Sneaker prices are higher than they've ever been. There are $400 Air Jordan, $720 auto-lacing Nike sneakers, and Kanye West's Yeezy Boosts go for as much as $350. But the sneaker resale industry, even with these steep price tags, is booming. And people are shelling out serious coin for athletic shoes.
A few years ago, StockX CEO Josh Luber estimated that the sneaker resale industry had bit a billion dollars, and it's only growing. His company is a stockmarket for shoes and gives the average resale values of popular sneakers, making it possible to find out which shoes fetched the highest aftermarket values this year.
It comes as no surprise that Adidas had several sneakers that are going for large amounts right now.

Here are the sneakers that released in the past 12 months and are reselling for the most money right now.
