We’ll begin this weekly market recap by taking a look at some of the hottest kicks that dropped this week!

First up, the Nike SB Dunk Low Grateful Dead Bears Green, Orange, and Opti Yellow. 

This was the biggest release that we saw this week. Don’t let that get your hopes down though, this week is jam-packed with hype and massive profits!

Nike Skateboarding teamed up with legendary psychedelic rock band Grateful Dead to release the Nike SB Dunk Low Grateful Dead Bears in both green, yellow, and orange colorways. 

The SB Dunk Low Grateful Dead Bears features a fuzzy faux-fur upper with suede overlays and a jagged Swoosh to represent the stylization of the bear’s chest fur. A hidden stash pocket is featured inside the tongue that is perfect for extra storage.

Since these SB Dunks released in 3 different colorways, we’ll be analyzing each one for their resell and talk about what gives these sneakers so much profit!

We’ll go in the order of least profitable to most profitable.

Nike SB Dunk Low Grateful Dead Bears Opti Yellow

A yellow midsole, blue outsole, and signature Grateful Dead branding on the tongue complete this euphoric design.

With all three retails being $110, it will most likely come as a surprise when I say the price premium on StockX is currently 1,050.9% over the retail.

With just under 70 sales, these shoes bring in an average resale price of $1,350.

Nike SB Dunk Low Grateful Dead Bears Green

The green pair is my personal favorite. I’d like to say its the pair that can be best matched with an outfit but with these crazy vibrant colors its tough to say that.

What I think is really interesting is that these sneakers have crazy outlandish colors and unusual designs, yet resell for thousands of dollars.

It just goes to show that people are willing to pay for almost anything.

The green pair of dunks have 69 sales on StockX with an average resale price of $1,474.

And finally – Nike SB Dunk Low Grateful Dead Bears Orange

When sneakers release like this, with multiple colorways at once, usually one style is released in much lower quantity.

We saw this with the orange pair as it resells for almost triple what the other pairs sell for.

With over 85 sales on StockX, this pair has racked up an average resale price of $3,292. If you managed to somehow get your hands on this pair, I’d recommend buying a lottery ticket because it is your lucky day.

Next up, the Jordan 12 Retro Black University Gold

The Air Jordan 12 “University Gold” debuted for Jordan Brand’s Summer 2020 collection, and the variation will closely resemble Gary Payton’s player exclusive “Away” Air Jordan 12 version during his tenure with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2003-04.

The model essentially dons a two-tone theme with black tumbled leather uppers and the striking University Gold applied on the forefoot panel, entire rubber outsole, and branded areas.

The sneaker released on July 24th alongside the Dunks that we just talked about. With a retail of $190, these sneakers proved to be somewhat profitable.

With over 1,100 sales the Jordan 12 brings in an average resale price of $279, almost $80 profit!

Thirdly, the Jordan 4 Retro Off-White Sail (W)

Jordan Brand and Virgil Abloh teamed up once again to release the third silhouette in their collaborative history with the Jordan 4 Retro Off-White Sail (W).

After teasing the release of the Off-White 4 with samples in his MCA exhibit and presenting them in his Off-White FW2020 Women’s Show, Virgil Abloh finally delivered what might be the most anticipated release of 2020.

The Air Jordan 4 Sail features full-grain leather uppers with hits of mesh and translucent materials on the toebox and heel of the shoe.

From there, hits of light blue on the tongue’s Jumpman and the outsole’s Nike Swoosh provide contrast to the sail colored sneaker. 

Like all Off-White X Nike sneakers, this shoe resells for a hefty profit. With over 2,000 sales the Jordan 4 has an average resale price of $1,158, a nice gain with the $200 retail.

Finally, the Bape X Coca Cola Collaboration. 

Like we’ve done with past streetwear releases, we’ll keep it simple. We’ll list the item name, retail, number of sales, and average resale price!

Number of Sales: 9

Average Resale Price: $158

The Bape X Coca Cola is an unlikely match yet the apparel and accessories that they released were really nice.

 

My personal favorite item would have to be either the shorts or the glass, but I think every item was executed really well. Hope to see more collabs like this from both Bape and Coca Cola in the future!
