The world of resale is a place of great forgiveness. It gives you a second chance to cop the pieces that you slept on or were beaten to checkout on the first time around. That’s a rare luxury, but it often comes at a price. Some items, depending on exclusivity and desirability, can hit dizzying price tags which make up headlines week on week. What we hear less about, though, is that it's possible to find your pieces under retail price at resale, too.
That’s right. You missed out the first time, went to find it on StockX, ready to pay up, and realized that those kicks are now actually cheaper than they originally were. It’s rare, but it happens. Below, we’ve detailed the best items that fit that mold: they’re currently selling for less than their retail price at StockX.
Spanning sneakers, electronics, collectibles, and streetwear, there are under-retail gems across the board here. A word of warning though: while all of these items were taken from the Under Retail category on StockX, that doesn’t mean that all sizes are available for less than retail. Be sure to check whether you’re one of the lucky ones before copping.
See the best items to cop for under retail at StockX below.
adidas Samba OG
The adidas Samba has been a staple for us this year. Hitting new heights after names like A$AP Rocky and Frank Ocean donned the silhouette, the Samba OG should be in every rotation.
adidas Ultraboost 4.0 DNA
adidas Ultraboost is a star in the sneaker world — it really can do no wrong. Dressed in its fan-favorite Triple Black outfit, this pair is a stone-cold classic.
Supreme x RIMOWA Cabin Plus
Teaming up with luggage king RIMOWA, Supreme gave the Cabin Plus suitcase a gothic update with spiderwebs against an all-black backdrop.
Nike x CLOT Air Max 1 Kiss of Death
Continuing a long line of creative collaboration with CLOT, the Kiss of Death landed in 2021 as a reissue of the grailed 2006 iteration.
Nike x Stüssy Insulated Jacket
Nike & Stüssy's collaboration history is long and fruitful. This padded drop seemed to slip under the radar though. This lightweight jacket is ideal for winter layering.
Nike Blazer Mid 77 Vintage
As the Nike Blazer comes into focus, with names like Sacai and KAWS already using it as a collaborative canvas, now might be a good time to stock up on the silhouette before its clout ramps up.
Nike x Fragment Design Dunk High Beijing
Landing in June of this year, the Nike Dunk High Fragment Beijing offered a beautifully understated take on the silhouette that dominated the year’s headlines.
Daniel Arsham IKEA Art Event Clock
Daniel Arsham has had a wild year. Breaking into the NFT scene and hitting multiple headline gallery shows. This IKEA clock is still one of our favorite household pieces from the artist.
Nike Air Max 97
Inspired by Japan’s bullet trains, the Air Max 97 is a sleek piece of sportswear history that’s going nowhere. An increased interest in the Air Max family from collaborative projects puts the 97 in a good position to blow (again) soon.
Reebok Club C 85 Eames
Design heads listen up. The Reebok Club C 85 is a timeless classic in its own right, making it the perfect starting point for a collaboration with none other than Eames. Everything done in good measure, this pair epitomizes Eames’ design philosophy.
Microsoft XBOX Series X 1TB Halo Infinite Limited Edition Console Bundle
Halo Infinite dropped recently to the boundless delight of gamers the world over. When the XBOX Series X Halo Infinite Limited Edition Console dropped, that delight doubled. Now that you can cop for less than retail... Well, it's a lot to take in.
Nike Air Force 1 Craft
A pair of crisp white Air Force 1s will never not be the right choice, but we’ve been loving the Craft this year. As the name suggests, a closer focus on materials and production offers a more high-end take on the staple.
Nike Air Max 90 Recraft Royal
The Air Max 90 is considered a legendary silhouette for OG collectors. That’s maybe why it looks so good in OG colorways like the Recraft Royal.
