Recently, a myriad of Air Jordan colorways wound up under scrutiny in order to determine their resale value. Colorways of Air Jordan models from the Air Jordan 3 to 14 were analyzed. A percentage was assigned to each color that could be spotted in the colorways of the sneakers and that specific color’s resale value was determined accordingly. For instance, the “Black/Cement” colorway of the Air Jordan 3 includes the colors black, cement grey, varsity red and white. Based on the allocation, 40% each was assigned to the black and cement grey colors and 10% each was assigned to the varsity red and white colors.
