If you’re into sneakers, then you might have experienced wanting a pair so bad only to find out that they’re sold out in stores everywhere. The only solution to your problem is to buy the pair from resellers. It might seem like a simple solution to some but the problem is the resale price can get ridiculously high.
Take the Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Black as an example. If you successfully copped a pair last week, then you’re one of the lucky ones who were able to buy it at a retail price of around $200. If you took an L and you badly want one, resale price is already at around $900 (around Php 45,000) at StockX! That’s more than 4 times its original cost! And it’s only been a few days since the release. At that price, would you still cop?
You might be wondering what made the price skyrocket like that. It’s because of two things: the shoes are in demand and there were only a few stocks released to the public. Now we understand why people fall in line for hours for the Yeezy.
