What Are the Best Sneakers 2023 Brought?

So, here’s a rundown of the best sneakers of 2023 based on different criteria. Oh, and we definitely are giving you our very biased and subjective opinion that nobody asked for!

Best Sneakers of 2023: Resale Value

Although there weren’t many multi-thousand-dollar-value sneakers, the ones we got were WORTH it. From the glamorous Tiffany & Co. to Travis Scott and the Chinese New Year, the top 3 are interesting. But one thing is in common between all of them: the Nike signature.

The Best Sellers

When we consider how hype a pair of sneakers is, we usually look at the resale value. But what if we told you that there’s more to it than that? Demand is a great indicator of how popular kicks are! And these three Jordans certainly kicked a$$ when it came to the number of sales since they dropped.

Weird Kicks Make Heads Turn

Of course, we gotta mention how the year kicked off with some of the… most interesting kicks. And that’s a very nice way to say it. MSHCF naturally took 2 out of 3 spots, while Jordan Brand makes an appearance with a special pair! They’re not all ugly, trust us on this one.

Collabs Be Makin’ Money!

Another factor that makes a pair of sneakers popular, valuable, and in demand, is collaborative efforts! When two popular brands collaborate, or an artist with a brand, or anything that includes a big fanbase, the kicks become a hit. Naturally, 2023 was no different, so here are three of the coolest partnerships! PS: We wanted to include Travis Scott, but his Js are already up there, so there’s that.
