Blessed by Kanye (Yeezus) himself. These were the most anticipated and the most sort after kicks of 2017. The Black and White colorway is nick named Zebra’s by sneaker heads. Every Hypebeast / Sneakerheads dream.

These retail for around $220. Well..good luck finding them at this price, the resell on these limited kicks skyrocketed to $600 and upwards.

 

2. Air Jordan 1 Retro “Royals”

A remastered classic Jordan 1’s in this blue and black colorway was well received as these were believed to be the first colorway made available to the public (back in 1985) and also despite never been worn on court by Michael Jordan, the blue and black color combination was MJ’s favorite.

These retail for $160 and resale on these bad boys is $220.

 

3. Kaws Air Jordan IV

Graffti artist Brian “Kaws” collab with the Nike+Jordan Brand resulted in these premium suede Jordan IV’s. These shoes featured Kaws’ XX and a glow in the dark outsole (a party trick).

These Glow in the Dark XX’s retail for $350 and the resellers charge an upwards of an eye watering 1.2G’s (YIKES)!

Last year Adidas rocked the world with the NMD’s and its signature blue and red midsole plugs. So Adidas decided to re-release the OG colorway this year to re-ignite the love for the slowly deteriorating NMD fan base.

Price $180 Resell Cop for about $two fiddly.
