Here’s the thing: we all love to look a lot more boujee than we really are. But, let’s be real, we can’t always afford that. As sneakerheads, it’s even WORSE! Luxury sneakers are the most tempting kind of boujee in the game. And they are expensive AF. Therefore, we’ve made it our personal mission to find a way to buy boujee shoes on a budget!
So, this is a broke-ass sneakerhead’s guide to luxury. But, you have to know something. Luxury won’t come cheap, even when we’re trying to make it affordable. Sometimes affordable means under retail. However, other times, affordable means less than SUPREME resale. This means, either way, you better break out your piggy bank for this! Boujee doesn’t come for free.
If you don’t have the money for it though, we’ve got you covered. When in shortage of cash, you can always rely on sneaker reselling! It is the only easy and quick way to make fast, extra cash to support your boujee binge. Do you even have any idea how much MONEY sneaker resellers make? Click on the button below to find out!
PS – if you find these kicks to be too expensive, keep reading for a boujee alternative!

Balenciaga Speed 2.0
BLACK WHITE (2020)
Retail Price: $825

Next, yet another Balenciaga! However, this one saves you a lot more money than the previous Triple S. The Balenciaga Speed 2.0 – in a very classic colorway – are the perfect boujee shoes on a budget for you. You’ll be saving an average of around $166!

Virgil Abloh’s sneakers will always have a special place in every sneakerhead’s heart. And so, owning a pair of his kicks makes you fancy regardless! But, since we’re still talking about boujee shoes on a budget, we’ve got his Off-White Out-Of-Office! The brand Off-White is – on its own – one of the best high-end streetwear brands in the game. Totally worth the price tag.
WHITE PINK (2020)
Retail Price: $1,100

So, does anything scream boujee more than DIOR? Dior sneakers! When high-end fashion brands actually embraced sneakers, the entire game changed! Truly the best time to be alive and boujee. Now, THESE do not come cheap, dear friends. But, some luxury sneakers resale for THOUSANDS of dollars on the resale market. Paying an average of $11 over retail, ain’t a big deal – especially if you’re paying a grand!
DANIEL ARSHAM NEWSPAPER (2020)
Retail Price: $990
Average Resale: $1,135
Also, another Dior option would be the Dior B23 with Daniel Arsham! Now this time, you’re gonna have to pay more than an average of $11. So, technically speaking these boujee shoes on a budget might exceed the budget a little. Totally worth it though!
GG SUPREME TIGERS (2019)

Average Resale: $618
Finally, ending things on a luxury high note with Gucci! You know, the best thing about finding boujee shoes on a budget is that they’ll ALWAYS be boujee. This isn’t like copping ugly sneakers that no one likes. These kicks speak for themselves. And, at $32 under retail for a luxury sneaker, it’s a great bargain.
BUT, if you’ve suffered an aneurysm because of the prices of these sneakers, we get it. For boujee shoes on a budget, they’re still outrageously expensive. However, lucky for you, you live in a world where the lines of boujee are a bit blurry. Nowadays, you can rock Js and people will find you luxurious!
