Deadstock is a retail term that applies to merchandise that sat on the shelves, never sold, and was pretty much left forgotten in a warehouse or a back room.
In the sneaker world and culture, the term has come to mean a pair of shoes that’s still in-the-box fresh, despite being years—even decades—old. It’s a mint condition, wearable time capsule. A pair of deadstock kicks is more or less a holy grail.
That is why following sneakers cost as much as a world trip or new car. Continue below and be amazed by the prices.
The Air Yeezy Net/Net is priced $3,000, the Air Yeezy Zen Grey/Light Charcoal is priced at $3,250, and the Air Yeezy Black/Black is priced at $3,500 at Stadium Goods. Each color way originally had a suggested retail price of $215 and sold out almost immediately.
LeBron 9 Low Arnold Palmer is priced at $7,500, and the LeBron 8 Retro South Beach is priced at $1,500 at Stadium Goods. The “LeBronold Palmers” were never actually released in stores, making them highly coveted. The South Beach sneakers represent LeBron’s move from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Miami Heat.
