Kanye West once said that everybody who wants to get Yeezys will be able to get Yeezys. While that seemed like a pipedream in 2015 and even 2016, it's increasingly becoming a reality, with Adidas making more and more of the shoes. What does that mean for the THE most-self-important people in sneaker culture, the resellers, though? Well, it's not so bad.
Is it true that resale values have plummeted from the days when any Yeezy would resell for over a thousand dollars? Yes. But an analysis of Yeezy releases in 2017 by StockX and High Snobiety shows that things aren't the dire straits that some were crying over.
Here's the truth: For every dollar spent on Yeezys on StockX in 2017, nearly a quarter went to “Zebras, and while the adidas Yeezy 350 v2 "Zebra" was the most- sold Yeezy on StockX this past year, the “Beluga 2.0” and “Cream White” were second and third respectively, accounting for nearly 60 percent of the Yeezy resell market on StockX between the three colorways
So there you have it. Everyone can have Yeezys and get a piece of the pie, too. Read the rest of the report here.
