Many resellers profit purely off hyped releases, but that’s not the only factor that can drive up the price of a pair of Air Jordans. Some sneakers have truly special attributes that lead to their sky high values. These are those items that are at the extreme end of the resale market. As always with eBay, proceed at your own risk—this isn’t an endorsement of any of the sellers or their products. But it is a chance to check out some of the most rare and unique Air Jordans currently on the open market.
