The 25 Most Valuable Released Jordans Of The Last Decade

jordansvaluable

It’s no secret that Jordans are more popular and sought after than ever right now, but which ones released in the last decade are the most valuable? Obvious choices such as models from the Doernbecher Collection and overseas-only releases come to mind instantly, but there’s also a couple limited Jordan XX3s which carry a hefty resale tag too. We looked at completed eBay auctions, Flight Club listings and Campless’ recent price guide to determine estimated value and if you happen to be sitting on any of these releases, you have a nice little insurance policy in your back pocket as long as sneaker popularity stays high. If you had a seemingly endless pile of cash, please let us know if the comments section below which would you cop first?!

Air Jordan V "Shanghai Shen"

Release Year: 2013
Estimated Value: $625
Original Retail: Overseas

Joining the Air Jordan I “XQ” and the V “Tokyo 23″ as Asia-only releases, the Air Jordan V “Shanghai Shen” had Jordan heads scrambling for a Chinese connect when they dropped last year. If you can find them today, a pair of the “Shanghai Shen” Air Jordan Vs will cost you about $625.

Air Jordan III "Doernbecher"

Release Year: 2010
Estimated Value: $625
Original Retail: $160

Jordan Brand has tried several tactics to deflate the resale market that’s popped up over the past decade or so, one of which is re-releases or restocks. And, while it does seem to curb price-gouging of most GRs, the desire for those super-hot limited releases, like the Air Jordan III Doernbecher, burns so bright that even a retro just three years after it’s 2010 release didn’t do much to drive prices down. Nowadays, either release (2010 or 2013) will run you north of $600. A wise person once said “the game is the game, always.”

Air Jordan II "Doernbecher"

Release Year: 2007
Estimated Value: $650
Original Retail: $140

One of the crazier Air Jordan x Doernbecher designs, 2007’s Air Jordan II “Peacock” is a big one with collectors. Sporting a wild green and yellow colorway, these IIs are a beautiful, yet expensive find, typically running about $650 on the resale market.

Air Jordan XIII "Ray Allen PE"

Release Year: 2011
Estimated Value: $675
Original Retail: $175

Ray Allen’s second Player Exclusive to hit retail did so in super-limited fashion in 2011. Dropping at a few shops in Boston and MIA, these bangers were released to help Ray celebrate his breaking of the all-time NBA 3-point record, which he did while wearing them. Today, these XIIIs will run about $675 on the resale market.

Air Jordan I Retro High "XQ"

Release Year: 2013
Estimated Value: $700
Original Retail: Overseas

Another case of an Asia-only release making things tough on stateside sneakerheads is the Air Jordan I “XQ.” The “Ignite Shanghai” Air Jordan I was actually dropped back in 2007, exclusively in Shanghai, and limited to just 240 pairs. The good news was that we got a wider-released retro in 2013. The bad news was that it was still a China-only drop, and getting your hands on them in the US will cost you about $700.

Air Jordan IV Rare Air 'Laser' Black

Release Year: 2005
Estimated Value: $700
Original Retail: $175

The Air Jordan IV “Rare Air” black laser is fantastic. Not only are the details amazing, but the quality used on the 2005 release is fantastic when compared to today’s GRs. Back then, the black laser’s dropped as a Quickstrike, meaning that if you missed out, and you’re looking to cop a pair today, you’re looking at spending about $700. Pricey, but these are quality.

Air Jordan VII "Miro"

Release Year: 2008
Estimated Value: $875
Original Retail: Overseas

We’ve been quite vocal about our love of the Air Jordan VII “Miro” around these parts. And if resale prices are any indication, we’re not the only one who loves this release. The Spain-only drop was definitely a tough one to come up on. So unfortunately, if you missed out on that back in 2008, you’re looking at about $875 to cop these nowadays.

Air Jordan VII Premio "Bin 23"

Release Year: 2010
Estimated Value: $875
Original Retail: $175

The wildest and most polarizing colorway from the Bin 23 collection, the Air Jordan VII Premio is just awesome. And with just 2,059 pairs floating around, these beauties are super limited. Enough that they command around $850-$900 on the resale market.

Air Jordan II Premio "Bin 23"

Release Year: 2010
Estimated Value: $900
Original Retail: $175

With only 1,097 pairs in circulation, the Air Jordan II Premio is one of the most limited releases from the Bin 23 collection. But interestingly, it’s not priced anywhere near most of the others from the series, and we feel that’s due to the lack of love the silhouette gets nowadays. Again, referring to it as “less valuable” is a bit of a misnomer when resale market pegs it at about $900, but nonetheless, we absolutely love the dark brown faux croc II.

