With another quarter in the books, Highsnobiety has once again called on StockX's data and the illustration work of KickPosters to break down the period's most valuable sneakers on eBay with a few informative and easy-to-read charts. You know the drill by now, let's get to it.
For starters, we'll look at the first quarter's top 10 sneakers in terms of total dollars spent. Right off the bat, you'll notice that the Air Jordan XII "The Master" was far and away the biggest earner of the quarter, bringing in a staggering $1.51 million in sales from January 1 to March 31. The runner-up was the O.G.-style "White/Cement" Air Jordan IV which, even at second place, only made a fraction of what the XIIs did with $507,512 in total sales.
The quarter's only adidas Yeezy Boost release, a re-release of the "Pirate Black" Yeezy Boost 350, lagged behind with $406,544 spent, but that number can be partly attributed to this being the second time consumers had a crack at them. Other big earners for adidas included the first NMD "Glitch" colorway and Kith's Tubular Doom Consortium Tour release.
Now, let's take a look at which sneakers were most valuable based on their average sold prices. In comparison to the total dollars spent rankings, this one paints a much different picture due in large part to the sheer rarity of many of these sneakers. For instance, while Solebox's Ultra Boost Uncaged collaboration and the Miami Hurricanes PE were some of the priciest pairs of the quarter, there just weren't very many to go around. Likewise for Nike's Kobe "Black Mamba" pack, which fills in four of the top spots here.
