Let’s get started!
History of Air Jordan 1 High Dior
You may be well aware of the Air Jordan brand my sneaker-head readers. However, you may be interested in a bit of a history lesson about Dior. It all started in 1947. When Christian Dior started a fashion house that became a global fashion symbol. After Dior entered the sneaker market, everyone knew where this was going.
Incredibly expensive sneakers started releasing pair after pair for price tags of over $1000! That Dior name is heavy however people that can afford it still buy them. This is the first time the basketball shoe brand and the French couture house have collaborated and we have to say, it’s a special one.
Even though history shows that these pairs don’t particularly do well on the resale market. We’re very interested in the Air Jordan 1 High x Dior. It not only has a designer name but the Jordan hype as well. This is definitely one of the biggest collaborations of the year. Dior sneakers alone, however, don’t do that well on the resale market. Let’s look at a few pairs.
Dior B23 High Top Oblique
- Retail Price: $1,100
- Peak Resell: $1,832
- COLORWAY: White
This could have earned you a potential profit of $732 and that was mostly before release. After the pair dropped the resale value fell and re-sellers started suffering losses. The trade range on this today is between $354-$686 which is pretty bad considering the price. The average price is $902 which is an average loss of $198! That’s a negative price premium of almost 53%. Let’s move on.
Dior B23 High Top Logo Oblique
- Retail Price: $1,100
- Peak Resell: $1,891
- COLORWAY: Oblique/Logo
These are doing just as bad guys. I suppose designer brands often don’t do too well in the sneaker market. Even though these things are a beauty, they probably weren’t meant to be good re-selling shoes. Probably has to do with ease of access as you can still buy these today for retail. Sales are also highly volatile so an accurate assessment is difficult.
The trade range is between $652-$1,074 and the average price is only $990. That’s not at all good for re-sellers unless you managed to cop one before the release date. The potential profit though was high at $791, very few have managed to score it. It’s not looking good so far. However, are we looking in the right place? Let’s see how similar Air Jordan high colorways do on the market and maybe we’ll get a more accurate representation.
Jordan 1 Retro High Off White White (GS)
- Retail Price: $150
- Peak Resell: $2,837
- Release Date: 03/03/2018
- COLORWAY: White/White
On the other side of the spectrum, we have the Jordan Retro High Off-White (GS). These are basically gold and may have earned thousands of dollars in profit for anyone who was lucky enough to copy them. Not only was this shoe hard to find because of the hype but being initially a European release made it even more precious.
According to StockX, the trade range is between $2,336-$3,244 with a $1,689 average price. That’s incredible if you ask me. Imagine a 1760% price premium! If you had sold these at peak value, they would have earned you $2,687 in pure profits. The average profit is $1,539 and the pattern shows that this keeps on rising!
Air Jordan 1 High FlyLeather
- Peak Resell: $4000 or More
- Release Date: 09/30/2017
- COLORWAY: White/Rose-Gold
Flyleather is Nike’s new technology that contributes to a lesser carbon footprint and all that good stuff. However, coming to the important stuff. The resale value. Well, only about 50 pairs were released world-wide so obviously this sells for thousands. The limited quantity as well as the new technology gives it a higher value. Even though the Jordan x Dior isn’t as limited, this may give us a good idea.
Nike Air Jordan 1 High x Dior
- Retail Price: $2000
- Peak Resell: N/A
- Release Date: 07/01/2020
- COLORWAY: Wolf Grey
Made with the highest quality Italian leather, this may just be the sneaker of the year for many. With only 8,500 sneakers being made, these are sure to grab the attention of all sneaker-heads. This was aggressively teased at the fashion weak through celebrities such as Travis Scott. The pair features a grey and white leather upper with the signature monogram swoosh.
The sole features the Co-Branding of Nike and Dior with a translucent material that looks pretty cool. The tongue has the Dior and Nike air Logo on it as well in a grey-white color tone. The pair also features laces with Dior branding on the aglets at the end of the laces. Finally, there’s also an Air/Dior silver hand tag to embezzle the overall design.
Honestly, guys, this thing is a bold fashion statement that may even justify the price tag for some.
How to Cop
You may be asking yourself, I’ve got an extra $2000 to blow but on what? Well, look no further, the Air Jordan High Dior is set to drop on the 1st of July. How to get it? Well, that part is tricky. They will be launching 2 lotteries for the high and the low top in LA and New York.
If you enter the first lottery and win you get the right to purchase the high top. That or you have the right to access the RTW/ACC POP-UP and get a boarding pass. In the second lottery, you get a chance to get access to the low tops in the same manner. The lottery opens on March 23rd and 24th. March 26th, the emails go out about who wins or loses. If you fail to cop, you can find them on Stock X and GOAT.
If you manage to get your hands on one of these, you are one lucky individual. Even though Dior sneakers alone don’t resale well, Air Jordan ones of this quality do. The resale is estimated to be around $12,000 to potentially even further beyond. About the price of a decent car! StockX won’t show much information however, from January the sales were as below.
That’s almost $8,000 in pure profit!
To summarize, the Air Jordan 1 x Dior High and Low release date is on the 1st of July for $2000. They will also be sold via a lottery system that opens on March 23rd and 24th In New York, the pop-up will be from April 16th to 23rd, and in LA from May 1st to 8th. If you fail to cop there’s always StockX and GOAT, however that’s going to cost you. A lot.
If the rumors are true about only 8500 pairs being produced. The potential profits can be anywhere from $8000 to much more! Well, that’s all for this one folks! My personal sneaker of the year so far. I encourage you again to sign up for our news-letter below to never miss out!
