The Air Jordan 6 “UNC”….

…from NiceKicks….

Air Jordan 6 "UNC"

Michael Jordan’s first championship shoe, the 1991-released Air Jordan 6, has an extremely busy month ahead. There are, of course, the two “Like Mike” styles in White/Orange and green suede due out in December – the latter of which is considered the greater of the duo in terms of hype. Yet for many others, it’s the Air Jordan 6 that lightly honors MJ’s time at Chapel Hill that stands as the must-have release of the holiday season.

The Air Jordan 6 “UNC,” or more properly titled Black/University Blue, is a throwback edition of the Air Jordan 6. It is to the “Infrared” what the “Like Mike” in White/Orange is to the “Carmine.” Lush noir construction is perfectly offset by sky blue accents while a partially translucent sole unit captivates below.

Take an official look at the “UNC” 6s below and let us know if you plan to grab this must-have drop on December 2 via Nike SNKRS….

New Air Jordan 10 Coming…..

…from Nice Kicks…

Air Jordan 10 Black Fierce Purple

The Air Jordan 10 City Pack will begin to take shape as the year progresses. But is this new Air Jordan 10 a part of the famed gathering? Well, it’s not likely considering all signs point towards its influence spanning outside the states.

Executed in black and purple with patterning throughout, the “75” embroidery at the collar likely indicates Parisian influence. The city’s center is known as the Paris 75 and there’s also the fact the shoe is showing up on the Foot Locker Europe site and no others at this point.

The Jordan Release Date for this Air Jordan 10 is scheduled for April 9. Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more details as they emerge….

Sneakers = BIG Money in the re-sale market…

Sneakerhead’s buy and sell their wares for mark-ups of more that 3 to 10 times depending on the sneakers/kicks…..

It’s  BIG market out there and FiveTHirtyEight takes a look at it……

The markup can be astonishing. The average eBay price of the LeBron 10 What the MVP sneaker? $2,086. The Nike Air MAG Back to the Future? $5,718. How about the Air Yeezy 2 Red October, designed by Kanye West and released by Nike this year for $250 retail? It sold on eBay for an average price of $2,958, with almost two dozen people paying at least $8,000, Luber said.1

SNEAKERS_CHART1_HORIZONTAL

[josh] Luber — a fanatical sneaker collector himself, with 178 pairs on display in his home — says eBay’s sneaker business totaled $338 million in the last year, up 31 percent from the year before. Sneakers, he says, have become “boxes of cash” for many people. As soon as Foot Lockers across the country open each Saturday, thousands of pairs are on eBay.

None of this happens, of course, without the complicity of Nike, which is on track to hit $30 billion in sales this year. By inventing the concept of a limited sneaker, the company helped spawn a secondary market that puts money in the pockets of Ince and other investors.

It’s puzzling behavior for a money-making behemoth. So lately Luber has been fixated on a complicated question: Is Nike leaving money on the table — and giving up profits to the secondary market — by limiting the supply of certain lines of its sneakers? And if so, why?
