Sorry to disappoint you and rude of everyone to clown on you so hard, but these will never be a "rare pair of j's". Yes, it was the first time they retro'd but they sat in store on shelves and in stock online for literally months before selling out and there are still hella DS pairs sitting on eBay at retail and I've even plenty of pairs lately selling for below retail. In my size I've seen DS pairs going for $175 + free shipping on a shoe that was $220 in 2015.
if anything their value will probably only continue to depreciate in the near future as resellers realize they won't be profitable and unload them.
I like the shoe and the colorway and am stoked I own them but no, you're not gonna wake up some day and have people blowing you up offering to trade you Eminem 4's for your GR 2015 maroon 6 retros.
The Maroon 6's do have a small cult following among Jordan heads and NT folk though, the only way I could forsee their value ever increasing would be if you kept a pair completely DS and managed to resell them to someone years down the road whose pair has become "playground busted" and is just desperate for that CW. And that is assuming that they do not retro again for many years.
Long story short, sorry my friend, but you do not have a "rare pair of Js" in your Maroon 6's, despite how tight that would be.
Think about it this way though; If you keep a pair on ice for 5 years or so and they do not retro again your pair will certainly be rare in terms of total pairs produced vs those still in circulation. While this probably will not translate to any increased monetary value compared to retail (especially considering inflation) they would still have become more "rare".
