Jordan Brand’s “Sport Blue” collection hit retailers earlier this year. The collection included the Air Jordan 3, 14, and most importantly the Air Jordan 6. Speculated to be one of the more popular drops out of the collection, the Air Jordan 6 “Sport Blue” is a clean rendition of the classic silhouette. After first releasing in 91′ the sneaker was expected to be a very popular release bringing back an OG design.
Dressed up in an all white leather upper, sport blue hits throughout give the sneaker life as black on the tongue and heel contrast the look. The sneaker is finished off with an icy blue sole. With all the hype and expectation of the sneaker surrounding the release, ShoeFAX takes a look at exactly how the sneaker did after releasing. Taking a look at both Kixify and eBay listings, the sales analysis by ShoeFAX is the most accurate to date.
With a retail price of $170, the Air Jordan 6 “Sport Blue” had plenty of room for success. With all the hype the sneaker brought to collectors everywhere, the sneaker initially resold at a price of $400! This huge price jump gave resellers hope that all their pairs would sell for that much. Unfortunately, the sneaker ended up seeing it’s fair share of restocks over the months which created an inevitable drop in resell price. After being more than double its retail price in May, the sneaker now only sells for an average price of $192.17.
