Are shoes sold on StockX considered "Deadstock"?

3/30/2022

Shoes sold on StockX are considered "deadstock,"  which means that they're authentic, new, and unworn at the time of sale. Deadstock sneakers are also sold with the original box including the box lid and the box label indicating the shoe size, as would be acceptable for sale at a retail location. “Deadstock” sneakers also may or may not include additional accessories (such as laces) that were included in the original packaging at purchase.

 

 

Do my shoes have to be unopened for me to sell them on StockX?

 

Although selling your shoes in pristine condition is the best way to ensure they pass verification, as with sneakers sold at retail, some pairs will pass StockX's verification despite being unlaced, tried on for fit, and/or having slight manufacturer flaws and imperfections that are uncontrollable. In addition, the shoes may pass verification despite the box having minimal damage from shipping, discoloration from storage and/or any normal wear and tear due to aging.

 

 

Does StockX consider the age of the shoe when verifying it?

 

Yes, StockX will consider the age of the shoe when determining whether it passes our verification process, but this is not a guarantee that a shoe will pass. Specifically, StockX will allow an older shoe to display some signs of aging or yellowing that are unavoidable as time passes. Please note however that both shoes must display consistent aging.

 

When buying older shoes off StockX, please be advised that shoes five years or older may experience structural weakness and a lack of durability.  These issues often arise in spite of the conditions the shoes were stored in. Should you choose to wear a pair of older shoes purchased on StockX, we cannot guarantee the shoe's integrity long term.

 

 

Does StockX sell B-Grades?

 

StockX maintains a small number of B-Grades on our site. You can determine if an item is B-Grade by reviewing the product page, as this will be specified within the product’s title.
