Most Expensive Adidas Yeezy Today Based on Average Resale Price

The resale price is determined by basic supply and demand rules. The resale price reflects how limited the Yeezy is. The higher the price, the less there is of the shoe. At least that’s what we thought. So to figure out the status of the stock, we based our guess on seeing the average price people paid for the shoe. We checked sales and prices on StockX to make an estimated guess.

Ranking from most limited – least limited (based on average resale price): 

  1. Yeezy Boost 750 – Light Brown: $2756
  2. Yeezy Boost 350 – Turtle Dove: $2247
  3. Yeezy Boost 350 – Pirate Black: $1750
  4. Yeezy Boost 350 – Moonrock: $1497
  5. Yeezy Boost 350 – Oxford Tan: $1426
  6. Yeezy Boost 750 – Triple black: $1165
  7. Yeezy Boost 750 – Light Gray/Gum: $1164
  8. Yeezy Boost 750 – Chocolate: $764

The problem?

Yeezy Boost Semi Frozen Yellow

Apparently, we can’t just base the estimate on this factor. Take a look at what just happened with the Yebras. They forcefully broke the rule of supply and demand. Before the Yeezy Boost 350 Beluga 2.0s dropped, the asking price for Yebras was in thousands. Since the Beluga 2.0s dropped a week after the Yebras release, you can buy the Yebras for as low as $630.

How did that happen?

Yeezy Boost Beluga 2.0 Resale value

Since the stock was dense, people decided to cop their own Yeezys, or get them online for a way cheaper price than the Yebras. The resale market is oversaturated with the Belugas. The same will happen with the Blue Tints, since they’ll be the second most dense stock level for V2s ever. Or maybe people thought the shoe was ugly? So maybe this won’t happen with the Blues once they release.

Following the same method we worked on before, let’s see how we could rank the stock level of the V2s.

Ranking from most limited to least limited V2s (based on average resale price):

  1. Yeezy Boost 350 Yeezy Boost Resale Value mark V2 – Beluga: $901
  2. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 – Black & Red: $809
  3. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 – Yebra: $804
  4. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 – Zebra: $722
  5. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 – BRED: $690
  6. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 – Black & Green: $644
  7. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 – Black & Copper: $620
  8. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 – Oreo: $594
  9. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 – Cream White: $544
  10. Yeezy Boost 350 V2 – Beluga 2.0: $448

We know these results aren’t true. The Yeezy Mafia made this Rarity Chart to prove that.

But before the Yeezy Mafia, there was no real way of actually knowing how limited a Yeezy was. What stands true is its average resale price. Today, the resale price of other Yeezys is a lot higher than that of newer V2s. So it’s only logical that the prices of the V2s could go higher as time goes by.

Factors that Affect Resale Price

Different factors played a role in how much people are willing to pay for each shoe. Factors like:

  • Date and time of the release
  • The colorway and aesthetic appeal
  • Age and condition of the shoe
  • Influencers and Endorsements

Date & Time of the Release

Sometimes we’re so Yeezy-thirsty, we’re willing to pay a lot more for a Yeezy when there’s a drought. But similar to what happened with the Yebras, if another Yeezy is following closeby, people will wait it out. If you’re thinking about selling the Yebra, wait until it’s bidding price goes higher. Because if you’re selling it for it’s bidding price now, you’re not going to make enough money to even pay for the bot, proxies, and servers you got just to cop it.

The Colorway and Aesthetic Appeal

For the short term, it really doesn’t matter what colorway you’re buying. A Yeezy is still Kanye’s, still has Boost, and has its appeal. However, as time goes by, you may be able to tell which colorways and designs are more appealing to people based on how much they are willing to pay as resale price.

Age and Condition of the Shoe

The older the shoe, the more desirable it is. By old, we’re referring to its age since its release date. But of course, a brand new, never-worn, deadstock Yeezy is worth infinitely more than a used pair.

Influencers and Endorsements

Virgil Albogh in Waverunner 700

It happened just recently with the Wave Runners. You didn’t like them at first, but once celebrities started sporting them and showing them off online, they began growing on us. The power of Kanye is divine.

Conclusion

From the above results of the average resale price of earlier Yeezys, we can tell that the two oldest Adidas Yeezys are the more valuable ones to date. Those would be the Light Brown 750s and the Turtle Dove 350s. On average, people have paid more for these two, than any other Adidas Yeezy, with reason! The Light Brown 750 is the first Adidas Yeezy, Kanye design to be introduced and sold, and the Turtle Dove is the first 350 design. So it’s only natural that they hold a lot of sentimental value! The same pattern exists in the second-ranking among the V2s. The Beluga, the first 350 V2, is the most valuable among them. It released some time ago, and we can only expect the price for it to increase as time goes by.
