Resale Report: 4.29.17

By all accounts week ending April 29th was a big one for  Sneakers.

Adi had yet more heat on Wednesday the  26th: a UB, in sure- to-sell white.

Nike countered the next day with release of another Uptempo – in collaboration with Supreme- plus four new Vapormax colorways, and five of the Sock Racer.

Since Thursday is ,of course , Saturday according to Adidas, the Three Stripes answered Nike’s powerhouse capsule with six more pairs of its own, four of which were in partnership with Vancouver’s Wings and Horns.

On Friday,  Nike had more hoops kicks on deck,  a would-be special quartet of drops featuring Three retro colorways of Dennis Rodman’s  Air Ndestrukt , plus a very nice,  multicolor KD 9 that has yet to actually release. Adidas,  meanwhile,  dropped four more of its EQT Boost/ Support and ADV styles on tap.

Saturday was once again Yeezy day, although by the look of things , the latest Triple White rendition looks to be one of the most widely released,  based on sale prices to date.

That shoe was nevertheless the ‘One’ on the day.  Jordan Brand did  drop another Pantone sitter via a Retro 7 – plus a GS shoe – while Nike’s  Scottie Pippen release sold out,  and the LeBron 14 Red Carpet seems to not have dropped.

Adidas

With the arrival of the Iniki , everything else adi drops is sort of ho hum now.

The above is, of course,  a joke (for now) , but on partially.

Ultra Boost

This is because, while it is fact that anyone who did not think the Triple White UB 3. 0 would sell is a fool, buyers who copped-to-flip were also sadly mistaken about the current state of the UB market.

Pairs have resold in fairly light volume,  and have been capped at about $50 over Retail, with many sales consummated at just over box price.

As a shoe solidly pegged by its maker at the $200 price point, the Ultra Boost has always left less wiggle room for resellers to profit on top of. Previously,  the overall excitement for Boost ( coupled with  perpetually limited rollouts) saw buyers in the aftermarket cough up the nearly $300 and up for pairs.

As buyers have become well accustomed to Boost in a growing array of silos, however, they are ,predictably, growing a bit bored with similar takes on well- trodden concepts like ‘ All White’. As such , the willingness to easily part with $300 or more for rehashes has waned precipitously.

Is the UB getting played out?

Pure Boost

We hope not; the UB is a very dope shoe that it is – one must  remember,  an actual performance runner in addition to a lifestyle staple. Maybe some day the shoe might be on the feet of a Marathon winner – who knows?

What we do know is that the Pure Boost is solidly to the left of relevant to buyers , who are mostly happy to relegate the silhouette to the growing scrap yard of Boost silos.

NMD R2

The White/Gray duo of NMD R2 Primeknits from Wings and Horns have both been capped at not a penny more than $70 over retail in fairly low volume , before seeing interest decline and prices follow suit.

Campus

If an NMD R2 could be met with such lethargy in the aftermarketmarket, why wouldn’t a non-Boost shoe?

the Campus half of the collaboration are readily available here.

XR1

As are these……Here.

EQT Support

The established buying pattern with the EQT packs have been as such:

93/17

Outside of Yeezy buyers , those who picked up the 93/17 EQT Support Boost are credited with being in possession of the best Adidas flipper of the weekend.

That being said, Resale prices have nevertheless been capped at about $60 over retail,  and volume has been moderate.

Yeezy Boost 350 V2

On Saturday the 29th,  Adidas dropped its third Yeezy 350 V2 of the year. The added significance of this  appears to be that it’s  was the most widely-released colorway to date,  according to StockX.

The shoe is already the best-selling shoe of the past year, surpassing the venerable Flu Game 12 from  late may 2016 despite being just one month in the market.

Equally significant has beem the consistency of the prices in the aftermarketmarket: pairs fetching at least double retail , with those at the ‘ high end’ capped at $500.

Infant V2

As for the baby shoe version of the White V2 , well , few have seen fit to part with more than $50 over MSRP for shoes designed for feet most parents are contents to leave bare or just socked when feasible.

After all, baby J’s can be had for less than half the $140  for these so……..

Nike

First things first:

Sock Racer

Every single colorway of this style are right here.

Converse All-Star Flyknit

WMNS;

Still available

 

Uptempo

Comb14052017025444

Supreme x Nike; think this capsule sold out within minutes?

Stupid question, I know.

Anyway, The Aftermarket for the classic Red/White pair plus the Gold have done the largest volume, compared to the too subdued Triple Black colorway. After all, if one is wearing Supreme,  it absolutely clear to others that Supreme is being worn – represent!

Prices for all three pairs however have been capped at $400 , double retail essentially.

Air Shake NDESTRUKT

Comb14052017030807.jpg

Dennis Rodman’s signature shoe in three colorways has mostly disappeared from shelves.

Nike can still sell people anything with even the slightest chance of being limited….

Screenshot_2017-05-14-18-18-00-1.png

….even if  pairs sold in the aftermarket aren’t worth a premium over the box price, and will soon be available for less than retail.

C’est la vie.

Jordan

Retro 7

XXX1

Likely NBA MVP Russell Westbrook’s comemorative shoe sold out, and has been  capped at $300 for what is an otherwise forgettable silhouette and colorway, rightly or wrongly.
