First up, the Jordan 1 Retro High White Black Volt University Gold,

Jordan Brand started 2021 on a high note with the Jordan 1 High Volt Gold. The Volt Gold offers a new take on the renowned Black Toe theme by implementing new materials and features that contribute to a reconstructed design aesthetic.

In familiar Black Toe color blocking, the upper of the Jordan 1 Volt Gold is composed of white, black, and yellow leather. A Volt yellow-tinted panel donning the Jordan Wings logo wraps the ankle. Unlike OG Jordan 1 designs that feature double stitch reinforcement, the Volt Gold utilizes single stitch reinforcement on its overlays, creating dimensionality with exposed edges.

A nylon tongue with exposed foam edges and a reverse transparent tongue label emphasize Jordan’s reconstructed design approach. A yellowed midsole and black outsole offer an aged look.

Despite the crazy and unusual colorway of the sneaker, the market has shown some good numbers so far. With over 3000 sales on StockX, the Jordan 1 Retro High White Black Volt University Gold has racked up a price premium of 31.2% and an average resale price of $237.

Not often do two of the top athletes in different sports come together to celebrate one another, but that’s exactly what LeBron James and Kylian Mbappé have done with their “The Chosen 2” collaboration.

The joint-effort adds black, purple, and orange accents to the Nike LeBron 18 and Nike Mercurial. More than eye-catching detailing, the palette and its execution on the forthcoming footwear nods to the parallel, championship paths between the kid from Akron, OH, and the kid from Bondy, Paris, France.

James and Mbappé’s logos appear on both shoes, while a unique collaborative graphic appears on the heel of the made-for-basketball pair. As part of the monumental project, NIKE, Inc. has pledged to donate to IBKM (Inspired by Kylian Mbappé) and LeBron James Family Foundation.

This was a massive collaboration to the start of 2021, and the market is repeating that. With over 160 sales on the StockX Market alone, the Nike Lebron 18 Kylian Mbappe has racked up a price premium of 59.5% and an average resale price of $259.

If you managed to pick up a pair of these, 50% profit margins are great in the resell game.

Continuing the roll-out of the OverBreak SP, Nike has now put together a Mars Yard-like “Fossil” colorway.

Borrowing the color scheme from Tom Sachs‘ NikeCraft collaboration, the Nike OverBreak SP “Fossil” features a synthetic “Sail” upper base accented by tan overlays. Aside from bold oversized red leather Swooshes, additional branding comes in the form of tongue tags, printed insoles, and “NIKE” marked heel tabs.

Other detailing includes matching sock liners, trail-style laces, and exposed stitching. Finally, elevating the shoe is the same sole unit found on the Nike ISPA OverReact done in light gray with black rubber segments at the toe and rear.

Priced at $140 USD, the Nike OverBreak SP “Fossil” released in Asia on January 5 with a stateside release yet to be announced.

With over 120 sales on StockX alone, the Nike Overbreak SP Mars Yard has racked up a price premium of 161.4% and an average resale price of $276. A price premium of 161.4% is great and a great profit for any of you resellers out there!

If you were able to cop a pair, you are in for a great profit!
