This past week, Luis Sanchez at Sole Collector wrote a nice piece asking which retro we want to see next – a question sneakerheads no doubt ponder often. His personal recommendation was the Jordan XVII. Can’t argue with that. We love a 17 as much as anyone. But let’s see what the data says…
We don’t track too many Jordan’s over 14 yet, but we have six 17’s in Price Guide so far. Here’s what their breakdown looked like on eBay in 2013:
|Sneaker||Avg. DS Price||DS Sold||Used Sold||TOTAL Sold|
For a 12 year old shoe to still have over 100 DS pairs floating around, plus over 400 used pairs still being traded says there are still people looking for and buying the 17s. Plus, at an average price of $372, people are willing to pay for it.
We definitely need to compare these numbers to other possible retro releases to know for sure, but perhaps Luis’s pick is supported by the data.
What do these numbers tell you about whether JB should re-release some 17s?
