What is the retail price?
The original price of the classic Midnight Navy in the year 2000 was set to $160. But because of the brand going retro with Air Jordan 16 today, it is expected that the retail price will go up in value. The price tag of the sneakers that will be released this December is $250. That is a raise of $90 but all is well and good once you purchased and owned the “Midnight Davy.” Get a feel of what it is like to be an MVP on and off the court with these head turning sneakers.
