ADIDAS YEEZY DESERT BOOT TAUPE BLUE

Adidas

Retail Price: $200

Average Resell: $310

Release Date: March/29/2021

Colorway: TAUPE BLUE

This Adidas Yeezy Desert Boot offers color tones that let you blend into the environment while exploring the great outdoors while also catching eyes if worn on the streets.

Constructed with nubuck, leather, and mesh, dark brown netted underlays are contrasted by lighter suede overlays. The light brown suede eye stays are separated from the darker brown netted throats. TAUPE BLUE midsoles and rugged outsoles complete the design.

These sneakers are decently profitable with an average selling price of $310, that’s a gross profit of over $100 per pair. Had you sold these Boots at their peak resale values, gross profits would have been as high as $300.

Overall, this Yeezy Desert Boot was a pretty good sneaker to start off the week!

Retail Price: $110

Average Resell: $350

Release Date: 03/29/2021

Colorway: Sail/Medium Curry-Fossil

The Nike Dunk Low Medium Curry initially released for Asian and EU markets on January 28th. However, returned stateside on March 30th for a retail price of $110 per pair.

These sneakers come in suede “Medium Curry” overlays on the toes, rear panels, and eye stays. Fossil leather Swooshes cover the lateral sides and matching underlays cover the toe boxes and side panels. Suede heel tabs with Nike branding match the leather Swooshes while white midsoles and dark brown outsoles complete the design.

It came as no surprise when these sneakers sold out in Asian, European, as well as American markets as soon as they released. The resale price on average is over $355 currently on StockX which is a gross profit of $240 per pair.

OFF-WHITE X CONVERSE CHUCK 70

Retail Price: $130

Average Resell: $540

Release Date: March/30/2021

Colorway: WHITE/BOLD ORANGE-BLACK

Virgil Abloh and Converse fans received a much-awaited restock in the Off White x Converse Chuck 70!

These sneakers feature plain white leather uppers with matching white throats and crisp white laces. The contrast is added in by the branding and Virgil Abloh’s overly simplified texts. Medial panels feature Converse headquarters’ address while the midsoles feature OFF-WHITE’s signature zebra striped patterns.

Branding on the heels, orange zip ties, and white outsoles complete the design.

Initially, we thought the resale value would decline, however, that was not the case. These sneakers are still selling for north of $500, yielding investors gross profits of at least $400 per pair!

Nike Dunk Low “Flip The Old School”

Retail Price: $100

Average Resell: N/A

Release Date: April/01/2021

Colorway: WHITE/PURPLE-WHITE

The Nike Dunk Low Flip The Old School is inspired by the OG City Attack Pack from 1999 and features similar color tones but reverses them.

These Dunk Lows sport smooth leather underlays that are white on the interior panels and purple on the lateral sides. Overlays, on the other hand, feature ostrich leather with distinct bumps, contrasting the underlays by being either white or a royal purple.

Golden branding on the tongues and heels makes the colors pop even more. White midsoles and purple outsoles complete the look. These Nike Dunks also come wrapped in tissue paper with creative graphics that can be worn as is. The same graphics are also featured on the insoles.

NICE KICKS X AMOEBA MUSIC X NEW BALANCE 992

Rolling Stone

Retail price: $240 (Each)

Estimated Resell: $400

Release Date: April/02/2021

Colorway: Grey/Yellow & Teal/Black

The Nice Kicks x Amoeba Music x New Balance collaboration included two new sneakers and dropped on April 2nd. These sneakers are inspired by traditional Music Record stores, created with color tones inspired by Amoeba Music’s own store aesthetics.

Mesh materials make up most of both sneakers. The first shoe features yellow and grey color tones with suede overlays for a more premium feel. The second colorway features similar blocking but with teal and black hues splattered all over.

“Peace” written in bubble writing replace NB’s logo and instead, hint at the California-based record store.

As expected, these sneakers sold out and are fairly profitable on reseller’s markets. The average selling price per pair is an impressive $400 which is a gross profit of $160 per pair however they’ve been sold for even as high as $600 per pair!

SKEPTA X NIKE AIR MAX TAILWIND V

Sneaker News

Retail price: $190

Average Resell: $250

Release Date: April/02/2021

Colorway: BLACK/CHROME-BRIGHT BLUE

British songwriter and rapper “Skepta” partnered up with Nike yet again on a butterfly-inspired Tailwind V.

The butterfly wings signify Skepta’s career resurgence and perhaps, the resurgence of the Nike Tailwind sneakers. Bright blue hues cover most of the sneaker’s upper with black hits throughout, including on the leather toes and caging. Chrome Swooshes on the lateral sides give off a futuristic vibe to the otherwise retro-looking sneaker.

Black midsoles with exposed Air Max units and black rugged outsoles complete the design.

Resale for these kicks is nothing out of the ordinary as expected. However, resellers have been able to make small gross profits of around $60 per pair.

AIR JORDAN 1 ZOOM CMFT “STADIUM GREEN”

Hypebeast

Retail Price: $140

Average Resell: $230

Release Date: April/03/2021

Colorway: STADIUM GREEN/BLACK-WHITE

The Air Jordan 1 Zoom silhouette is taking off and starting to sell out everywhere. The Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT Stadium Green is no different and was actually quite profitable.

Feature color tones reminiscent of the Lucky Green Jordan 1 High, white underlays, and green suede overlays cover most of this sneaker. Black laces and Jordan Wings logos provide contrast while clean white midsoles and Stadium Green outsoles complete the design.

These kicks are selling for an average price of $250 while even selling for prices as high as $350!
