The resale market is up in flames with heated sneaks dropping one after one this year. For Q1 weâ€™ve seen a decent amount of heat drop and hit the resale market. And if youâ€™re looking for some Yeezys on this list, weâ€™re afraid to say there ainâ€™t none. Actually, Nike seems to have the resale market all for itself so far, especially with their collab with Virgil Abloh.
Most Heated Sneaks Countdown
Without further ado, hereâ€™s a countdown of the 10 most heated sneaks to sell on the resale market fromÂ lowest to highest net profit.
#10Â Atmos x Nike Air MaxÂ 1 DLX Animal Pack
The first of these heated sneaks is the wild Nike Air Max 1 in collaboration with Atmos for the second Animal Pack. After returning you the $190 retail price, it can make you $210 on average.
#9 Nike PG2 â€śPS2â€ť
These PlayStation colorway kicks are out of this world. Friends and family who got the full media kit were given a customized PlayStation and an epic backpack. Retailing at $110, they make an average of 300% of that, leaving resellers with $330 of spare change.
#8 Off-White x Nike Air Vapormax – White
It should come as no surprise that a shoe from the Off-White x Nike collab made this list. The white Off-White Nike Air Vapormax with an iced-out sole is making resellers around $350 a flip.
#7 Leviâ€™s x Air Jordan 1
Moving on to more heat,Â next is the Leviâ€™s Jordan Brand collaboration. The denim on denim Air Jordan 1 was a must cop and truly a challenge. Police even shut down the NYC release because of the loud crowd. Retailing for $225, the shoe makes on average $375 of pure profit.
#6 Air Jordan 1 Homage to Home – Numbered
We recently saw the Air Jordan 1 Homage to HomeÂ numbered down pairÂ drop exclusively in Chicago. Location exclusive releases are a pain in the ass because your chances of copping are next to none. There were only 2,300 pairs in the drop. This shoe sold for $160 and its net profit is an average of $540.
#5 Atmos x Nike Air Max 95 DLX Animal Pack
This Pony Black, Classic Green, Sport Red colorway the second shoe from the Animal Pack. Both shoes from the Atmos x Nike collaboration made it to this list. That’s certainly something to remember the next time you read the name Atmos. On average, reselling this shoe has made $700 of pure profit.
#4 Adidas FutureCraft4D White Ash Green
Sneakers could only get their hands on pairs of the Adidas 4D White Ash Green at the event exclusive release during All-Star Weekend 747 Warehouse Event. Although it sold for a whopping $300, excited buyers did not flinch when they had to pay up a grand $1,000 for the shoe on the resale market. The new technology is making resellers an easyÂ 7 Benjamins per pair.
#3 Nike Air Max 1/97 Sean Wotherspoon
It was a great day when Sean Wotherspoon’s concept won the Revolution AIR’s contest on Nike’s Vote Forward. This marriage of the Air Max 1 and 97 comes with unforgettable colorful corduroy upper. It’s making over $800 on average.
#2 Air Jordan 3 Retro Seoul
The Air Jordan 3 Retro Seoul was an extremely limited release that took place exclusively in South Korea. To get the shoe, sneakerheads had to enter a lottery a couple days before the draw. There were 239,00 pairs won, and they sold at around $225. Resellers have been makingÂ 965 USD on average from the resales. Dang.
#1 Off-White x Nike Air Jordan 1
Last but definitely not least, the white Off-White x Nike Air Jordan 1. Hands down, this is the hottest of the 10 heated sneaks. Retailing at $190 like your regular Jordan 1, just theÂ fact that Sir Virgil Abloh is behind the designÂ makes it a complete catch. Copping just one Air Jordan 1 Off-White could have made you around $1,410.
