Air Jordan is still going strong and releasing multiple colorways that are highly anticipated. Thankfully, they’re also giving the more elusive silhouettes some attention! Stick around as we go through the Air Jordan Retro Sneakers Spring collection!

Jordan Brand is known for its retro sneakers that always sell out no matter what silhouette they release them for. Although resale is highly varied, even regular non-collaborations can sell for hundreds over the retail price.

Air Jordan 9 Olive Concord

  • Retail Price: $200
  • Average Resell: $250
  • Release Date: Saturday, January 7th, 2023
  • Style Code: CT8019-034

Air Jordan 9 Black Bright Concord Quarter View

The Air Jordan 9 has been a modest player in Jordan Brand’s yearly collection for the past few years, making it simple to ignore.

The lack of recent eye-catching partnerships and the restriction on vintage releases had an impact on the design’s value. 

However, the shoe continues to hold its place as an unquestionable cornerstone in the Air Jordan line by being coated in stylish hues that are free of any gimmicks or fads.

The soon-to-be-30-year-old sneaker’s “Light Olive” variation updates its basic “Olive” appearance with “Bright Concord” and “Aqua” highlights.

While the top of the shoe is quite similar to that of its predecessor, the logo elements serve as a modification. It has a black leather base, subtle greenish-brown nubuck mudguard, and heel overlays.

The tongue, sock liner, sole, heel logos, and heel tab on the back all have the aforementioned blue and purple elements.

The shoe’s tongue, inside, and laces are all finished in the same shade of black as the sole.

On the secondary market, these sneakers are reselling for $250 per pair. You can get professional help copping these by joining the Winner’s Circle!

Air Jordan 1 High OG True Blue

  • Retail Price: $180
  • Average Resell: $190
  • Release Date: Saturday, January 14th, 2023
  • Style Code: DZ5485-410

The Air Jordan 3 “True Blue,” which was designed by Tinker Hatfield, serves as the inspiration for Jordan Brand’s next retro release, which is inspired by their cherished history.

The basic appearance does borrow parts of the color combinations from the 1988 masterpiece, albeit it is not an exact replica.

When it is applied on the Swooshes, laces, inside liners, ball-and-wings logos, and overlays that sit close to the collar and around the toe boxes, its nominal color does the majority of the hard lifting.

There are no accents with elephant prints. However, “Cement Grey” emphasizes the nubuck ankle flaps and short heels.

Nylon tongues, ventilated toe boxes, collars, and quarter panels then echo the AJ 3’s magnificent uppers. The tongues and insoles include further branding in the shape of Nike Air accents.

The grey touches on the collar patches are the only notable difference between these sneakers and the original Nike Dunk Kentucky sneakers.

Unfortunately, these sneakers were a huge disappointment and barely broke even when it came to profits, even though they have been sold out. The average resale price on StockX is $190 per pair.

Air Jordan 5 Mars For Her

  • Retail Price: $200
  • Average Resell: $190
  • Release Date: Friday, January 15th, 2023
  • Colorway: Picante/Bright Mandarin-Fire Red-Muslin-Black
  • Style Code: DD9336-800
Air Jordan 5 Wmns Mars For Her Quarter View
Air Jordan 5 Wmns Mars For Her Quarter View

Nike officially released the women’s version of the Air Jordan 5 “Mars for Her,” in January, which originally appeared online around the end of November. This release was one of the highlights on Nike’s schedule for January.

The footwear is eye-catching, and thanks to its flaming suede top, it may be mistaken for the Air Jordan 5 “Raging Bull” from a distance.

However, this version employs a “Martian Sunrise” hue that is a bit darker and more suggestive of the planet’s landscape, hence the title.

On the bottom heel are solid black Jump Man insignias, and on the lateral heel are tonal “23” hits that are surrounded by black shadowing.

The spikes on the midsoles below have been adjusted to produce a scorching gradient with a black backdrop.

Even the Air Jordan 5 Raging Bull makes lunch money in profits when resold, indicating that the Air Jordan 5 has not had a stellar resale success for a couple of years.

These are no different and have only been reselling for around $190 or under.

Air Jordan 2 Retro Lucky Green

  • Retail Price: $175
  • Estimated Resell: $250
  • Release Date: Friday, February 3rd, 2023
  • Colorway: White/Lucky Green-Sail-Light Steel Grey
  • Style Code: DR8884-103
Air Jordan 2 Retro Lucky Green Quarter View

Over the last several years, Lucky Green has been a prominent color for Jordan Brand, showing up on classic models of sneakers like the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 13 and more recent iterations like the Air Jordan 1 Low Elevate.

