Kinda corny, I know, but nevertheless 100% true!! I love selling sneakers and hopefully I’ve done a good enough job to convince you that you should be doing the same.
In the beginning, I was primarily selling only Nike and Air Jordan’s and, to this day, these two are still my dominant brands in the footwear category. And can you blame me? These two are strong players in each of the major sports – football, basketball, and baseball – and with sales like the youth Air Jordan’s that I’m going to share with you later (isn’t that an AWESOME sale?!) why would I ever stop?
Nowadays, I sell a much more diverse lineup of brands and my sales have been rewarded as a result. Asics, Adidas, Reebok, and Puma are all great sellers also and they have their own set of loyal buyers who scour eBay in search of a good deal- so don’t forget to research those brands as well.
I hope you’re having an amazing and productive week so far. I know it’s only Wednesday but I hope you’re rewarded with some nice sales on eBay and/or some incredible thrift store finds to help you get set up for a nice weekend
Take care and I’ll talk to you soon!

Remember when I mentioned in my previous post that I was dealing with a non-paying bidder? Well, it was for this pair. Actually, I should be thanking that buyer because I was able to re-list this item with an even higher buy-it-now (BIN) price. So thank you, non-paying bidder!
Vintage Nike Kobe Bryant

Winning Bid: $41.00
Asics Running Shoes

The price for these was a little higher than I would like to pay, but did that scare me off? No fricken way! Not for this pair!! I would’ve went as high as paying $30 or even $40 for this model, in this condition because I know how valuable they are.
In this business, there’s no substitute for brand knowledge, so keep learning and keep it expanding and you’ll be continuously rewarded!
