EARLY LOOK! 30-Day Price Forecast: Is Now the Time to Buy the Jordan 1 Low Trophy Room?

Jordan 1 Low Trophy Room Away

We’re nearing the in-app debut of our time series forecast model, which provides you with sneaker price insights 30 days into the future! 🔮 It’s the first of its kind, delivering a comprehensive price forecast that empowers you to buy the sneakers you want at the right time and price!

Here’s how we’re using it to shop smarter. After yesterday’s highly anticipated release of the Jordan 1 Low Trophy Room Away (FN0432-100) left a trail of L’s, 😩 we looked at our forecast model to help us answer this question: Is now the right time to buy? 🤔

According to our model, prices will drop week-over-week in the next 30 days. A fair price (at the SKU-level) at the end of this period should be in the $350-$375 range. With a current Arbit Value of $476, if you’re willing to wait a few weeks, you’ll likely save $100! 🤑

More sneaker price forecasts are coming to the Arbit app! Download Arbit today (iOS/Android) to make sure you don’t miss out on the in-app debut! 🚀

Arbit Sneaker Market Index (ASMI)

Average sneaker resell prices have been on a rollercoaster over the last month. Based on past trends, prices are likely to decline before picking back up in early Fall for back-to-school. We’ll monitor prices and flag any unexpected spikes.

Part 1. Look Up the Sneaker’s Fair Market Value, Then Compare to Live Prices

In order to buy sneakers for a fair price, it’s important to know what a “fair price” even is. Arbit’s algorithms answer that question. Our AI-generated fair market values are supported by a historical sales database going back over 11 years. We generate values for over 20,000 sneaker SKUs, with more added every day. So how does someone use our values to help them find a “fair price”?

First, open our app (iOS/Android), and search for the sneaker by name or SKU.

Quick Search by Sneaker Name or SKU

Then, select your shoe from the search results to reveal the Arbit Fair Market Value (what that sneaker is currently worth on the market) and 30-Day Price Forecast (whether the price is likely to go down, go up, or stay the same) for that sneaker. You can also find these insights for specific sizes by selecting a size in the dropdown.

AI-Driven Price Insights

Finally, compare the Arbit Fair Market Value and 30-Day Price Forecast with real-time prices in trusted marketplaces. Prices in green are FAIR. If you like a price, click on the marketplace directly from our app to purchase.

Don’t see a fair price? Use our insights to negotiate a lower price in the marketplace.

Live Prices on Trusted Marketplaces

Arbit is the only app that lets you pair fair market values with live prices to make sure you get a FAIR PRICE for your sneakers. 🤝

What’s up guys?! The release of the Jordan 4 Retro Bred Reimagined ended up being more chaotic than we expected. Several retailers cancelled orders, leaving a trail of frustrated buyers and an increase in resell prices. There’s hope that a small restock will happen soon, but even with that, we expect prices will stay relatively the same in the near-term and rise over the long term.

Should You Buy the Nike Book 1 Mirage for Resell?

Nike Book 1 Mirage (Translucent Outsole)

The Nike Book 1 Mirage (Translucent Midsole) (FJ4249-100) has been a solid performer post-drop. It’s top 5 for price premium (41%; % by which resell price exceeds retail price) out of all recent releases. Its neutral colorway and casual styling makes it more wearable than a typical basketball shoe. Despite the solid numbers and versatility, our algorithm thinks the price is more likely to fall (75%) than rise (25%) in the short-term.

Was Our Bred 4 Prediction Right?

February 9, 2024

We Predicted a Price Drop—Were We Right?

Jordan 4 Retro Bred Reimagined

As our algorithm predicted last week (74% probability), prices of the Jordan 4 Retro Bred Reimagined (FV5029-006) have dropped. Prices have steadily fallen since the first pairs hit the secondary market in January and continue to decline as more supply becomes available.

Inverse Relationship Between Sale Count and Price of the Jordan 4 Retro Bred Reimagined

Our algorithm’s latest 30-day price forecast gives the same 74% probability of a price decrease, meaning we haven’t yet reached the bottom. This makes sense with the official release (and many more available pairs) coming on February 17th. Jordan is rumored to be releasing 500,000 pairs. Fair prices now range from $300-$380, depending on size.