Kelly green is used less often in this version of Michael Jordan’s second signature Air Jordan than it was in earlier ones.

It is used on the heel, collar, and forefoot piping, along with the tongue’s trim and logo, to compliment the white leather that serves as the sneaker’s foundation.

Off-white accents add more style on the heel and midsole, a subtle black gradient fade on the piping noted earlier, and hints of grey on the outsole.

These kicks should be profitable at around $250 per pair yielding over $60 in gross profits.

Air Jordan 4 SE Craft Photon Dust

  • Retail Price: $210
  • Average Resell: $350+
  • Release Date: Saturday, February 11th, 2023
  • Style Code: DV3742-021

One variation that is starting to generate curiosity is the Air Jordan 4 SE Craft “Photon Dust.” Next year, Jordan Brand already has a tonne of inline heat planned for release.

Today, owing to Nike, we can officially have a look at the pair’s official images after the improved version of the Tinker Hatfield-designed classic first surfaced online in November.

Due to the content revisions, this Jump Man product is different from the previous AJ 4 versions we’ve seen.

Buttery suede in the company’s color makes up the tongues, mudguards, extra collar panels, and often netted areas like the midfoot and lower neck.

The eyelets, tongues, and heel counters, where the Jordan emblem is placed, are all decorated in beige. Therefore, beige highlights are also featured. Soft, cuddly fleece material lines the inner sides of the tongues. Outsoles in a dark grey color complete the style.

Due to the current popularity of this style, they will probably sell for a profit, as with most OG and Retro Air Jordan 4s. If you want to sell them, plan on making extremely respectable gross profits of over $100 a pair.

Air Jordan 1 High ’85 Panda

  • Retail Price: $200
  • Estimated Resell: $350+
  • Release Date: Wednesday, February 15th, 2023
  • Style Code: BQ4422-001
Air Jordan 1 High 85 Panda Quarter View
Air Jordan 1 High 85 Panda Quarter View

On the Jordan Brand Air Jordan 1 High ’85 model, the two-toned “Black/White” color scheme, which is considered a fan favorite, makes an official reappearance.

After an early sneak-peak revealed earlier this spring, the panda-like color covers the shape for the first time since 1985.

The hues “Varsity Red,” “Neutral Grey,” and “Georgetown” provide three additional modernized alternatives to the high-top shoe’s timeless ’80s style.

With the addition of white accents to the ventilated toe boxes, medial panels, and ankle regions, the traditional black and white hues are now utilized to highlight the silhouette.

In the premium leather construction, black overlays are placed and touch the profile Swooshes that jut from the tails. In addition to the tonal badges stitched with Nike insignia on the nylon tongues, the outer layer ankle flaps have contrasting Wings logos.

A similar insole type, which is layered over engraved midsoles and black rubber soles, completes the style.

Expect these sneakers to sell for a lot of money on the secondary market since the Jordan 1 High ’85 is perhaps one of the brand’s most popular silhouettes.

Expect gross revenues of $150 or more for each pair.

Air Jordan 1 High Reverse Laney

  • Retail Price: $180
  • Estimated Resell: $300+
  • Release Date: Friday, February 17th, 2023
  • Style Code: FD2596-700
Air Jordan 1 High Reverse Laney Quarter View
Air Jordan 1 High Reverse Laney Quarter View

Jordan Brand has revamped and altered the Air Jordan 1 “Laney” hue for a brand-new though well-known release.

After a comparable version of the Air Jordan 1 was introduced in 2013, the “Laney” is the second iteration. The idea came from Laney High School in Wilmington, North Carolina, where Michael Jordan played high school basketball.

A “Varsity Royal/Varsity Maize-Sail-Fire Red” color scheme is used in this new “Laney,” a women’s colorway, which, in effect, reverses the abovementioned 2013 pair.

The mudguards, eye stays, Swooshes, heels, and collar flaps now have royal blue hits, while the toe boxes, quarter panels, and collars have maize hits.

The Chicago Bull-inspired red and black on the tongue tag and the sky blue and red hangtag that reflects the colors of the Chicago flag have been added by Jordan Brand to set this Air Jordan 1 apart from its college predecessor.

The Nike Dunk Low “UCLA” would have an almost comparable overall design.

Once again, colors like these are popular and lucrative. The reverse Laney made an already fantastic month even better.

