The Top 10 Most Expensive Sneakers of 2017

JD Sports Singapore

The hype surrounding the sneaker market is largely based on the restriction of supply, which inadvertently is the reason for the huge secondary market in the industry.

As it gets increasingly more difficult to cop a pair at retail due to the increasing demand, resellers thrive by being able to charge a premium for sneakers that are rare and hard to obtain.

With that, we explored two of the sneaker industry’s top reselling sites, StockX and GOAT, to find out what were the most expensive – and inadvertently, the most valuable – sneakers that were released in 2017 based on resale prices.

On StockX, we sourced the top 10 based on average resale value (at the time of writing), not including PEs and signed editions. GOAT, on the other hand, released its top 10 list of most valuable sneakers for the year during its interview on WWD. Let’s see how the two platforms compare.
