Air Jordan Zoom 92| History

Via size?

The Air Jordan Zoom 98 brings fans a fusion of classic Air Jordan style choices and innovation. The style of the sneaker is inspired by the 1992 era which saw releases such as Nike Air Jordan VII, Air Max 180, and the Air Force 5.

The aesthetics as well as the functionality have both been borrowed from these sneakers. While improving upon each of them to fit the modern era, Jordan Brand kept it as true as possible to that 90’s vibe.

The split upper is inspired by the Air Jordan 7, providing more transparency and depth. Another inspiration from the Air Jordan 7 is the “9” badge found on the heel.

Furthermore, the exposed forefoot Zoom Air Bag is inspired by the Air Force 5 and Air Max 180. Adding to that similar aesthetic is the myriad of textures included on the sneaker.

“When you think back to that energy out of Barcelona in ’92, people all over the world were able to watch the dream, and the footwear gave them a piece of it,”-Gentry Humphrey (VP of Jordan Brand).

Chris Gibbs, the owner of LA Union has a peculiar inspiration behind a lot of his designs. Gibbs has an unconventional love for weathered and vintage items. He also goes out of his way to repair some of these items that in many cases are sneakers.

Although Gibbs’ favorite Jordan was the AJ III, the first collaboration went along with the Air Jordan 1. That was done for various reasons, most importantly for the sentimental value of the AJ1. Gibbs claimed that the AJ1 was a timeless sneaker that will never go out of style.

After multiple attempts at creating something as true to the OG 1985 Jordan 1 as possible, they finally succeeded. The end product was a carefully distressed version of the 1985 Air Jordan 1.

The collaboration was an instant success with sneakers being sold out instantly. Today they’re worth a lot of money on the resale market.

To estimate the resale value for the Union LA x Air Jordan Zoom 92, let’s take a look at some of those releases.

Union LA Air Jordan 1 Black Toe

From StockX

Retail Price: $190

Peak Resell: $2,600

Release Day: 11/17/2020

Colorway: White/Black-Varsity Red-Wolf Grey

The Union LA Air Jordan 1 Black Toe dropped back in 2018 and took the sneaker world by storm. It features a wolf grey collar, “UN/LA” branding below the “Air Jordan” logo and a black ‘Swoosh ‘

A red heel, white toe-box, and black toe provides some contrast while the yellowed mid-sole reflects Chris Gibbs’ love for weathered items. Finally, a red out-sole finishes off the design.

On StockX, the average selling price is a whopping $1,400 which is an average gross profit of $1,210 per pair! Had you sold these at peak resale prices, profits would have been as high as $2,410.

Although the colorway is similar to the Union LA x Air Jordan Zoom 92, resale may not be quite as high.

Union Air Jordan 1 Storm Blue

Retail Price: $190

Peak Resell: $3,000

Release Date: 11/17/2018

Colorway: White/Storm Blue-Varsity Red

The resale prices for these are is just as high, with the average on Stock being $1,360. That’s an average gross profit of $1,170 while at peak resale prices, gross profits are as high as $2,810.

Colorway: Guava Ice/Light Bone-Brigade Blue-Light Fusion Red

The Union LA x Air Jordan 4 Guava Ice features a guava upper along with blue and red covering the collar. A Light bone sole with an exposed air unit completes the design.

Although people were skeptical at first, probably because of the crazy color tones, the resale value seems to suggest that these are a huge hit.

They haven’t released yet however; the Union LA Air Jordan 4 has already been sold for over $2,000! The Union LA x Air Jordan Zoom 92 probably won’t have resale as high but it won’t be too far off either.

Estimated Resell

The Air Jordan x Union LA collaboration has been a long awaited one and it looks like it was well worth the wait.

To get your money back on StockX, you’ll need to sell the Union LA x Air Jordan Zoom 92 for at least $190. By using my estimated resell value, you can except massive profits of around $500!

By selling on websites such as eBay, you can earn even higher profits because of the service fee exemption. Although the Union LA x Air Jordan 4 resell is expected to be quite a bit higher, I would not sleep on these sneakers!

The Union LA x Jordan Delta Mid is also looking to be extremely profitable. Bids on StockX go as high as $800. That will tone down a bit after release however , I still expect gross profits of around $300 with a $450 estimated resell.