Market Analysis: How The Market Reacts to A Shock Drop

We looked at sales data within 24 hours of the “surprise” early release of the Jordan 4 Retro Bred Reimagined (FV5029-006). These teaser drops, which happen several days before the official release, are typical of Nike and Jordan for highly-anticipated pairs. We wanted to see how the market responds to the increase in buzz and supply and to the failure of some buyers to get one of these limited pairs.

Fluctuations in Average Sale Price around Shock Drop for Jordan 4 Retro Bred Reimagined

In short, we saw no significant price movement within this short window, only more pairs being sold. We’ll be monitoring the sales activity between the February 6th shock drop and February 17th release. We will also continue to analyze the impact of shock drops with other highly-anticipated pairs.

Jordan 4 Retro Bred Reimagined

The Jordan 4 Retro Bred Reimagined (FV5029-006) is officially releasing on February 17th, with a shock drop widely expected on the SNKRS app between now and then. Our algorithm gives the prices a 74% chance of decreasing over the next 30 days, which makes sense with the upcoming increase in available pairs.

ARBITrage: 🗣 Buy the Jordan 5 Retro A Ma Maniere Dusk (FD1330-001)

Jordan 5 Retro A Ma Maniere Dusk

Prices trending down does NOT mean that there’s no opportunity for buyer deals and seller profit! Our algorithm is bullish on the fair market price of the Jordan 5 Retro A Ma Maniere Dusk (FD1330-001), and sellers have yet to catch up. Sizes 9 (Arbit value $373, eBay $290), 9.5 (Arbit value $356, StockX $310) and 10 (Arbit value $448, StockX $339) are priced well below our algorithm’s values. We’re also predicting a near term decline in prices.

What is the Most Profitable Strategy for Reselling Sneakers?

January 26, 2024

What’s up guys?! Arbit is short for “arbitrage.” As in finding inefficiencies in the sneaker resell market and turning them into deals and profits for YOU. An arbitrage opportunity we’ve been exploring lately is buying and selling across different marketplaces. Check out our analysis below, and use our insights TODAY on our app (Download Arbit for iOS/Android)! 🤑

Arbitrage Price Prediction Challenge 💡

But first! It’s time for another price prediction challenge. See if your intuition matches our algorithm’s prediction…

Jordan 2 Retro OG Chicago (2022)
Market Analysis: What is the Most Profitable Strategy for Reselling Sneakers?

In today’s market, sneakers are no longer a virtual lock for large price premiums or a significant increase in value over time. Strategy and advanced market analysis tools are more important to profitability than ever before. One strategy we’ve seen success with is what we call Sneaker Marketplace Arbitrage:

  1. Buy for prices at or below the Arbit value and price forecast (Download Arbit for iOS/Android).
  2. Prioritize quick flips (2-4 week sales cycle) or holding until peak sales periods. See When Should You Buy and Sell Sneakers?
  3. For quick flips, sell on StockX. Despite higher fees, StockX boasts higher sales prices. Net revenue is typically better.
  4. For longer term holds, sell on eBay or GOAT/Alias. These marketplaces seem to cater more to collectors. Therefore, they’re more likely to have strong demand for sneakers past the hype.

Below is a breakdown of how fees would impact a $500 sale on each platform. In general, eBay performs the best on fees. However, these fee structures don’t consider reductions that some platforms implement for high volume sellers.

  • eBay - Approx 8% fees. $40 in fees on a $500 sale.
  • GOAT/Alias - 5% transaction fee + 2.9% + $0.30. $44.30 in fees on a $500 sale.
  • Grailed - 9% fees. $45 in fees on a $500 sale.
  • StockX - 9% fees + $4.00. $49 in fees on a $500 sale.

Certainly consider fees when deciding on the platform you sell your sneakers on. However, the most important factors are your buy price and your sell price. Use Sneaker Marketplace Arbitrage to maximize your profitability. Bempah and Coop
