december 2018 shoe release date jordan yeezy money

December 2018, the last month of the year. After an action-packed November, we are excited because December is going to be equally as full of hyped and profitable limited shoe releases!

Check out our newly published January 2019’s shoe releases here if you are reading this in 2019 and are itching to cash in this month.

Get pumped about the plenty of shoes which will flip with prices for reselling that will be sky-high as we come up to Christmas and 2018’s Holiday Season!

There’s no shortage of shoe releases that anyone willing to can make money from, as the billion dollar market is growing each year with no signs of stopping. 

This month, we see a return from the dead for Yeezy’s that this month are actually hot again,  a few legendary releases from Nike, and much more. Here’s a tip: try to pick up big sizes (12+) in each of these releases for max profit!

Without further ado, here is the list of the most profitable shoes for the month of December. Make sure to bookmark it and subscribe to our email list to get notification of when the list is updated and when we post new ones like this every month:

1. Nike PG 2.5 Playstation Wolf Grey + Air Force 1 Low

Release date: Saturday December1st/ Thursday  December 6th  2018

Retail: $110 – $200

Peak Resell: $210 – $400

Potential Profit: $100 – $200

The first release of this jam packed month is a playful one.

Playstation and Nike have collaborated before on a very exclusive version of their  PG 2 shoe model in a navy colourway which went for nearly $1000 at its peak, 10x its retail price (here’s data from StockX about the shoe).

Sneakerheads and gamers are two huge communities on the internet and in real life, and a collaboration between one of the biggest sneaker companies and one of the biggest gaming companies is sure to make waves!

2. Nike SB Dunk Low Pro “Purple Lobster” x Concepts

Release Date: Friday,  December 14th2018 

Retail – $130

Peak Resell – $400

Potential Profit – $270


Purple Lobster for Christmas, anyone? Sneakerheads across the world are asking their confused parents for this.

SBs aren’t always hot, but when they are, they can be amazing flips.

This purple hue contrasted with white for the Nike SB Low Pro is gonna be a hot one, thanks to the partnership with streetwear brand Concepts. The profit will be triple at peak resale, so cash in while it’s good!


3. OFF-WHITE x Nike Zoom Fly in Cone/Black

Release Date: Friday,  December 14th2018 

Retail – $170

Peak Resell – $370

Potential Profit – $200

Off-White and Nike continue their insanely profitable “The Ten” Collaboration with the Zoom Fly in the black colourway.

The Tulip Pink version has already been released worldwide, but the black color has only been released in Europe and Asia at the moment,  making them more valuable.

Make sure to enter the SNKRS draw (here are some pro tips about winning SNKRS) for these on 14th December, and go for size 11+.

The profit margins on this color are looking much higher than the previous Pink colourway.

Members of the SFSH private discord group will be getting cheap/free slots for these sneakers, and the slots will be ran on Cyber AIO (market value $3000), the king of all bots!

Slots will also be ran on Project Destroyer and EVE AIO.

4. Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro High Chicago Crystal

Release Date: Friday,  December 14th2018 

Retail: $160

Peak Resell: $400

Potential Profit: $240

Here’s a true classic: the Jordan 1 in a color reminiscent of the original Chicago version of the Jordan 1.

This year has been very successful for Jordan 1s, with nearly all releases guaranteed to resell for higher than the retail price, with many pairs selling at 3 times their original price for over $300 in profit.

This Chicago Crystal version of the Air Jordan 1 is sure to be a hit among the OG sneakerheads, who want a break from the Yeezy’s and Off White’s of the world. For these kicks, go for size 8-9.5US, as those sizes are expected to fetch the highest profit!

5. Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Semi Frozen Yellow

Release Date: Friday,  December 14th2018 

Retail: $220

Peak Resell: $400

Potential Profit: $180

‘Ye has been restocking everything this year it seems, with the Yeezy 350 Creams, 700 Wave Runners and 350 Zebras all restocked already.

The last restock of the year is the polarising yellow colourway of the 350 v2.

Hypebeasts who missed out on the first release will definitely want these, as they are currently the most exclusive v2, and even though this will change with this restock, they will still remain profitable.

This is only the first of all the Yeezy releases this month, so stay reading to find out the rest–nothing like them has been seen before!

6. Nike Air Fear of God 1

Release Date: Saturday,  December 15th2018 

Retail: $395

Peak Resell: $1400

Potential Profit: $1005

Jerry Lorenzo and Fear of God are collaborating for the first time with Nike, coming out with their own, new futuristic silhouette. These boot-styled sneakers are releasing in black and an off white ‘bone’ colourway. Demand for these is extremely high, with some bids on StockX reaching around $1500 at the moment. Make sure to save up some of that gift money for these!

7. OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Force 1 Volt and Black

Release Date: Wednesday,  December 19th2018 

Retail: $170

Peak Resell: $700

Potential Profit: $530

Off White conclude their ‘The Ten’ collection with a bang. One of the most popular original silhouettes of the ten was the Air Force 1, and these two colors of Black and Volt are definitely going to be in very high demand.

Make sure to enter any raffles you can for these, as they will be extremely hard to get, but the reward will be worth it (more than $500 in this case).

Of course, members of the private discord will be receiving slots for these sneakers, which will greatly increase their chances of copping!

8. Yeezy Boost 350 v2 Static

Release Date: Friday,  December 21st 2018 

Retail: $220

Peak Resell: $800

Potential Profit: $580

Potentially the last ever 350 v2 and arguably the most hyped 350 v2 since the original Beluga, the translucent Static colourway will be a neck-breaker for sure. Even sneakerheads that hate most Yeezys agree that this colourway is one of the best they’ve ever seen.

Personally, if I cop, I will be keeping them as they are fire! Depending on how limited they are, I would predict resell to be from $500 to even over $1000.

9. Yeezy Boost 700 Wave Runner V2 Static

Release Date: Saturday,  December 29th2018 

Retail: $300

Peak Resell: $750

Potential Profit: $450

Kanye West has pulled out all the stops for December (He must want to get Kim a nice Christmas present!). The third and final Yeezy release of this month will be the 700 in a new V2 model.

This is by far the cleanest colourway of the previous 3 Wave Runners that have been released, and will definitely be profitable. Hopefully we still have enough money to cop when these finally release, as December truly is a packed month !

This month of December 2018, with an investment of $1945 (if you acquire every shoe release), you would be able to sell the 9 pairs for a total of around $4125, which would be around $2180 in pure profit–and that’s only if you get one pair. 

Experts get multiple pairs, which is one of the secrets to having a six figure shoe business.

Make sure to stay woke this month in case of any shock drops, and save up all your money so you can cop all of this heat! We will update this article as necessary and send notification to subscribers to our email list below.
