Top 10 Most Expensive Sneakers Of 2019 So Far

2019 has been a great year for sneaker resellers. Here we have compiled the top 10 most expensive sneakers of this year so far.

The sneaker market is in a continuous expansion and is expected to grow to $95.14 billion USD by 2025.

While most of us shop around for the best deal for sneakers, looking to pay between $85 and $200, there are people who would easily pay up to $6,000 for a pair. For example, this pair of adidas NMD R1 Pharrell HU Friends and Family was sold for a whopping £6,486 ($8,168 approx.) back in 2017.
