2015 saw the sneaker reselling market crossing the $1 billion USD mark in the United States alone, and @KickPostersHighsnobiety and sneaker data site Campless have brought out some infographics that break down the most valuable shoes to hit the resale market, as well as the kicks that made the most money on the secondary market overall. The YEEZY Boost 750 “Triple Black” came out on top as eBay’s most expensive sneaker, averaging an extortionate $1,876 USD at resale. The “Triple Black” was also the lowest grossing Kanye West-designed silhouette, suggesting that it was given the most limited release of all of the colorways.

Supreme’s Jordan 5 collaboration made its way into the 17 and 20 spots, while Don C’s Jordan 2 collaboration was the only Jordan in the top 10 — all of which hints at a waning interest in resold Jordans; this may be occurring as a byproduct of relentless retro releases saturating the market. All illustrations were created by graphic designer Dan Freebairn (also known as @KickPosters).

Take a look at the infographics above and be sure to check out The Daily Show‘s report on the rise of the sneaker reselling market.
