OFF-WHITE x Nike’s reconstruction of 10 sneaker icons has been a collaboration received with unprecedented hype. Unfortunately, in consumer terms, that has so far translated to a whole lotta “L”s and surging resell prices across the board.
Starting out with the release of Abloh’s modified Air Jordan 1 in September 2017, the OFF-WHITE x Nikecollaboration that went by the name “The Ten” also included renditions of the Blazer, Air Max 90, Air Presto, Air VaporMax, Converse Chuck Taylor, Air Force 1, React Hyperdunk, and, most recently, two new Prestos. And with more colorways of previously released silhouettes scheduled before the end of 2018, that list will be added to further still, with new Blazers on the horizon.
Featuring trademark OFF-WHITE design elements such as zip-ties and Helvetica text in air quotes on the heel and shoelaces, the sneakers prove particularly hard to cop at retail price when they first drop.
But if you fell in love with a particular model of Abloh’s reconstructed Nike silhouettes and didn’t manage to get your hands on a pair, all is not lost. Granted, those still in circulation come with a considerably marked up price point, but sneaker resellers such as Stadium Goods, StockX, and GOAT all have box-fresh models in a number of sizes.
So if you can’t wait for the much-anticipated OFF-WHITE x Nike 2018 drops still to come, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of all the best resell deals currently available on every “The Ten” sneaker you didn’t manage to add to your rotation.

Air Jordan 1
Widely considered the “flagship” from the pack, the original OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Jordan is sure to go down as one of the most coveted sneakers of all time, and can you really put a price on your piece of sneaker history?
Speaking with Business of Fashion, Abloh said of the Blazer that it “Exemplifies making a product interesting by only changing a design element by three percent.” The pair is also in extremely high demand, with starting prices just short of $1,000.
First teased in August 2017, new OFF-WHITE x Nike Air Prestos in black and white colorways are rumored for as soon as later this month. But if nothing short of the original model cuts it, get hold of it from one of the resell sites below.
Air Max 97
With new Air Max 97 colorways rumored for release this November, the first OFF-WHITE x Nike collab on the silhouette came in all white on November 4, 2017, for the considerably more reasonable price point of $190. Alas, click through to see where it stands now.
Air Force 1 Low
Another of November 2017s releases, the Air Force 1 was first released in Berlin via a Nike SNKRS scavenger hunt, whereby those looking to cop used augmented reality to unlock the shoe. For those who tried and failed, it now goes for upward of $1,000.
Air Max 90
Abloh’s deconstructed take on the Air Max 90 came with much hype. For your chance at retail, new colorways are rumored for October 2018, with “desert ore” and “bright mango” currently being thrown around. Otherwise, click through to cop this pair.
One of Nike’s biggest tech accomplishments of last year was the VaporMax, so it’s no wonder OFF-WHITE wanted a piece of the action for “The Ten”, it retailed at $250, but you’ll find it reselling at around 4x that.
Recently repurposed for OFF-WHITE x Nike’s World Cup collection, the Zoom Fly originally retailed for $170. The OG white muslin colorway appeared along with other “Ghosting” models in this round-up back in November 2017.
Another from the “Ghosting” series, these triple white Hyperdunk sport a reconstructed translucent upper, featuring a semi-revealing material to tie-in with the theme.
CTAS ’70 Hi
Bringing an iconic Converse silhouette into the mix, these hi-top All-Stars with translucent upper were here one minute and gone the next, fitting of the “Ghosting” series they are also a part of. The resell links below are your only hope at rocking for summer.
Air Jordan 1s
Coming after the original “Chicago” version, the all-white colorway arrived in March 2018 as a European-exclusive. The first of the line to include a blue zip-tie, the triple white colorway is one of the highest mark-ups from retail on our list.
The third Air Jordan 1 to be worked on by Abloh came in a colorway inspired by the University of North Carolina, where Michael Jordan honed his craft before making the jump to the NBA. It also comes with a considerably higher markup than the original.
Air Force 1s
This collab brought the Museum of Modern Art into the mix and first debuted at Miami Art Basel 2016. Releasing with limited edition socks through the MoMA Design Store, they disapeared in about an hour. Now, your best shot of copping comes at 6x the cost.
Released to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Air Force 1, the OFF-WHITE x Nike edition released exclusively at the second annual ComplexCon in Long Beach, California, alongside other Air Force 1s designed by Don C, Travis Scott, and more.
Equally as sought after as the original, the Nike VaporMax “2.0” came and went in 2018, and can now be copped for anything between $600 and $1600 depending on your shoe size.
The white coloray is no less popular, produced in limited quantities and gone before you even had a chance to appreciate the clear Air sole. Now, you can cop for around 4x its early-2018 price.
Zoom Fly Mercurials
Launched to coincide with the 2018 FIFA World Cup, OFF-WHITE x Nike’s Mercurial Flyknit rethought the shoe with dots placed in common areas a soccer player kicks the ball. Reselling for less than double its retail price, it’s one of the more wallet-friendly sneakers of the lot.
The same concept also came in a bright orange colorway, which you’ll find for anywhere between £350 and $450 via the links below.
The most recent silhouette to be repurposed, the all black Air Prestos now sell for upwards of $800.
A week after the black pair dropped, the white Air Prestos fast became a hyped customizable sneaker, with those who copped taking to Instagram with their dye jobs. Generally speaking, it’s available for slightly less than the black pair resell for.
Serena Williams’ “QUEEN”
Kicking off with the ombre pink and purple-soled Blazers, this exclusive pack for Serena Williams “QUEEN” collection were a U.S. exclusive that dropped relatively unnanounced.
The second shoe of the collection came in the form of an Air Max 97, which retailed on the SNKRS app for $190.
Blazer “Spooky Pack”
The black colorway came otherwise known as the “Grim Reaper”, a leather, suede and mesh halloween-inspired Blazer reselling for around four times its retail value.
The “All Hallow’s Eve” Blazers resell for slightly more, most likely thanks to their unique tan/orange coloring.
The latest from the collaboration to drop is the OFF-WHITE branding-heavy Chuck Taylor 70, following the clean, transparent uppers of the first Converse shoe to drop in Spring 2018.
