With Sneaker Con approaching with a two-day event in New York City this week, eBay has released its most up-to-date data on sneaker sales from January to September 2016. Considering that the online shopping site is a treasure trove of hyped, scarce and very rare styles, this information is a pretty accurate reflection of the current purchasing and re-selling habits of sneakerheads.
eBay has broken down its findings into the "most valuable" (or most scarce) and "most popular" (based on quantity sold) sneakers. For its "in-demand" list, five special pairs have shown consistent sales for the longest amount of time. Nike is responsible for each one (no surprise here) with the top slot held by The Air Jordan XII "The Master." Kobe Bryant's "Black Mamba" also makes the list at number three, followed by the Supreme x Nike Air Max 98 and the The Air Jordan XII "Flu Game."
What's most surprising is that the Nike Roshe One sneaker, a style that's been heavily condemned by Four Pins and its followers, comes in as the second-most in demand — and number-one most popular — style on eBay. So if you're a most swagless homie who still sees nothing wrong with the pair, you're clearly not alone.
Read on to find out the top 10 most valuable and popular sneakers on Ebay. Another shocker? Yeezys make the list a handful of times.
