According to the breakdown in the slide; materials takes up most of the cost with a staggering $10.75. Add in labor ($2.43), overhead ($2.10), and factory profit ($0.97) and you get an estimated production cost of $16.25. Thats a far cry from the $160-$170 price range most Air Jordans retail for now. Makes you think!
The Air Jordan 1 Mid in Black/Gym Red/Metallic Gold is available now at select Jordan accounts including Caliroots for $150. The upper is predominately constructed of a black tumbled leather with metallic gold donning the toe box, swoosh, and ankle collar. Red helps the sneaker pop as it outlines the swoosh, handles the branding, and peaks out from underneath the white midsole. Lastly, a true blue inner lining brings the sneaker together.
The all red "Legends of the Summer" Jordans that were worn during the Jay-Z/Justin Timberlake tour had sneakerheads hopeful that these tonal kicks would someday hit retail. It doesn't seem like they will be released, which means the pairs that were made are that much more exclusive.
The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG "Bred" is one of the most anticipated released of the year, with a scheduled release about 2 months away.
The iconic sneaker is dear to those sneakerheads who appreciate the history of the shoe, which is the exact model Jordan wore. With a release date of December 28th, you can expect a Holiday frenzy from now until then.
We'll keep you posted with any new developments, but for now enjoy the new images, and let us know if you plan on camping out for a pair.
