Air Jordan 4 Lightning

Despite releasing over two months ago, the Air Jordan 4 Lightning is the last week’s most sold sneaker on StockX. Prior to the Jordan 4 Lightning’s comeback in late August, it had never been re-issued since making its debut in 2006. This long-awaited return coupled with an influx of supply has created steady trade volume, pushing the Lightning 4 to become one of the top ten most sold Jordans in 2021.

Nike Dunk Low Georgetown

If you read last week’s installment of The Drop List, you will notice that this is the second week in a row that the Nike Dunk Low Georgetown has a top two best selling sneaker on StockX. It’s even more impressive knowing that these Dunks haven’t even received a global release yet. You can find out more release information below. 

Most Expensive Sneaker of the Week

The most expensive sneaker of the week is determined by a closed sale in the given time period, meaning that the sneaker was authenticated and confirmed by StockX.

Nike Foamposite One Comme des Garçons Homme Plus

After debuting in the Comme des Garçons Homme Plus Fall / Winter 2021 runway show, the Nike Foamposite One Comme des Garçons Homme Plus collection is set to finally release.

In avante-garde fashion, Comme des Garçons reimagines the Foamposite One by stripping away its signature vertical ridges and implementing patterns reminiscent of zen gardens. The monotone palettes of both white and black colorways put an emphasis on the shoe’s unique construction. Comme des Garçons Homme Plus branding on the heel adds the finishing touch.

Both colorways of the Nike Foamposite One Comme des Garçons Homme Plus sneaker releases on Friday, November 5th for $520 in-store and online at Dover Street Market.
