Nike has been celebrating Air Max’s 30th anniversary with a bang! We’ve seen a bunch of exciting releases such as the Nike Air Max 1 Pink Lemonade and the Nike Air Max 90 OG Infrared.

With no signs of slowing down, we’re also getting a brand new Nike Air Max 1 Spiral Sage. Before we estimate its resale value, let me walk you through some history.

Nike Air Max 1| The OG 

Nike Air Max 1 History Technoloy Kicksfinder


The Nike Air Max 1 was the first of Nike’s Air Max line and is considered one of the most iconic sneakers ever.

Created in 1987 by Tinker Hatfield, The Air Max 1 was a pioneer of the Air Unit that created a legacy of new sneakers that were ahead of their times. Although Air technology was used in Nike sneakers since 1979, Hatfield took it to the next level.

Tinker Hatfield was originally a corporate architect for Nike. When he shifted to designing sneakers, Hatfield thought of the Pompidou Center in Paris which was the main inspiration behind the Air Max 1.

Ever since the Air Max has become a cultural icon that’s used not just for sports but for street fashion. Interestingly, resale for some pairs has also been exceptionally high. To estimate resale for the Nike Air Max 1 “Spiral Sage” let’s head on over to StockX.

Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary Green 2020

Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary Green 2020

Retail Price: $140

Peak Resell: $450

Release Date: 07/30/2020


The Air Max 1 Anniversary Green 2020 features a grey upper with a rich forest green overlay. Grey appears on the rear and side panels while green covers the ‘Swoosh’, sides, and Nike/Air Max logos on the tongue and rear.

The average selling price on StockX is $220 which is an average gross profit of $80 per pair. At peak resale, gross profits are as high as $310 per pair. I believe the Nike Air Max 1 “Spiral Sage” will have a similar resale.

Nike Air Max 1 “Spiral Sage”


Retail price: $150

Estimated Resell: $200

Release Date: November/23/2020


The Nike Air Max 1 Spiral Sage comes dressed in a grey, white, and green color tone. Wolf Grey is featured over the side panels and rear while white covers the toe box, insoles, and tongues as well as the laces that sit on top of the shoe’s white throat.

“Spiral Sage” is featured on the mudguards and Nike ‘Swoosh’ on the lateral sides as well as the Nike/Air Max branding on the tongue and heel tabs. A white midsole and green/black/white outsole complete the design.


Resale Value 

I expect these to sell out and also be slightly profitable for resellers. I suggest going for personal sizes on this one.

Using my estimated resell value of $200, expect gross profits of around $50 per pair. If you can sell now websites such as eBay that offer service fee waivers, profits may even be higher.

Where to Buy| Nike Air Max 1 “Spiral Sage” 

You can buy these kicks at select retailers and on November 23rd. The retail price is set at $150 per pair.

You can also buy them today at reseller websites such as StockX.
