In looking back on 2017, eBay has shared its “Top Shopped” retail report for the year, detailing trends, moments and movements that shaped shopping behaviors over the past 12 months.

Notably, there was a high demand for throwback streetwear, namely of the ’80s and ’90s. For example, 25,000 Champion sweatshirts were copped on the e-commerce platform, while 107,000 pairs of adidas Superstars were moved, 28,000 Reebok Classics, and 24,000 pairs of Nike Cortez.

Star Wars frenzy was also in full force throughout 2017, as more than 450,000 Star Wars items were bought leading up to the December release of The Last Jedi.

Smartphones were then scooped up at considerably high rates, and the “millennial pink” obsession reached a tipping point to make way for the new “it” color of 2018 in yellow.

Female empowerment was at the center of another significant movement throughout the year as shoppers purchased more than 43,000 pieces of apparel featuring political and feminist slogans.
