6 out of the top-selling Air Jordan sneakers on StockX, are Jordan 1 colorways! And thatâ€™s not the case only in 2020. In 2019, AJ1s were 3 out of the 5 most sold Jordans on the reselling platform.Â So what will happen in 2021 shouldnâ€™t be very different than that. Jordan 1 colorways are always the IT sneakers of every season. But with so many colorways lining up to release in 2021, deciding on a colorway to cop could get overwhelming. But weâ€™re here for ya! With a look back at the numbers and aftermarket value of the best Jordan 1 colorways of 2020, itâ€™ll be super easy for you to know the AJ1s thatâ€™ll reign Supreme this year.
Best-selling Jordan 1 colorways
So if youâ€™re copping to flip, you need to know whatâ€™s selling on the aftermarket, whatâ€™s in-demand, and what wonâ€™t be a waste of money. You need sneakers that wonâ€™t brick and wonâ€™t take up your storage space for a long time. Thatâ€™s why knowing the top-selling Jordan 1 colorways of 2020 should help you avoid Ls and bricks in 2021.
So, according to StockX the best selling AJ1s of 2020 are, for now, the Royal Toe, Court Purple, UNC to Chicago, Pine Green, and the Mochas. The number of pairs sold from these colorways range from 51K to 34.5K. And though these are the 5 most sold Jordan 1s, copping new Jordans that resemble any of the top 8 will be a great quick flip.Â
Two upcoming colorways that come to mind when we speak of resemblance are the AJ1 Silver toe and the Mocha alternative, the Air Jordan 1 Light army. You can cop them on February 12th and March 10th, respectively. And if those 2 versions were as successful as 2020 AJ1s, youâ€™ll get your capital and some good profit back in NO TIME! As with any investment, sneaker reselling should pay you back. And the sooner the better. Therefore, copping highly-demanded sneakers is a SAFE and SMART strategy that guarantees you donâ€™t run out of cash.
Most profitable AJ1s
Obviously, not everyone is here for that quick $100 profit. Some of us are dead serious about this sneaker business, anything less than a couple grands a month is just not enough. 2020 brought us some really cool and valuable Air Jordan 1 colorways, cashing in instant $1K+ per pair. But these sneakers arenâ€™t always easy to cop. Most of them are limited, with exclusive packaging, and some were even Friends and Family pairs. Topping off the list of the most profitable AJ1s, is the AJ1 New Beginnings.
These kicks brought in the big cash to their successful coppers last year, making a big fat 1785%+ profit over the retail price. Coming in second is the pack version of the New Beginnings retailing at $350, and flipping for $1,600+. And though the history of this pack cannot be replicated, the colorway is not a rare find. Actually, a similar colorway will be released this year, featuring one of Jumpmanâ€™s BEST collaborations with Trophy Room. The upcoming AJ1 Trophy Room â€śChicagoâ€ť is currently selling for an average of $4000+. So, you can tell itâ€™s gonna be a bloody day when it drops.
The Talk of The Town!
The same way the Mochas, Court purple, and Royal Toes got a LOT of attention in 2020, some new Air Jordan 1 colorways are making it to the front pages real early in 2021. So, ahead of any hype release, the community talks. Like really talks. You’d see images of the shoe everywhere. Discord cook groups would be buzzing about this drop like it’s the last sneaker to ever release. These kicks are easy to find. They’re not by any means LOW KEY, and the early sales on reselling platforms can tell you a lot about them.
So what about 2021?
Starting as basketball sneakers, the AJ silhouette soon became a lifestyle mark through the 2 past decades. And today, the AJ High heritage stands out of the 2021 sneaker crowd. IT captures the attention of shoe collectors, sneakerheads, and hypebeasts all together with dope colorways. High-top sneakers are in fact one of the best footwear trends in 2021. Hence, AJ1 Highs are an incredible 2021 option to cop. Take a look at the Air Jordan 1 colorways that we think are worth copping this year.Â
