The Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 High OG SP Chicago is a highly anticipated release with potentially very lucrative resale. Before we estimate its resale, let me walk you through some background info.

Air Jordan 1 Retro| The One That Started It All

YANG

Designed by Peter Moor in 1985, the Air Jordan 1 was crafted specifically for the needs of the Chicago Bulls’ star, Michael Jordan.

The Air Jordan 1 is probably Nike’s most popular basketball sneaker ever. Inspired by the OG of the basketball game, the Air Force 1, and others, these kicks took the basketball sneaker world by storm.

It all started with a young Michael Jordan during his rise to fame as a rookie. He was approached by Nike that promised to build a brand around him but surprisingly, he declined.

He actually preferred the Converse Chuck Taylor rather than Nike sneakers. Claiming that “the soles were too thick” as it didn’t let him feel the court beneath him.

Finally, MJ received the Air Jordan 1 and even then, he hated it. Said they Looked “Clown” like. Gradually, however, it started to grow on him and he ended up enjoying playing in the AJ1 every time.

Today, the Air Jordan 1 has transcended sports and has become a fashion/street-wear icon. Some limited variants sell for thousands of dollars over their retail prices on reseller markets.

The latest Trophy Room Air Jordan 1 is also expected to have very a resale value.

Trophy Room & Jordan Brand

The Trophy Room is a sneaker boutique, a very special sneaker boutique that opened on the 23rd of May in 2016. The boutique is owned by the son of Michael Jordan, Marcus Jordan. It’s inspired by the lavish trophy room that’s located in Michael Jordan’s Chicago Residence.

This boutique often re-releases exclusive Air Jordan colorways. There are also more limited sneakers that Marcus releases as exclusive collaborations with Jordan brand.

In an interview with CNBC, Marcus stated that he had high hopes for his boutique. He took inspiration from his father’s success and with his advice, aims to achieve great things.

The Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 High OG SP Chicago is perhaps his most anticipated sneaker releases. To estimate its resale value, let’s head on over to StockX.

Trophy Room Air Jordan 23 White

From StockX

Retail Price: $275

Peak Resell: $1,080

Release Date: 05/23/2016

Colorway: White/Gold

The Air Jordan 23 Trophy Room is designed by MJ’s son, Marcus, and released exclusively at his boutique in Orlando, Florida. The Trophy Room Air Jordan 23 came in 2 colorways and in extremely limited quantities.

With only 523 sneakers in existence, each of these Air Jordan 23s is individually numbered. They’re also specially embroidered all over the upper with “MJ”.

These sneakers also feature a gold midsole, golden “HEIR” behind the tongues, and Trophy Room branding on the translucent outsole. This luxurious sneaker retailed for $275 and sold out instantly.

The average selling price on StockX is currently $830 per pair which is a gross profit of $555. At peak resale prices, gross profits are as high as $800 per pair. I believe the Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 High OG SP Chicago will have even higher resale prices.

Trophy Room Air Jordan 5 University Red

From StockX

Retail Price: $200

Peak Resell: $7,300

Release Date: 05/18/2019

Colorway: UNIVERSITY RED/UNIVERSITY RED-ICE BLUE-SAIL-METALLIC GOLD

This Air Jordan 5 released back in mid-2019, along with another colorway, and set the sneaker world ablaze. These kicks are highly sought after and released in extremely limited quantities.

They feature a vibrant University Red upper with ice blue side panels, black eye stays, and a golden “23” on the heel. A black midsole with a Sail blaze pattern and translucent outsole finish off the design.

On StockX, the average selling price is massive $5,450 per pair. That’s a gross profit of over $5,000 while at peak resale, gross profits are as high as $7,000 per pair.

Trophy Room Air Jordan 5 Ice Blue

From StockX

Retail Price: $200

Peak Resell: $2,000

Release Date: 05/18/2019

Colorway: Ice Blue/University Red

Although the Trophy Room Air Jordan 5 Ice Blue is less popular among the two, it’s still highly anticipated and extremely difficult to get your hands on.

This AJV features a cool Ice Blue upper with University Red hits on the collar lining and midsole. The white eye stays match the white midsole while a translucent outsole completes the design.

On StockX, the average selling price is $1,100 which is a gross profit of around $900. Peak resale prices yield gross profits of up to $1,800. I believe the Trophy Room x Air Jordan 1 High OG SP Chicago will have a slightly higher resale value.

Retail Price: $170

Estimated Resell: $2,000

Release Date: November/11/2020

UPDATE: The release date has been delayed until further notice (Likely 2021)

Colorway: WHITE/VARSITY RED-SAIL-BLACK

After releasing his own take on the Air Jordan 5, 17, and 23. Marcus Jordan is all set to release his own version of his father’s legendary Air Jordan 1 Chicago.

The sneakers look similar to the originals, sporting a white, red, and black upper with a few but significant tweaks to the aesthetics. The red overlay sparkles, while the stitching used, is white instead of red which provides a subtle contrast.

An interesting detail appears on the side of the heels, with Michael Jordan’s signature superimposed on it. Co-branding is also featured on the insoles.

Also featured is a yellow outsole, possibly hinting at the age of the Air Jordan 1’s design. Finally, a translucent outsole with blue and red stars completes the design.

Take a close look via these detailed images.