You may anticipate gross profits of around $120 per pair or perhaps more depending on how few there are.

Air Jordan 4 Olive Green

  • Retail Price: $210
  • Estimated Resell: $300+
  • Release Date: Thursday, February 9th, 2023
  • Colorway: White/Seafoam-Dark Ash-Neutral Grey
  • Style Code: AQ9129-103
Air Jordan 4 Olive Green Quarter View
Air Jordan 4 Olive Green Quarter View

February will see a number of highly significant launches, including the Air Jordan 4 Seafoam Olive Green.

This new version, which just substitutes the eponymous hue for another, is inspired by the 1989 design’s supple white leathers, black decorations, and neutral grey soles.

It now boasts calming green accents all over the eye stays, midsole, tongue logo, and liners, in stark contrast to the bold black and white in its immediate surrounds.

This release will not have any Nike Air branding, although “Jordan” wordmarks may be used underneath, and Jump Men may be utilized at the heels.

Although nothing is known about these shoes, it is anticipated that they will be quite successful and that they will sell for more than $300 per pair.

Definitely do not sleep on them!

Air Jordan 1 High OG Elephant

  • Retail Price: $180
  • Estimated Resell: $260
  • Release Date: Saturday, February 25th, 2023
  • Colorway: Tech Grey/Muslin-Black-White
  • Style Code: DZ5485-052
Air Jordan 1 High Elephant Quarter View
Air Jordan 1 High Elephant Quarter View

The Nike subsidiary Jordan Brand has been in operation for several years and has created some of the most iconic footwear designs.

It this time combines these two elements for 2023, fusing the everlasting elephant print from the Air Jordan 3 with the everlasting Air Jordan 1 form.

While the white and black “Elephant” colors were released in 2016, this is the first time Jordan Brand has given the Air Jordan 1 High the “White Cement” treatment.

This particular shoe model, which was previously seen in first and close-up views, stands out for its unique blending of a traditional white leather base with grey elephant print overlays.

The shoe’s monochromatic black ensemble is continued by the leather Swooshes, laces, Wings logo, and collar. The “Sail” midsole and grey rubber outsole complete the look.

On February 25, Nike and a few other retailers are likely to offer the Air Jordan 1 High OG “White Cement” for $180 USD.

These shoes will probably fetch a significant premium above their retail price on the secondary market. Expect per-pair gross earnings of around $260.

Air Jordan 5 UNC (2023)

  • Retail Price: $225
  • Average Resell: $350+
  • Release Date: Saturday, March 4th, 2023
  • Colorway: University Blue-Black
  • Style Code: DV1310-401
Air Jordan 5 Unc Quarter View
Air Jordan 5 Unc Quarter View

The Jordan 5 UNC is the third iteration of the pack after the similarly designed “Michigan” and “Oregon” colors from 2019 and 2020, respectively.

Excellent nubuck uppers, unique boxing, and heel patches with an athletic flare are once again to be anticipated.

The nubuck uppers, in this instance, are painted University Blue and are surrounded by tonal mesh, eye stays, laces, and liners. Underfoot, OG Metallic-inspired sole components are atop transparent outsole pods with light blue tints and glittering silver tongues.

This is not the first time UNC has been represented in Jordan Brand’s PE line; the Air Jordan 6 from 2022 was the first Tar Heels-inspired colorway to incorporate the controversial heel patch.

Expect a great resale here as well since UNC colors are classic.

Air Jordan 3 White Cement Reimagined

  • Retail Price: $210
  • Average Resell: $300+
  • Release Date: Saturday, March 11th, 2023
  • Colorway: Summit White/Fire Red/Black/Cement Grey
  • Style Code: DN3707-100
Jordan 3 White Cement Reimagined
Jordan 3 White Cement Reimagined

This next edition takes design cues from Tinker Hatfield’s original Air Jordan 3 “White “Cement” model.

The toe boxes, tongues, and side walls are made of tumbled leather, while the collars are made of perforated leather.

These parts are all designed in “Summit White.” From there, “Cement Grey” is spread to the elephant print overlays on the toe tips and heels, while “Fire Red” accents appear on the forefoot eyelets, interiors of the tongues, and Jumpman logos.

The heel counters on which they sit are adjusted to a light white shade to impart an “aged” appearance akin to the Air Jordan 1 High “Lost & Found,” and “Nike Air” branding references to the original pairs from 1988.

I do expect small profits here as well.
