Ok, so it’s no secret that sneakerheads have been stalking eBay for those one-of-a-kind, rarer than rare collectable kicks forever. Well this weekend in our nation’s fashion capital, NYC of course, we teamed up with shoe shoppers and cleat collectors to chat about our ‘What’s It Worth Tool,’ where you can search anything to see what it’s going for on eBay and discover our most popular items based on sales, watches, and views. Brought to you by eBay DataLabs, this uber useful trick displays price and quantity trends and shows you the range of dough you can expect for listing new and used super sick sneakers. You can also see what people like you have bought, are watching, and have viewed recently, so that you’ve got a pulse on the best times to list and invest on the things you love.
