JORDAN RETAILERS ARE GETTING READY TO JACK UP PRICES ON YOU
Prepare yourselves, sneaker
heads. The $160 price for most of The Jordan Retro releases are going up in price. Updates to the Air Jordan 10 Retro,
Air Jordan 6 Retro, and Air Jordan 3 Retro silhouettes are on the docket for
the first quarter of 2014 with a $170 price point planned for North America.
It's the first such hike for Jordan Brand's general releases since late 2011
when pricing shifted from $150 to $160 with the “Graphite” Air Jordan 14 Retro.While another $10 boost is sure to incite all types of libel and slander within the rabid sneaker community, it is
important to keep tempers within perspective. Reasons for price hikes in footwear
vary in accordance with a bevy of factors, including soaring costs in
materials—and synthetics (plastic cost is up! Also shipping from the manufactorer to your house is up
Don't trip though becasue $170 is nothing compared to what most spend with "plug hookups" successful RSVPs, raffles, and Saturday morning
and resales. SO how much is MJ generating a year on retro releases???? $13 billion annually in the United States retail market, according to Matt Powell at SportsOneSource.
Are you going to pay the $10 difference? Do you care on paying for it? Will resellers see this as an opportunity to jack prices up even higher?
