Every year, the online resale platform StockX releases its trend report, and this year the “Big Facts: 2023 Trends” reveals Travis Scott is the ultimate sneakerhead’s idol, with his collaborative Jordan shoes snatching the top two spots of the most coveted collabs.
The Jordan 1 Retro Low Golf Travis Scott Neutral Olive became the most popular collab this year, with a 397% increase from its original retail price, averaging at $846 on StockX. The Low OG SP women’s version of the collaborative Jordan takes the second spot, with a price increase of over 342%. Clearly, the Utopia rapper knows how to put his La Flame touch onto sneakers.
Though it wasn’t just the Travis Scott x Nike Jordan 1 sneaker that had its fair share of success this year. Standouts of this year cover a range of different styles and brands, including the New Balance 9060 sneakers receiving a 744% year on year trade growth. Clearly people aren’t ready to let go of the dad sneaker trend just yet.
Perhaps this can be attributed to our generation’s disproportionate feelings of nostalgia, as adidas had some of its best sellers rooted in retro styles. Over $8 million was spent on trading the Campus 00s, while the Samba and Gazelle shoes topped last year’s sales with a triple-digit trade growth.
Nike still seems to be dominating the most-wished for products StockX Lists. The curative initiative launched by StockX found Jordan 1s and 4s, as well as Dunks, were some of the most requested pairs this year.
This year also marks a stepping stone for Crocs, specifically with its Pixar collaboration. The Pixar x Crocs Mater Clog became the best performing collab for the footwear brand, with over $465K spent on the clog on StockX’s site.
Comfort was on everyone’s mind this year as UGG’s Tasman and Tazz Slippers had over 90,000 trades and saw a massive spike in searches, by 2,340% and 1,340% respectively. Considering the Holiday season is right around the corner, the fuzzy slippers won’t be going anywhere, except if it’s on more people’s feet.
Over on the apparel side, the newcomers are giving the old schoolers a run for their money. While the likes of Supreme and Fear Of God are still some of the top traded brands, disruptive streetwear brands Hellstar, Denim Tears, and Trapstar saw their searches go up massively, overtaking the interest of the established brands.