Air Jordan XX3 Premier Finale

Release Year: 2008
Estimated Value: $900
Original Retail: $230

Interestingly, despite being even more limited than their “Titanium” brethren, the Air Jordan XX3 “Finale” actually commands slightly less on the resale market. Still, when pairs are going for around $900, that’s not much consolation. But, with just 529 pairs released – 23 pairs in 23 stores – if you do acquire these bangers, you’ll be joining an elite club.

Air Jordan V "Doernbecher"

Release Year: 2013
Estimated Value: $975
Original Retail: $180

The most recent Air Jordan “Doernbecher” release, the Air Jordan V has maintained it’s crazy resale value, even after a slight quick-hitting restock. Hovering around the high-$900 range, it won’t come cheap to get your hands on these eye-catchers.

Air Jordan I "Banned"

Release Year: 2011
Estimated Value: $1000
Original Retail: $110

We’ve covered the tales of one of Jordan Brand’s most perplexing releases of all time, with 2011’s Air Jordan I “Banned” hitting retail only at Nike factory outlets. So, if you were one of the lucky ones who came up on a pair, hold on to them. They currently command about $1,000 on the resale market.

Air Jordan VI "Doernbecher"

Release Year: 2009
Estimated Value: $1050
Original Retail: $165

It took many Jordan heads by surprise when JB retro’d their first Doernbecher release in 2013 with the Air Jordan III. Subsequently, the anticipation has been high that we’ll see a re-release of one of the more beloved Doernbecher Jordans, the Air Jordan VI. With aftermarket prices commanding north of $1,000, the demand is certainly there. We’ve got our fingers crossed!

Air Jordan VI/XI Defining Moments Pack

Release Year: 2006
Estimated Value: $1050
Original Retail: $295

Okay, it’s not a single shoe, but at around $700+ per pair, the Air Jordan VI/XI Defining Moments Pack is one of the best combos JB has ever cooked up. But, there is also an interesting and extremely valuable variation of the DMP pack floating around. The pack’s XI was initially designed to have the word Jordan written in gold on the eyelets, but subsequent testing revealed some color-bleeding. Unfortunately for JB, some shipments had already gone out, and it was too late to recall them. So, while it’s not public knowledge how many actually exist, if you’re sitting on a pair of XIs with the “gold eyelets”, take heed…they’re worth a small fortune, with those eBay auctions floating around $5,000!

Air Jordan V Premio "Bin 23"

Release Year: 2011
Estimated Value: $1050
Original Retail: $175

Dropping in February of 2011, to the tune of 2,133 pairs, the plush Air Jordan V Premio Bin 23 is one of the cleanest non-OG colorways to ever hit the silhouette. And that is certainly evident when trying to acquire a pair on the resale market. Most prices are north of $1,000.

Air Jordan XX3 "Titanium"

Release Year: 2008
Estimated Value: $1100
Original Retail: $230

Most of the entries on this list consist of the usual suspects, the numbered J’s from I-XIII, but the Air Jordan XX3 is special. Obviously, with MJ’s affinity for the number 23, all eyes were on Jordan Brand for the release of the 23rd silhouette in the signature line. The first colorway dropped on the silhouette was the super-limited “Titanium” colorway. With 23 retailers receiving just 23 pairs (both stateside and Internationally – 1,058 pairs total), it’s understandable why resale market prices land in the $1,100 neighborhood.

Air Jordan XIII Premio "Bin 23"

Release Year: 2010
Estimated Value: $1200
Original Retail: $175

We could actually put all the Bin 23 collection releases on this list, but the Air Jordan XIII Premio is one of our personal favorites. The unusual color combo (particularly for an Air Jordan), and luxe materials give these beauties staying power. Too bad that most of the 1,734 pairs in circulation go for about $1,200.

Air Jordan VIII "Quentin Richardson"

Release Year: 2008
Estimated Value: $1600
Original Retail: $140

With 24 pairs released in 2008, and dropping alongside the “Sugar Ray” Air Jordan VIII PEs, the Quentin Richardson PE colorway is just as limited, even if it does lack a similarly catchy nickname. If you can find them, pairs of these go for quite a bit less than the “Sugar Ray” PE…however, that’s a relative term, as they still go for about $1,600.

Air Jordan IX Premio "Bin 23"

Release Year: 2010
Estimated Value: $1600
Original Retail: $175

The 2010 Air Jordan Premio “Bin 23″ collection stepped up the game by using high-quality materials to adorn some of the most beloved AJ silhouettes, resulting in some of the most coveted (and valuable) Jordans on the market today. Though each release in the series was a wild hit, the second release of the Bin 23 collection, the gold-gilded Air Jordan IX, according to it’s after-market value, seems to be the fan-favorite. With only 1,331 pairs in circulation, prices for a DS pair have been hovering around $1,600.

