While the resale market is usually bloated with coveted sneakers going for far more than their original retail price, that doesn't mean you can't find good deals. While it might take a bit of digging, if you know what to look for, you can even cop sneakers for less than their MSRP.

Most notably, resale platforms such as Stadium Goods and StockX offer a surprising number of sneakers for under retail price, from recent drops to classic models. For starters, two of Kanye West’s ever-popular YEEZY adidas collaborations are available for slightly under retail — a good come up for anyone looking to get started in the sneaker game.

With a bit of ingenuity and time to search, you can find some serious gems. We've rounded up some of the best bargains that we found online ranging from luxury pairs from Prada and Gucci through to Off-White™ x Nike and underrated general releases.

Please note that prices are subject to change due to resale hikes and fluctuations, so prices might not be 100 percent accurate at the time of reading.

While it wasn’t as popular as the laced Spiridons, this project arguably has a much stronger visual identity and, dropping as low as $75 at times, is a diamond in the rough.

In similar style to the atmos x Nike Air Max pack that dropped earlier in the year, this 2019 Air Jordan 3 silhouette features faux-fur uppers with a selection of wild animal prints.
