The official release date for the Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘Satin Snake’ was August 6, 2020 but with COVID going on some stores are not getting the sneakers before the release date. So what ends up happening now is that some retail store essentially have different release dates.
That leads to a really interesting situation where sneakerheads can test out the resale market before they decide to buy.
For the ‘Satin Snake’ in particular, the average sale price on StockX is $290 as of August 18, 2020. Which means you can lock in a $90 profit at least if you’re able to snag a pair of these sneakers.
One way to get these sneakers is to look for stores that still haven’t release them yet. A store like Shiekh. They are currently holding an online raffle for the ‘Satin Snake’ release. You can also take advantage of their payment plan program so that you don’t have to break the bank to buy these sneakers.
Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘Satin Snake’
Product Name: Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘Satin Snake’ Product SKU: CD0461 601 Release Date: August 6th, 2020 Product Retail Price: $170 Estimated Resell Price: $290 Colorway: Gym Red / White – Black The ‘Satin Snake’ release is just how you’d imagine it to be. A Chicago colorway is apparent but the main different is in the back half of the design. The heel area material is a snake-like material instead of the traditional leather and it is black rather than the red.
One neat little aspect about the ‘Satin Snake’ is that the Nike Swoosh sign is also made of the snake-like material. The ‘Satin Snake’ is a solid design so it should its value relatively well over time.
