Calling all Kicks on Fire readers, I need some help or clarification regarding these baseball cleats that recently dropped. About a week ago, for the first time ever released the Air Jordan 4 as a baseball cleat. The moment I saw them I instantly wished I knew how to play baseball because they look pretty dope and I really needed to find a reason to pick up a pair and wear them instantly!
Several different colorways dropped, such as Royal/White, Black/Grey, White/Black and Red/White. Before looking at the retail price of the baseball cleat, I assumed that they were going to cost something similar to the that dropped a couple months ago (approximately $225). To my surprise, I see that Jordan Brand decided to sell the Air Jordan 4 baseball cleat for a grand total of $95. Yup, for under $100 you can buy these dope looking cleats that are arguably better looking than the Air Jordan 6 golf cleats AND some Air Jordan 4 releases that we’ve seen in the last couple of years! To make matters even more puzzling, I recently came across an online coupon code that puts the price of the Air Jordan 4 baseball cleat all the way down to a grand total of .74, free shipping included! Surprisingly, there are still select sizes left in all 4 different colorways of the model.
Air Jordan 6 golf cleat: 5
Air Jordan 4 Basketball shoe: $190
Air Jordan 4 baseball cleat $80.74
As you can see, the retail price of the baseball cleat is significantly cheaper than both the basketball shoe and the golf shoe.
To start off, I’m disappointed Jordan Brand didn’t release some of these colorways in the form of a basketball shoe. Imagine that royal blue leather as a basketball shoe?! What about the red leather pair? Those releases would sell out instantly. Another thing that surprised me is the price of the cleat. It can be argued that there is more technology or specs on the baseball cleat than there is on the basketball shoe, yet, the basketball shoe is sold for the double the price of the baseball cleat.
Imagine If retros solD for $95?!
There’s no doubt that if Jordan Brand priced them at $95 and doubled or even tripled up on their inventory, they would still sell out all day!
Many of us are so used to paying big money on Jordan Retros that when we see this Jordan Retro baseball cleat priced at under $100, we’re not really sure what to think of it. A countless amount of questions begin to run through your mind:
Am I paying too much for Jordan Retros?
Are the Jordan baseball cleats cheap or reasonably priced?
Why did the Air Jordan 6 golf cleat retail for a lot more and resold for three times the retail price?
