Kanye West’s shoe brand ain’t for the careful spenders, Since they are very likely to disrupt your entire budget.
Yeezys are known to be some of the most expensive shoes on the market with the most expensive shoe being the Yeezy 950 boot, with an original price of $585 and the cheapest being Yeezy 500, priced at $200.
However, since Yeezys 950 are no longer made and the chances of getting a pair of original Yeezys directly from Adidas is next to none, I will focus more on the aftermarket prices of Yeezy shoes since that’s what most buyers will be concerned with.
From here on I’ll be talking about the resale prices of Yeezy shoes on the aftermarket. The prices are taken from StockX since it’s one of the most authentic Yeezy reselling websites.
The resale value of Yeezys depends on the design as well as the color! You’d be surprised to know that popular colored-Yeezys are worth up to $1000 more.
According to StockX, the most expensive Yeezys in the aftermarket to this date, are the Nike Yeezy Red October with a resale value of up to $11,000. In comparison, the least expensive of the lot is Adidas Yeezy Boost 350, worth up to $1600, which is still almost 8 times its original price!
StockX Average Price: $11,000
The Nike Yeezy Red October was the last shoe from the collaboration line Yeezy x Nike. The release of the shoe was so secretive, many of the sneakerheads couldn’t get their hands on them. Since their release in 2013, the shoes have only gained more value, getting pricier by the year.
StockX Average Price: $6,300
Given the scarcity of the Nike Air Yeezys, these sneakers only get more valuable with time. Depending on what color you want, the price can range from $6100 for the Nike Air Yeezy 2 ‘Grey Platinum’ to $6,650 for the ‘Solar Red’. The latter colorway was sold out as soon as it hit the market and still remains an unattainable good in the sneakerverse.
StockX Average Price: $3,800
Since this model remains one of the discontinued shoes of the Yeezy x Nike line, it’s very rare and thereby valuable. The two of the most expensive colorways of the silhouette include ‘Blink’ and ‘Net Tan’ priced approximately $4000 and $3500 respectively.
StockX Average Price: $1700
The high-ankle silhouette of the Adidas Yeezy Boost 750 still remains one of the most sought-after shoes in the sneakerverse. Different colorways of this design are priced differently according to their popularity.
The most expensive being the ‘OG Light Brown’ priced over $2000 while the ‘Triple-black’, a less common but still loved colorway of the silhouette, is priced at about $1100.
Average StockX Price: $1600
Being one of the most popular Yeezys of course it had to make it to the list! The Yeezy Boost 350 ‘Turtle Dove’ is one of the most-loved colorways of all time. Since they sold out pretty quickly given their general-population appeal, these remain a rarity and hence, more valuable.

The Yeezys 500 remain one of the cheapest options when it comes to Yeezys. They sell at a reasonable retail and resale price. The retail price of Yeezys 500 is $220. And being one of the less-loved silhouettes, the resale value ranges from $250-$215 depending on the colorway.
‘The High Slate’ colorway of Yeezy 500 is the cheapest in terms of resale.
Yeezy 380 is also one of the more reasonable options in the Yeezy line of shoes. It has a retail price of $230 while the resale price ranges from $200-$250 depending on the colorway. ‘Pepper’, ‘Azure, and ‘Hylte’ are some of the least valued colorways of the silhouette.
Average Resale Price: $215
While Yeezys 500 are a popular silhouette in terms of comfort and durability, some colorways simply failed to impress Yeezy fans. The Yeezy 500 in ‘slate’ stands to be one of the least bid on, and hence the cheapest Yeezys out there.
Average Resale Price: $220
Yeezy 380 is a popular silhouette due to the comfort and support they offer. However, some colorways are simply ugly for lack of a better word. Naturally, the resale value of these colorways dropped significantly.
Sometimes, even the Yeezy tag can’t save a bad colorway. One example is the Yeezy 30 in ‘Hylte’ that resale at about $180. I mean a mixture of neon green and brown? Yeah, I’ll pass.
Other colorways like ‘Azure’ and ‘Pepper’ also suffered the same fate and do not resale at more than $210.
Average Resale Price: $200
Yeezy QNTM was one of the shoes meant for basketball. However, despite the structural support and comfort, some colorways did not make it to the popularity list.
The cheapest of the lot stands to be the Yeezy QNTM in ‘Flash Orange’ which sells as low as $180. Other cheap colorways in the series include ‘Ophani’, ‘Barium’, and ‘Frozen Blue’.
|Shoe Name/ Colorway||Average Resale Price|
|Yeezy 380/ Hylte||$180|
|Yeezy QNTM/Flash Orange||$180|
|Yeezy QNTM/Frozen Blue||$210|
|Yeezy 500/High Slate||$215|
