Forget the hype feels like an odd thing to say when we’re dealing with copping kicks from StockX. The platform’s USP is hype, effectively being a stock market of the sneaker world, measuring the growing or dwindling popularity behind releases. But, more and more, the attraction of buying our shoes from StockX rests on the fact that many pairs are sold below retail.

Mostly, the kicks you can find below retail are timeless sneakers. We’re talking adidas Superstars, Nike Air Force 1s, Converse Chuck 70s, and the like. And even though you can shop them for below retail, they’ll almost definitely last longer than your more hyped pairs.

That’s the beauty of timeless sneakers: they’re going nowhere. You can have each and every one of the below pairs in your rotation for the foreseeable future with no stress of them becoming deeply uncool overnight. That’s how a wardrobe should be built, really.

So, while not all of them are below retail, your cost-per-wear numbers will be hitting expert levels with any of the timeless sneakers in our selection. So keep scrolling and start filling your rotation with the pairs that really matter.
