Air Jordan 1 High OG Patina

Retail Price: $170

Average Resell: $250

Release Date: 05/04/2021 (US)

Colorway: Black/Grey-Rust

Although released in the EU way back on March 25th, the Air Jordan 1 High OG Patina finally released stateside on May 4th.

This OG colorway is reminiscent of the Bodega x Nike Dunk High in terms of its earthy color tones.

Rusty leather overlays cover the scuff-guards, toes, and Swooshes while plain black leather is featured on the toe boxes, side panels, throats, and collars.

Grey hits cover the collar overlays and rear panels while white midsoles and black outsoles finish off the design.

Sine these dropped way earlier in the EU markets, resale value declined over time. However, if you managed to cop, you still may have earned around $90 in gross profits.

Atmos x Nike LeBron 18 Low “Viotech”

Nike

Retail Price: $160

Average Resell: N/A

Release Date: 05/04/2021

Colorway: Viotech

Nike and LeBron James have collaborated before to pay homage to Nike’s OG Air Max colorways such as the Atmos x Air Max 1 Elephant and Safari. The sneakers featured LeBron 16s in the very same colorways and this time, the duo emulated that project with another colorway.

The Atmos x LeBron 18 Low Viotech features a light tan leather upper with darker brown suede side panels. The tongues feature “Air Max” branding while large violet Swooshes provide a stark contrast.

Chocolate mudguards with tiny golden Swooshes and tan outsoles complete the look.

Although there’s not much information available on the secondary market, you probably could have earned lunch money in profits.

Air Jordan 11 Low Citrus (W)

Nike

Retail Price: $185

Average Resell: $270

Release Date: 05/06/2021

Colorway: White/Bright Citrus

Following the release of the Air Jordan 11 Legend Blue, Jordan Brand released yet another colorway in women’s exclusive sizes.

As part of Jordan Brand’s 2021 Summer Collection, this sneaker brings the perfect vibe with its fresh zesty color tones. The entire upper features grain leather on the top half with white laces and orange “Jordan” tags across the throats.

The mudguards, on the other hand, feature white patent leather while the heels feature “Jump-Man” and “23” logos. White midsoles and “Citrus” outsoles complete the design.

On StockX, the average selling price is $270, a gross profit of almost $90 per pair. However, they’ve even been sold for as high as $500 per pair!

AIR JORDAN 11 LOW “LEGEND BLUE”

Nike

Retail Price: $185

Average Resell: $250

Release Date: 05/07/2021

Colorway: WHITE/WHITE-BLACK-LEGEND BLUE

The Air Jordan 11 Low Legend Blue features color tones that stay true to the first retros from 2014.

An all-white color scheme dominates most of this shoe, appearing predominantly on the leather upper that’s divided into two parts. The top half features grain leather with white laces that blend right in, contrasted only by ice-blue “Jordan” tags on the throats.

Insoles feature black footbeds with “Jump-Man” and “25” graphics, nodding at the silhouette’s 25th anniversary. White midsoles and ice blue outsoles finish off the design.

On StockX, the average selling price is $250, a gross profit of around $60 per pair. Although these pairs sold out within minutes, their resale value is relatively weak.

Air Jordan 6 Rings Hare

Retail Price: $170

Average Resell: $170

Release Date: 05/07/2021

Colorway: White/Black Light/Silver-True Red

The Air Jordan 6 Rings Hare takes on an OG colorway from the ‘90s.

The upper features white leather on the mudguards with small perforations while the side panels feature silver strapped leather panels. Throats rock a “True Red” hue that’s wrapped in white laces and a red lace toggle.

Meanwhile, tongues are constructed with neoprene embellished by patterns and chenille badges. Red midsoles and multi-colored hues finish off the design.

These sneakers haven’t been very popular and are selling for under retail prices on StockX.

ADIDAS YEEZY 500 “ENFLAME”

 

Retail Price: $200

Average Resell: $315

Release Date: 05/24/2021

Colorway: ENFLAME

Originally scheduled to drop in April, the Adidas Yeezy 500 Enflame was released on May 8th in a colorway that diverges from the typically muted colorations Yeezy uses for the 500 silhouettes.

Dark brown mesh underlays are featured in perforated fashion all over the side panels. Overlays feature trimmed leather while eye stays also rock a suede construction in a dark blue color.

Blue laces provide contrast while light tan suede toe boxes blend right in with the mudguards that feature a similar hue. Lastly, brown insoles and orange sole units finish off the design.

The average selling price on StockX has fallen a bit over the past few weeks, however, these Yeezys still yield decent profits of around $120 per pair.

 AIR JORDAN 7 RETRO FLINT

Nike

Retail Price: $190

Average Resell: $230

Release Date: 05/08/2021

Colorway: WHITE/FLINT GREY-BLACK-VARSITY PURPLE

The Air Jordan 7 Flint is a retro of the “Flint” colorway that debuted back in 2006. This famed moniker has been used on a few other Jordan Brand sneakers and it returned on the 8th of May yet again for the Air Jordan 7.

Construction diverges from the 2006 variant with grey suede underlays that appear on the side panels, toes, and collars next to the purple Jump-Man emblem.

Asymmetrically laid tumbled white leather overlays gracefully separates itself from the dark base while white laces blend right in. White midsoles and dotted grey outsoles finish off the design.

The average selling price on StockX is just shy of $230, a small gross profit of $40.

BAPE x Adidas ABC Camo

Retail Price: $150

Average Resell: $215

Release Date: 05/08/2021

Colorway: Green Camo/White/Off-White

BAPE and Adidas return once again for an explosive collaboration on the Adidas Superstar!

The sneaker is shrouded in army camo patterns with crisp white laces, heel tabs, and a BAPE star logo on the lateral sides. Logos on the tongues and a BAPE dubrae at the bottom of the laces add a layer of detail.

Meanwhile, Sail toe boxes, midsoles, and outsoles finish off the design.

The average selling price on reseller’s websites is $215 which is a $65 gross profit. Although they’ve even been sold for as high as $700, resale for the most part is quite average for these sneakers.
