The Air Jordan 9 Retro ‘Fire Red’ features color-popped accents on the shoe that originally launched in 1993, coinciding with Michael Jordan’s first retirement from the NBA. The historic silhouette utilizes a stitched white leather upper with grey patent leather overlays and crimson molded eyelets.
Additional hits of red make their way to the sneaker’s various branding elements, including a Jumpman logo debossed on the midsole and a globe emblem on the heel tab.
Early resell prices are in the mid-300s, but we expect the price to drop after the release of these Jordan sneakers.
Jordan 9 resell has not been historically high, but the white, black, and red colorway has been a staple of Jordan’s for years. Featuring the most popular models such as the 1, 3, and 4, that combination is something that will drive people towards the sneaker, despite its inherent unpopularity.
Where to Buy for Resell
We believe this pair will be resold for around $275.
If you are not able to purchase for retail, definitely check out two of the most trusted reselling sources in the game:
- GOAT: An online app where sellers can list their sneakers for market prices, and buyers can either place bids or accept the seller’s price. Sellers ship their pairs to the GOAT warehouse, where they are authenticated and shipped to the buyers.
- Flight Club: Both a website and physical store(s) where sellers can give their shoes in to be sold in consignment, where Flight Club will take a percentage off of the sale.
With a retail price of $200 and an estimated resell price of $275, you should be able to a little bit of profit, even if just $20. If you sell through sites like GOAT and Flight Club, where people are willing to pay a little more, you may be able to profit more.
