The resale market is up in flames with heated sneaks dropping one after one this year. For Q1 we’ve seen a decent amount of heat drop and hit the resale market. And if you’re looking for some Yeezys on this list, we’re afraid to say there ain’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, here’s a countdown of the 10 most heated sneaks to sell on the resale market from lowest to highest net profit.
#10 Atmos x Nike Air Max 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 “PS2”
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 Levi’s x Air Jordan 1
Moving on to more heat, next is the Levi’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 Home numbered down pair 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 easy 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 making 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 the fact that Sir Virgil Abloh is behind the design makes it a complete catch. Copping just one Air Jordan 1 Off-White could have made you around $1,410.
