Not one, not two, but three colorways?
According to Hypebeast (click the source link) Yeezy is dropping 3 different colorways for Black Friday. Traditionally Black Friday has been reserved for the dopest release of the year for Nike and Nike has killed the market at this time. This year however things are about to change.
The Yeezy has become the king of resale and the NMD has completely disrupted Nike’s control of the casual shoe market. This has led to countless articles on Jordan Brand sitting on shelves. I won’t get into that right now, but from experience Black Friday and Cyber Monday have always equaled a big weekend for Nike and for sneaker lovers. This year is going to be something never witnessed by the community if three pairs of Yeezy Boost 350 V2 drop because this is what is scheduled to also release in November:
The game that adidas and Nike is about to play will either make the sneaker game either explode or it will so thoroughly saturate the market prior to the annual Retro 11 release by Nike that this will be one of the years where resale prices fail to explode on items people are thoroughly expecting to cop. If you consider that a sneaker person will have a shot at at least one of these drops, then what will be the result in the third party market? I’m predicting that highly coveted pairs that have released this year will drop at least 20% on resale ( a good thing) and I’m predicting at least one of the “hottest” releases this year will have the smallest resale value of any “Christmas” release ever (yes I’m hinting at the Space Jam resale value).
In this collection if I were to do a Should You Buy To Flip there are 3 shoes that I think will be average in resale value and surprisingly they are not what you are thinking 😉
Are you looking forward to Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year or is this going to be sneaker overload?
