Is the Air Jordan reselling market dead? No it’s not and from what we can see, it will never die. However it does appear that it has taken a dive. There could be many reasons for this like the increase in the retail price to $190 or even Jordan Brand producing more pairs.
According to StockX, for the first time in a while, the resell market took a dive in 2015. We have all walked into stores and seen the retro releases that are just sitting on shelfs which we would not have seen in previous years. 2016 has shown some signs of light, but it’s on particular releases and as a whole, looks to be declining.
Take into consideration this doesn’t mean that Jordan Brand isn’t thriving, because surely they are, but it’s the aftermarket that has taken a hit. Below are some images that will break everything down. Let us know what you think of the current state of the Air Jordan resell game.
