We compare the OG retail prices and current average resale price of Yeezys from both time periods.

What Are Yeezys?

Remember when Air Yeezy was still under Nike and Kanye first debuted the Nike Air Yeezy 1 at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards in 2008? A lot has changed since then, like West changing partnerships to work with Adidas instead, on the Yeezy brand in 2013. Now, Yeezys have joined the ranks in dropping some of the most hyped releases over the years that are well-coveted by sneakerheads worldwide. As Kanye West owns 100% of the brand, he reportedly earns between $150 to $200 million from the brand every year. This meant rising prices not just in the retail prices, but also resale prices on some of West’s sneakers. Here’s our compilation of some of the price comparisons of Yeezy’s most sought-after drops between its original retail prices and the current average resale prices (in USD), which you can also cop on Ox Street today.

Best Kanye Yeezy Releases And How Much Are They?

Nike Air Yeezy Era

For fans of the OG pre-Adidas days, the Nike Air Yeezys and Nike Air Yeezy 2s are rare finds on the resale market that are worth a lot more than their original retail price, and understandably so. They will never be rereleased since the end of West’s partnership with Nike, hence there are only a limited number of pairs available around the world that were copped by lucky ones back then.

Yeezy Size Guide

Having trouble sizing your Yeezys? As each silhouette is different, "How do Yeezys fit?" is a common question we get. Here is a size chart to get an idea as Yeezys are quite standard when it comes to sizing, but do also keep in mind which model you are getting. For example, Yeezy 350 V2s and Yeezy 380s tend to fit small while Yeezy 500 and Yeezy 700 are known to be true to size.

Grab that pair of Yeezys you have been thinking about at Ox Street today, we are sure it will be worth it.
