This is one of the more highly anticipated releases and there were plenty of fans of the model waiting in the wings and ready to make their move upon the initial release. The shoe has taken the term Social Status to the limit and those who were fast were able to get in on the first wave.

Admittedly, there is a lot of hype made over the new Social Status x Air Jordan 6 sneakers, but there is merit to back all of the to do. People seem to always want something that is exclusive and in rare supply more than the things that you can pick up anywhere for a low price. The sparse availability is one of the factors that has stirred at least some of the hype. The overarching reason for its incredible popularity is because of the build, the styling and the quality. Here's the main reason why the Social Status x Air Jordan 6 is such a tough shoe to acquire:
Nike collaborated with James Whitner to design the premium grade shoe. All you really need to do is take one close look at the shoe to determine its merit. The fur upper with its overlays of snakeskin give it an elegant aesthetic and the color blocking with the outsole and the purple draw all draw the eyes and hold the attention of the observer. It's a beautiful shoe and who wouldn't want to wear them if given the opportunity? Cutting directly to the chase, they're a well built sneaker and they're very comfortable to wear. When you combine all of the factors together, it's really not difficult to understand why they Social Status x Air Jordan 6 is in such high demand.
Where can you find the Social Status x Air Jordan 6 right now?
There are still places that have the Social Status x Air Jordan 6 available for purchase. KickOnFire Shop has them for sale for a price of $294. Although it's about $44 over the suggested retail value, it's one of the better prices that is offered in the wake of the buying frenzy that has recently taken place over the extremely limited edition Nike sneaker.
You can also find them at the Goat website for an even lower price than KickOn Fire for a cost of $210 for a new pair, but they're available in limited quantities so you'll need to check to make sure that they have your size in stock. We also found them for sale on Mercari with a price range that runs between $270 and $350 per pair but they're not available in all sizes. We also found a pair of size 10.5 on Bonanza for a selling price of $386.
If you weren't fortunate enough to get in on the first wave of sales it's starting to get a little late in the game, but don't give up. It's not impossible to find them, it just takes a dedication to searching online. A few fortunate souls may be able to pick a pair up for close to the retail price and in very rare cases, a little under, but the majority of vendors realize that they have an item that is in high demand and therefore has a higher value than its original retail selling price. One of the biggest challenges is in finding your size. We wish you the best of luck in finding your size and claiming your own pair of this very special edition sneaker. We think it's worth the work in the long run.
