Today our guest bloggers are the sneaker experts at Highsnobiety.
As we mentioned briefly in our guide to Keeping Your Sneakers Looking Fresh, eBay is a verified repository of deadstock gems and sneaker grails. If you have some dough to part with, and you’re a sneakerhead, you might want to scroll down and check out our suggestions. Typically, offerings will vary greatly from your local sneaker boutique, with OG kicks and limited editions galore.
1. Nike Air Jordan 1 OG
Circa 1985, these are a sneakerhead’s wet dream. OG Jumpman footwear is the stuff of legends, and the price tag is fairly indicative of how much sway these possess in the sneaker world. Buy here.
2. Nike SB Low Pro “Heineken”
It may not seem like a big deal to see a huge corporation like Heineken teaming up with a brand with both niche and global appeal like Nike. But at the time, this collaboration was groundbreaking. Buy here.
3. Nike Air Mag
These pretty much set the internet on fire, and you probably couldn’t afford or even gain access to these unless you were a celebrity. Buy here.
4. Nike Air Cortez
Few things can revive a sneaker from obscurity like a shout-out in a rap song. This unworn pair is from 1992. Buy here.
5. Nike Air Jordan III
One would be hard pressed to find a pair of Jordan IIIs in better condition than this pair from 1994. The white cement colorway is widely worshipped, as well as its modern successors. Buy here.
