Sneaker diehards are sure to ask for an Air Jordan silhouette for Christmas. But finding the best deal on them may prove difficult.
The places you can shop will vary depending on the style they’re looking for. Before you head out to shop, consider these suggestions so you ensure you get the gift right without wiping out your bank account.
Stadium Goods and Other Consignment Shops
If the look sold out worldwide in minutes when it dropped, Stadium Goods and other consignment stores are sure to have a pair. Yes, you will likely pay more than retail for the sneakers, but this route will ensure you get an authentic pair and a second chance at a shoe that eluded the Air Jordan fan when it debuted. (And Stadium Goods also often runs promotions around the holidays.)
Want a rare look that’s verified real but don’t feel like getting off your couch? StockX is a great option for you. And because it is the “stock market of things,” you can track how much the sneakers are selling for based on the demand.
Foot Locker and Other Chain Retailers
For general-release sneakers (the ones that don’t sell out right away), shop at Foot Locker and other chains that will likely have holiday sales and discounts that boutiques or consignment shops won’t offer.
