The Best Sneakers Of The Year Are Available On eBay, And We’ve Got Lots On Our Holiday Wish List

Presented in partnership with eBay…

It’s the time of year when we’re all looking for the best sneakers of the year. Problem is, lots of retail stores don’t exactly have the rare releases and killer styles that sneakerheads, collectors or, generally speaking, dudes who just like to rep iconic looks want most.

But have no fear, fellas, because eBay is here to save you from missing out on all the kicks you love most. Offering the best Jordans, Yeezys and others to choose from — all with the comfort of eBay’s Authenticity Guarantee, which brings peace of mind knowing you’re getting the sneaks you crave most this holiday season.


What Is eBay’s Authenticity Guarantee?

To put it bluntly, eBay’s Authenticity Guarantee is added security for shoppers to know they’re getting legit items. So when you’re looking for the hottest version of Air Jordans or Yeezys from this holiday season, no need to go down a rabbit hole to figure out if the buyer’s real or not, because eBay’s already got you covered there.

Thanks to a multi-point inspection, eBay authenticators verify the box, sizing labels, soles, stitching, logos, heel tabs, laces, etc., making sure all of you doing online shopping this year have the gift you expect. Take a look below for more details.

  • Third-Party Authentication: eBay partnered with industry leader Sneaker Con to create a new state-of-the-art facility – leveraging the top authenticators in the industry, a robust checklist of product specifications, and best-in-class processes to ensure accuracy and efficiency. With rigorous inspection of the box, shoe, and accessories, the authentication underscores eBay’s commitment to giving shoppers exactly what they want.
  • Proof of Authentication: An eBay Authenticity Guarantee tag will be attached to each pair of sneakers once they have been verified by the authentication partner. The Authenticity Guarantee tag is fastened to the sneaker and activated with a digital stamp of authenticity and customized with the sneakers’ details. By holding your NFC enabled device near the tag you will receive a prompt and be able to view the authenticity report of your sneakers.
  • Verified Returns: For sellers who choose to offer returns, eBay’s sneaker authentication program ensures the exact item initially sold is returned to the seller, via a verified returns process. Returns are shipped back directly to the authentication center, where the third-party experts verify each item and its condition before returning to the seller.


Since we really care about your holiday needs, we’re listing some of our favorite kicks that are currently available on eBay, all of which will go through a thorough inspection to be validated with Authenticity Guarantee. If it’s the best sneakers you’re looking for, these are them!

Nike Air Jordan 11 Retro Jubilee 25th Anniversary

Arguably the most iconic Air Jordan of them all, the Air Jordan 11 Retro Jubilee 25th Anniversary are available now, so go ahead and scoop yours to brag to your buddies about. Featuring the classic patent leather that MJ incorporated so he could wear these with a suit, they’re the ideal choice to add to your collection. Point Blank: Every sneakerhead knows the Air Jordan 11 remains one of the best sneakers ever created.


adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Citrin (Non-Reflective)

Yeezy’s are still as hot as ever, and eBay’s got a bunch of adidas Yeezy Boosts to choose from. One of the trendiest shoes ever released, you may not have been able to drop thousands on these bad boys years ago, but they can be all yours for a couple hundred bucks now. Not too shabby.


Air Jordan 1 Mid (Banned)

Yep, these are the OG of Air Jordans, and the ones that were initially banned by the NBA for breaking the uniform code that the league had in place back then. Jordan didn’t care, and he wore them anyway — and so can you, if you can snatch a pair up on eBay before the holidays.


Air Jordan 14 “Candy Cane”

Michael Jordan’s game-winner in Utah in Game 6 of the 1998 NBA Finals happened in these shoes (albeit in the black color scheme, not the “Candy Cane” option seen here), so you’re bound to make a statement and earn instant respect the moment you walk into a room with these on your feet. Classic and classy with the fine lines of the design, these kicks are absolutely timeless.
