Retail Price: $220
Peak Resell: $400
Release Date: May 17th/2021
Colorway Sumac and Tactile Orange
There seems to be a rising frequency, not just in the amount of 500 High releases but of 500s in general. These two 500 Highs feature typical Yeezy-like earthy color tones.
The “Sumac” features dark brown mesh underlays with suede and leather overlays. A stark contrast is provided by the bright red leather stripes on the overlays and on the laces. Dark brown mudguards and gray outsoles complete the look.
The “tactile Orange”, on the other hand, features similar hues except that the contrast is provided by the bright orange outsole. Reminiscent of the Adidas Yeezy 500 Enflame.
These sneakers took their time to sell out, however, are currently selling for small profits on the secondary markets. Both their average resale prices on StockX are around $250 which is a $30 gross profit.

Retail price: $180
Peak Resell: $850
Release Date: May 18th/2021
Colorway: DEEP ROYAL BLUE/WHITE/PALE IVORY/BLACK
Following the Ambush x Nike Dunk High Lethal Pink and Black/White. The duo gifted fans with this thing of beauty, the Ambush Nike Dunk High Deep Royal.
Featuring mostly a leather construction, this Dunk high features typical color blocking but with stark overlay adjustments.
Clean white leather covers the side panels, heels, toe boxes, and the throats that lead up to clean white tongues with blue “Ambush”-branded tags.
The same hue covers the scuff guards, eye stays, collars, and heels. Meanwhile, black Swooshes that are detached from either side provide a signature AMBUSH-feel. Pale Ivory midsoles and Deep Blue outsoles finish off the design.
As expected, these sneakers are highly profitable. Selling for average gross profits of around $270 per pair. They’ve even been sold for whopping price tags of over $800!

Retail Price: $100
Peak Resell: $500
Release Date: May 19th/2021

The average selling price on StockX is $240 which is a decent $140 gross profit per pair.
NIKE KOBE 6 PROTRO POP
Retail Price: $180
Peak Resell: $270
Release Date: May 20th/2021
Colorway: White/Neutral Grey-Del Sol-Black
Inspired by and a retro of Kobe Bryant’s 2011 post-season footwear, the Nike Kobe 6 POP or “Del Sol” comes in virtually an identical colorway.
The upper features a scaled white and grey hue with black lateral side Swooshes. White throats wrapped with basic white laces lead up to a pair of Kobe branded tongues.
Interiors feature “Del Sol” texts while the heels present Kobe’s signature, as with most Kobe 6 sneakers. Black midsoles and yellow/white outsoles add the finishing touches.
On the secondary market, these are selling for average prices of $270 which is as expected. The larger sizes are selling for over $300.
NIKE DUNK LOW LEMON DROP
Retail Price: $100
Peak Resell: $400
Release Date: May 20th/2021
Colorway: Lemon Drop/Opti Yellow-Sail-Zitron
Inspired but none other than a lemon, the Nike Dunk Low Lemon Drop sports zesty color tones including Opti Yellow and Zitron hues.
These lifestyle sneakers feature white tumbled leather underlays on the side panels and perforated white toe boxes. Overlays feature a subtle, almost Barely Orange suede material that’s also sparsely available on the tongues.
Opti Yellow branding appears on the tongues while Swooshes feature lemon skin-textured materials that extend all the way to the heel tabs. Underneath, an embroidered lemon appears which is the inspiration for this colorway.
White midsoles and tan rubber outsoles finish off the design.
On StockX, these sneakers are selling for decent gross profits of over $310 per pair. That’s a gross profit of over $200 which is an incredible margin.
NIKE DUNK LOW BARELY GREEN
Retail price: $100
Peak Resell: $300
Release Date: May 21st/2021
Colorway: Sail/Crimson Tint-Barely Green-White
Nike has been showering their female fan base with an ever-expanding frequency of Dunk Low releases.
The Nike Dunk Low Barely Green dropped last week in women’s sizes and sold out instantly. It features pastel color tones on the overlays, particularly the toes, eye stays, and rear panels.
Meanwhile, an even softer green shade covers the side panels and toe boxes. Subtle contrast is provided by the “Crimson Tint” Swooshes. Lastly, white midsoles and light green outsoles complete the design.
The resale value of these sneakers is an average of $90 while the peak resale value is $300. This shows that standard-colored Nike Dunks aren’t as profitable as they used to be.
PSG X AIR JORDAN 7
Retail Price: $225
Peak Resell: $760
Release Date: May 22nd/2021
Marking the duo’s cleanest colorway yet, the PSG Air Jordan 7 Dons hues inspired by PSG’s kit which sports white, black, and golden hits.
These Jordan 7s feature crisp white leather uppers with windowed side panels that reveal the Huarache-inspired interior booties, revealing blue and red underlays and a “PANAME” tag over it.
White laces wrap the perforated navy throats that lead up to a pair of dark blue tongues with embossed red “Jordan” and navy “Air” branding.
Collars also feature mesh paneling adorned with metallic golden Jump-Man logos. The heel tabs replace the famed “23” with an embossed Eiffel Tower and “fleur-de-lis” badge.
Blue and white midsoles coupled with black outsoles complete the design. These sneakers also come in special dual-branded boxes.
Resale for them hasn’t been too great as the average is currently just around $250 per pair. The highest these Jordan 7s have been sold for is $760.
