StockX is a sneaker online marketplace, where collectors and enthusiasts buy and sell sneakers. This platform allows buyers to find out information about the shoes they are interested in (size, release date), as well as the price at which others are selling them. Sellers can also find out if their products have sold or not on StockX, so they won’t be left stranded with unsold inventory that nobody wants to buy.
Can You Sell Used Shoes on Stockx
You can only sell shoes on StockX if they’re new/deadstock. It’s also possible for sneakers to be sold on Stockx if they’ve been tried once or twice. This is considered deadstock if you go through their terms of sale.
Sneakerheads who are used to the resale game might question whether you can buy used shoes on StockX. We aren’t talking about insanely soiled kicks—StockX will not allow you to sell used shoes on their platform. But if you have a pair of Jordans from your college days or some Adidas Stan Smiths that have been sitting in the back of your closet for years, there are ways to make money off them and turn a profit.
How does StockX Define Deadstock Sneakers?
There’s a lot of uncertainty when it comes to defining exactly what “deadstock” means. According to StockX, “deadstock” sneakers are those that are unworn and authentic. The deadstock sneakers will come complete with a box, the box lid, a label that will include details such as shoe size. The box could also include additional accessories such as laces. StockX still doesn’t accept factory seconds on their website but there is a section for B-grades on their website.
As with any other sneaker inspection, you can expect some to pass without necessarily having laces, not tried to fit, and having a few manufacturing defects. Some of the imperfections are unavoidable but doesn’t make the sneaker less appealing. It is worth noting that the deadstock sneaker should come in the original box if it’s to be accepted on StockX.
For older pairs of deadstock, some of the common complaints include discoloration, yellowing, and lack of structural integrity.
How to Spot Fake StockX Tags For Sneakers
Fake StockX tags are always an issue. The fast-paced world of fashion is tough enough with real stock, so the last thing you want to deal with is counterfeits. To make things more difficult, fake StockX tags can be very convincing – if you don’t know what signs to look for, it can be hard to tell them apart from the real thing.
On StockX, a purchase will have to be authenticated before the buyer can get it. Once the product has been deemed authentic, it will get a green tag.
Positioning of the Tag
One of the ways you can know if the sneaker is authentic is by checking the positioning of the tag. StockX will place the tag on the right shoe. As much as a lot of people are aware, it can help make the research process a lot easier.
Fake StockX Tag Features
Fake StockX Tag colors and styles often sync with the items of the seller’s line. You may receive a black tag with an orange “eBay” logo, for example. This is a clear indicator that the item has been marked up to make it worth more than its original retail value. A fake tag is also a clear indicator that something is awry with your product’s authenticity.
