Specifically, if you are in possession of the Nike SB What The Dunk model, you’ll be pleased to hear that while it was originally worth £91 when it was released, it’s now worth £3,793, meaning it’s gone up 4067% in value.
Meanwhile, the Kanye West x Louis Vuitton trainers, at £22,763, are the most valuable in the world. In fact, celebrity collaborations seem to be where the money’s at, as the Chanel x Pharrell x adidas NMD Hu trainers are worth an impressive £10,619, whilst pretty much all the Nike Yeezy styles are worth a few gand.
Our love for all things retro seems to know no bounds either, as the Air Jordan 5 retro sneakers are valued at just under £4k, whilst the Nike Air Mags are worh over £11k.
Of course, all of this is based on the trainers being in mint condition, but if you do have any of the below, you might be sitting on a small fortune.

It also depends on what size they are, according to Matthieu Le Maux is a French sneaker expert and the author of 1000 Sneakers.
He says, ‘A model in men’s size 42 to 44 (8 to 10 – UK, 9 to 11 – US) will be way more popular because a majority of men are wearing shoes in this range of sizes. It will probably be more expensive to find sneakers in these sizes than for bigger or smaller sizes/.
