We’re happy to see that sneaker blogs are starting to take notice of our work. In addition to recent articles on Nice Kicks, Complex and Midwest Sole, we’ve started a weekly series with SneakerWatch where every Friday they will feature some Campless data. When we can, we’ll follow up the next week with a link and talk a little more about the data.
This past Friday SneakerWatch posted “Sneakerhead Knowledge: Air Jordan Future Resell Data“. For this inaugural piece we ran brand new data (not even in the Price Guide yet) for the release weekend sales of the highly controversial, very limited, Futures.
There are three very interesting data points here:
- The “High Price” was $1,050. Whoa! For that price you can buy two pair of Bred 11s, three Roshe Runs and make yourself two sets of Futures.
- The “Pre-Order %” was 46%. This means that of the 188 pairs sold through the Monday following the release, 86 pairs were actually a pre-sale.
- A “Volatility %” of 28% is quite high for a new release. Usually we see volatility less than 15% for the first few months following release. Perhaps because the Futures were so limited and there is such wide opinion about them that people weren’t quite sure what to pay.
If you need a refresher on what these stats mean, you can always revisit “Math Class: Sneakerhead Statistics Defined“.
What do you think? Are Jordan Futures worth an average price of $503. Will this price go up or down in the coming months?
