The JJJJound NB 992 Drop
The grey JJJJound New Balance 992 released Friday, July 24th exclusively through JJJJound’s website. The limited edition sneaker was something JJJJound enthusiasts and sneaker resellers alike were salivating over. In this article, we are going to break down what happened in this drop and what you can expect for this Friday’s green pair.
The JJJJound New Balance 992 collaboration is going to be one of the best sneakers to release in 2020. Both the grey pair and the green pair are extremely limited and very sought after. The release on July 24th was described by some as a joke. Why? Because it was near impossible to cop unless you had an incredibly adept sneaker bot. The only pairs that have surfaced on Instagram as of the writing of this article are from social media influencers and personalities.
The resale on the grey pair is astronomical! On StockX, a size nine has sold for $1807. The retail price of the sneaker is $260. That means the sneaker sold for seven times its market value in less than 24 hours of its release. For most people this price is much too expensive to pay. However, this is just another example of sneaker culture and hyped sneakers in 2020. Some people are hopeful for the chance to purchase a pair of the green variant, but we think that pair may be even harder to acquire and might garner higher resale prices.
The green JJJJound New Balance 992 is slated to release this Friday, July 31st. The green colourway is our favourite of the two colourways. The hue of the green is both natural and satisfying. It is also a very unique pair of 992. There have not been very many green 992s released from New Balance, and this one, in our opinion, was done right. We can not wait to see the result of the drop on Friday, and if you happen to get your hands on a pair, we would love to hear how you did it and what you plan to do with the sneaker.
