Most Expensive Sneakers 2018

Each year, analysts predict that the sneaker bubble will soon burst. And each year, the market reacts by growing bigger and bigger. More specifically, the resell market continues to expand as a billion-dollar industry, without any hints of a slowdown. Everybody knows certain shoes are good for a quick cash flip. But some rare, select kicks are the shoe equivalent of a winning Lotto ticket. We’re talking shoes that require extreme blessings from the plug or the willingness to sell an organ to purchase. These aren’t your ordinary sneakers, since they’re friends-and-family versions or exclusive drops limited by geographic location. 

The good people at StockX provided us with the figures for their average resale values. The rankings are determined by these prices and include all sneakers released this year. Here are 2018’s 10 most expensive shoes.
