I’m kind of liking the process of talking about how I used to check and see if a shoe was worth flipping. Now that I’ve been out of the Jordan flip game for a minute (still selling, but not like that), I can use my method to help others make a decision. As always it is your decision to try to make a couple of bucks on the shoe, but don’t say I didn’t give you a heads up either way.

First check: I hit Flight Club first and foremost to see if they have the joints early. Today is 8/15/2016 and FC already has a full size run available. When I peep FC I automatically drop my prices by 50 dollars and I use that as my baseline. FC will always get max money on kicks, I (or in this instance you) won’t. Today’s rate on FC = 300.00

Second check: I then go to eBay and use the Sold Listings feature to check what early pairs are selling for. Right now the first few pairs that have sold over the last couple of days is 219, 250, 239 do the average math and take 708/3 and I get a total of 236.00.

Third check: Peep the Twitter feed to see what’s popping and a lot of people are talking Pre-Order… this means that there are going to be a lot of pairs available GR. If the local stores are getting 24 or more, they will be in abundance.

Should you buy to flip?

As always if you got the hook up and they were below retail, why not? If you are paying retail at 190 + tax, which is 205 -210, then you add in Paypal fees of 3% (ebay add 10%, Amazon add 15%) and the average selling price early is 236.00 I would advise you to keep that money and go to the movies. But I’ve been wrong before, just not lately.
