    So a few years back a friend of mine convinced me to invest in a pair of the Space Jam 11s. I really didn't know anything about how rare they were but I bought a pair. Recently, I was able to get my hands on a pair of the Jordan 11 Breds. I am not a collector or anything, I was just trying to buy and sell to hopefully made a profit out of. Any idea how much I can make off of them and what is the ideal time to wait before selling them? Also, would I make the most money if I sold them on ebay or should i try selling them somewhere else? Thanks in advance for the advice

    Yeah, I paid about $200 for each but my friend said I can easily get double for both, possibly more if i sell them together as a set. Completely ridiculous to pay that much for shoes but hey, I dont mind making the extra money

    I collect all my Jays. But you can make double off of them. But it has to be one of those common sizes like 8,9 or 10

    really? my friend advised me to get them in size 12 or 13. he said those have been the easiest for him to sell. the breds are size 12 while the space jams are size 13. do they always release 11s around christmas time?

    Size 9-11 are the easiest to sell.

    Depending on were you live try selling them on flight club. I live in so cal and sold my spizike threw them they sold for 450, They get 15% of the sale I think but it's well worth it.

    You should get over $500 for your Space Jams

    You can get around $350 or $400 for the Jordan 11 Bred Retros that were released a while ago.

    I don't know how much you could get for them on eBay, but you should check out trying to sell them on Nike Talk.

    I will only get a pair of Jordan's if they had the power to make my white ass able to dunk.

    i recently won a raffle that allowed me to buy a pair of jordans. it wasn't for myself, but to help out my brother's friend, who ended up buying the pair.

    i didn't realize how lucky i(we) were until i saw the amount of people outside the store asking for more than double the price for the shoes. it was actually a bit scary, in that there were suspicious looking folks who could have easily gotten physical in order to get their way.

    There are still people who will get shot for a pair of Jordans, especially the hard to find/rarer ones... People sell the 09' Space Jams for 250... used.
