Last month, everyone’s go-to marketplace eBay announced it would be starting to give an authenticity verification to sneakers sold on its platform, with its Authenticity Guarantee currently covering new condition Jordans and YEEZYs over $200. eBay plans to expand the guarantee to all collectible sneakers, both new and used, priced over $100 by early 2021.
According to eBay, it sells a sneaker every 1.5 seconds, which is wild. And with that many listings on the site, picking out just 10 for our figurative wishlist was no easy feat. But pick them we did, and you can check them out by scrolling down below.
From some already-iconic YEEZY sneakers to beautiful and recent new Nike Dunk colorways, these are the sneakers we’ve saved to our wishlist now that the eBay Authenticity Guarantee is now place. Good for sleeping safely at night knowing our sneakers are legit. Bad for our bank balance.
Riding the coveted wave of the Travis Scott Jordan 1 sneaker, this similar but general release colorway dropped in October this year. No reverse Swoosh here, but Travis’ favorite color still looks fire on sneakers.
A departure from Kanye’s love of subdued aesthetics, the “Arzareth” is the icy cold YEEZY with glow-in-the-dark overlays. You can’t be ignored in this one.
Believe it or not, 2020 marked a huge 25 years in the game for the Air Jordan 11. To celebrate, we got a new edition of the Tinker Hatfield-designed sneaker — the “Jubilee”. Classic but new in equal measures.
A follow-up to Nike’s and Union LA’s hugely popular collab AJ1 that dropped in 2018 came in the form of the pastel-soaked Union “Guava Ice”. It quickly became of the year’s most sought-after collabs, and trades for way over its retail price.
There’s far to much darkness in the world of sneakers. At least in the opinion of the Dunk “Viotech” there is. This bright beauty dropped in 2019, and paid homage to the OG release from 2002.
The 350 V2 remains the most popular of all YEEZY silhouettes, loved for its comfort and performance-led design elements. The “Zyon” joined the family in the summer of this year.
This 2020 version of the Dunk “Michigan” stays true to its OG predecessor from 1985. That shoe was part of the Be True To Your School Pack of university-inspired sneakers, and the colorway remains as good today.
Against the usual earthy color palette of YEEZY sneakers, the “Safflower” stands out boldly through its sunshine yellow upper. A little dose of brightness could come in use right now.
On the other of the end of the shade spectrum, the “Utility Black” colorway of the YEEZY 500 introduced a murdered-out take on the popular 500 line back in 2018.
We don’t need tell you that slides are on the agenda now. And if you want to really invest in something you’ll likely spend a lot of time in right now, we’d reccomend one from a YEEZY.
