, white midsoles, and Torsion-fused black outsoles finish off the look.

Resale for these sneakers has been slightly higher than what we expected. Those who managed to cop could actually have earned gross profits of $100 per pair.

Air Jordan 5 “Raging Bull” (2021)

Nike

Retail Price: $190

Average Resell: $310

Release Date: April/10/2021

Colorway: VARSITY RED/BLACK-WHITE

First seen as part of the Defining Moments Pack in 2012. This sneaker features almost an identical appearance and is one of the most hyped sneakers of this past week.

The Jordan 5 Raging Bull features a blazing red suede upper with red laces. Near the heels, “23” texts add a layer of detail while mesh netting on the throats and side panels provide contrast.

Black hits include black eye stays and midsoles while tongues feature grey reflective materials with black Jump-Man logos. WW II fighter jet-inspired shark tooth on the midsoles and semi-translucent outsoles complete the design.

On StockX, the average selling price is $310 which is a gross profit of $120. However, they’ve even been sold for as high as $1,500!

Nike SB Dunk Low “Celadon”

Nike

Retail Price: $100

Average Resell: $300

Release Date: April/10/2021

Colorway: BLUE/TAN-LIGHT BLUE

SB Dunks are always one of the most profitable and these are no exception. The SB Dunk Low Celadon is the successor to last year’s ACG Terra, inspired by Nike’s hiking boot.

These sneakers feature colorways that not only help them blend into outdoor environments but also catch the eyes when worn on the streets with vibrant hits all over.

This SB Dunk Low stays true to that lineup with suede tan overlays and bright blue underlays. The majority of the upper is suede, providing more of a lifestyle-sneaker feel rather than a performance one.

Khaki laces are contrasted by bright blue mesh throats and tongues with “Nike SB” branding. Meanwhile, suede turquoise Swooshes cover the sides of each sneaker.

Inside, blue footbeds are coved with printed “Nike” and “Zoom” branding while the rears feature embroidered tan “Nike” branding.

White speckled midsoles, similar to the ACG Terra, and black rubber outsoles complete the design.

Resale prices on StockX are around $300 which is a very decent $200 gross profit per pair. These SB Dunks have even been sold for as high as $500.
