First up, the Jordan 1 Low White Lucky Green Black

This Air Jordan 1 Low sneaker starts off with a smooth white leather construction on the upper with black detailing on the inner liner and the tumbled leather Swooshes on the side panels.

To complete the Celtics look we see green on the ankle/heel, the Jumpman branding on the tongues, and the embroidered Wings logo on the heels.

A white rubber midsole and green rubber outsole cap off the design.

With the Celtics making a decent run in the NBA playoffs, this shoe was expected to be a pretty big hit among sneakerheads.

Given sneakerhead culture and basketball culture are so intertwined, you would have thought this sneaker would have done well in terms of resale.

Now I don’t know the numbers that this sneaker released in, but I do know the StockX data, 0 sales.

There are a couple of asks for some sizes, but nothing consistent. This sneaker is an example of how useful these articles can be for you. If you learn what shoes aren’t profitable here, you’ll be able to take that information and actually profit more.

Secondly, the Nike Air Max 1 Mystic Dates.

In the past year, the Nike Air Max 1 has begun to rely quite heavily on its OG color blocking, the highly praised “Evergreen” arriving as a result.

And thanks to the latter’s reception, it seems the brand is taking notes as they continue the makeshift pack with two new colorways: the previously revealed “Mystic Dates” and this newly seen “Spiral Sage.”

It can be found along the entirety of the toe cap as well as the mudguard and heel while also more quietly along the swoosh and embroidered branding.

Otherwise, the palette is quite monochromatic as the rest of the leather and mesh construction bears a white and grey like that of the OGs.

But to further differentiate, Nike has added a small miniature check right along the forefoot in silver thread.

In terms of resale, we have some more bad news. 0 sales on the StockX platform. Another example of how useful these articles can be for you. If you learn what shoes aren’t profitable here, you’ll be able to take that information and actually profit more.

Finally the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Carbon

Kanye West and Adidas keep the ball rolling with the Yeezy 350 V2 Carbon.

This release marks the 12th colorway of the favorite 350 V2 model in 2020 and this colorway’s dark-hued upper makes it the perfect piece of footwear for fall.

The Yeezy 350 V2 Carbon holds all of the familiar elements that make the silhouette so popular; breathable Primeknit solid black mesh with its signature side stripe, ribbed patterned off-white midsole, and classic BOOST cushioning make the 350 V2 Carbon easy to love and easy to wear.

In terms of resale for this Yeezy we’ve seen some pretty postive numbers. With over 660 sales on the StockX platofrm, the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Carbon has racked up a price premium of 20.9% and an average resale price of $295.

With the $220 retail price tag, this sneaker is not a bad pickup if you were able to get a pair or two.

For resellers, this week was a nightmare.

We didn’t see a ton of profit and this week was definitely what I would call a learning week. Take the time to learn about how different shoes do on the resell market and apply that information to every week.

Even if you did take a small loss this week, at least you learned that specific sneakers don’t do well on the market. You’ll be able to easily tell what sneakers will be profitable in the future. This information is so so so valuable.
