Tired of real estate or jaded with the bitcoin craze? Then get yourself some deadstock sneakers to invest in!
The market for deadstock sneakers has reached tipping point of a giant $1 billion, we've heard it all before but people now are taking notice.
Highsnobiety StockX, and illustrator Dan Freebairn, has teamed up to give us a blow by blow account of the most valuable shoes to give you the moolah you need!
That being said, here's the 2018 Q1 (that’s January 1 to March 31) breakdown with data based on sale activity on StockX.
Just released last March 3, 2018, Virgil Abloh’s white Air Jordan 1 is by far the hottest as it sells for $1,771 on StockX.
While it is strong, it cannot dethrone the Chicago version as it's selling for $1,985 already in the secondary market.
Th e Y-3 Runner 4D featuring a Futurecraft midsole was so limited that it's now selling for $1,744 on StockX.
Running third is a MR PORTER-exclusive Balenciaga Triple S sneaker, can you say more spunk to your chunk?
The elusive “Seoul” Air Jordan 3, alongside the “Ray Gun” Kyrie 3 PE, and Hender Scheme’s luxurious, full-leather take on the adidas Originals NMD come next on the list.
The stats also show that Air Jordan still has a foothold on the market regardless of trends. Given their strong new reissues and designs, the Jumpman leads still.
A brand that will never be seen on this list is Sanuk, but it's value lies in its trademark comfort and style. See for yourself here.
