Sneakerheads are arguably the most knowledgeable and accomplished collectors in the world right now, and can do secret midnight sales in the most unlikely and exclusive locations as if they owned ESP. They track down ultra-rare kicks as if they were tireless bloodhounds – and no one can beat them for their devotion.
However, all of this dedication to the pursuit of fine, high-end sneakers takes a lot of work. That’s why eBay’s new Authentication Guarantee aims to ensure that their collectors actually get what they pay for – and that they can save all their energy on the hunt for the next Insta-worthy pair of Jordan, Nike, Yeezy, Adidas , New Balance, Puma, Asics, Converse, Vans or Reebok shoes.
Of course, eBay is already synonymous with collecting sneakers. It has the world’s largest inventory of sought-after sneakers and the largest selection. Do you want the size 10 Nike Air Yeezy 1 in Zen Gray? They know you check eBay first (and yes they did). Newcomer DJ Khaled x Air Jordan Retro 3 “Another one” in 11.5? Yes, eBay does. So, yeah, eBay was sneakerhead heaven.
With the introduction of the eBay guarantee of authenticity, it has become even more sneakerhead-friendly. Before shipping to you, every pair of authenticated sneakers goes through a thorough verification process as part of a partnership with Sneaker Con. All sneakers $ 100 or more (over $ 300 or more) are inspected in a state-of-the-art facility where the top experts in the industry review every detail of the product, making sure everything is snuff and where and what it is supposed to be. This includes the shoe, the box and the accessories. Only when everything is found to be legitimate do the authenticators add an eBay Guarantee of Authenticity tag to the pair. This special, NFC-enabled tag is activated with a digital stamp and customized with the details of each couple – much like a microchip for a beloved pet. You can access your authenticity data by holding your NFC-enabled device near the tag. Rare, retro, or just released, your next pair is guaranteed to have more authentic, cleaner walks on eBay.
Authentication also works the other way around, which means sellers can do their business too, rest assured that they are not being scammed by unscrupulous buyers. When a pair of verified sneakers is returned, they first go straight to the authentication center, where the Sneaker Con experts will make sure you get back exactly what you sold and not get scammed with a less good looking counter. You can sell sneakers for free starting at $ 100 and be sure to find the broadest possible buying audience: 183 million potential customers. With such a buyer base and eBay’s authentication guarantee, you are responsible for your own sales experience.
The art of collecting sneakers is a lifestyle that requires passion, intelligence, and a lot of time and energy. Let eBay check all the boxes for authentication. Spend your time and energy wisely on everything else, such as enjoying the thrill of the chase – not the boredom of paperwork.