Air Jordan V "Tokyo23"

Release Year: 2011
Estimated Value: $1750
Original Retail: Overseas

The Japan-only sneaker release has burned many a US-based sneakerhead. But in 2011, when the eye-catching Air Jordan V “Tokyo23″ dropped, that burn was scorching! Done up in beautiful yellow nubuck, the T23 V makes our list with most pairs hitting the resale market for north of $1,700. Ouch.

Air Jordan II "Eminem"

Release Year: 2008
Estimated Value: $2100
Original Retail: $110

Slim Shady’s history with Nike, and Jordan specifically, has been well documented. So, in 2008, when Eminem dropped this crazy Air Jordan II collab to celebrate the release of his autobiography, you knew it was going to be special. But, with only 313 pairs (Detroit, stand up!) released via contest, getting your hands on them has become a pricey endeavor. Look to spend at least two grand to acquire a pair.

Air Jordan I High Strap "Just Don BHM"

Release Year: 2013
Estimated Value: $2500
Original Retail: Auction

When Just Don was tabbed for Jordan Brand’s Black History Month collab last year, everyone who knew anything about the brand knew it was going to cost a pretty penny. But, with just 37 pairs, available only through charity auction, it’s no surprise we find these beauties near the top of our list. Look, we’re in no way advocating paying nearly three stacks for them, but with crazy details like legit python accents, subtle etched African print, and a matching Just Don x Jordan snapback, the approximate $2,500 asking price on the resale market is at least a little more understandable.

Air Jordan IV "UNDFTD"

Release Year: 2005
Estimated Value: $4000
Original Retail: Raffle

You already know what these are…some of the rarest and most coveted Js to ever hit retail, UNDFTD’s Air Jordan IV is the holy grail of sneakerheads everywhere. With only 72 pairs in circulation, and dropped at retail by raffle, simply finding someone willing to part with them is a monumental task in and of itself. But if you can find ’em, coming up with 4-5 Gs to pay for them is the next move.

Air Jordan VIII "Sugar Ray"

Release Year: 2007
Estimated Value: $4850
Original Retail: $140

“Sugar” Ray Allen is one of very few players to have their PEs actually hit retail, and the only one to have more than one. But, 2007s blink-and-you-missed-it Air Jordan VIII PEs are crazy…and crazy valuable. With only 24 pairs released, exclusively at House of Hoops in New York, these are also some of the rarest Js around, which makes determining their precise value tricky. However, in Flight Club’s catalog they have a pair listed for 5 stacks, and another pair sold on eBay in 2012 for $4,700…yikes.

Air Jordan XI "Silver Anniversary" with Jumpman

Release Year: 2010
Estimated Value: $7500
Original Retail: $150

Just like Willy Wonka hiding golden tickets in chocolate bars, Jordan Brand sprinkled their shipments of 2010s Air Jordan XI “Silver Anniversary” with 25 pairs bearing a white Jumpman logo. The average retail pair was different from most XIs in that, it lacked the iconic logo on the back quarter panel. However, if you were one of the lucky 25 to receive a pair with the logo, you may be sitting on a gold mine. Due to it’s rarity, tracking actual market value of these is pretty tricky. But, back in December, a pair sold on eBay for a crazy $7,500!

    all your price are f*cked up, these were right 2 years ago, but in 2014 you have to pay more than 1000 for any jordan db or 1250 for the premio, the last 3 jordan eminem were 3000$+ , DMP 6/11 at least 1200, tokyo 23 above 2000, xx3 nothing but 1250+
    miro 7 never saw below 1000, laser 4s in DS condition are always 1000+
    but banned ones are easily found for 600-800 not 1000, never saw Qrich23 8s below 2400

  • reseller

    and the undftd 4s were sold 12500$ the last pair i saw on ebay, I know plenty people who will imediately cop for 4000…..

    • MiamiDadeCounty305

      Email me loso305@mail.com subject rare air,we will make money if u really know buyers

  • bulls01

    you forget quai54 black Vs, XI dmp with golden eyelets, eminem 4s, black gold 1s…

    • Kicks Deals

      Thanks for taking a look! We focused on Jordans that were released and available to the general public for this feature.

    • HoodyMeegs

      they mentioned the DMP XI’s with the golden eyelets when they listed the DMP pack

  • stace

    what about the first air jordan 1’s x dave white?

  • Allan

    This is the reason I’m starting to move to other brands because of nonsense like this. Nike at any time can make any shoe in any quanity. “Rare,” would turn to DUMB.

  • PBullet23

    Damn I got three of the kicks on this list DS. I think reseller is right that these prices are a little low for right now. Also the list consists of stuff that released in a store or was available for sale so like the drake 10s as of right now would not count because they were not sold somewhere.
