This article will go more in-depth about how Yeezys perform on the aftermarket, how long to hold for and which ones to buy if you’re a reseller.

Which Yeezys should you hold until prices go up?
You should hold all Yeezys, if possible, until the prices go up. Yeezys always trend upward eventually. They are one of the best sneakers to resell in 2022.
Historically, every Yeezy other than YZY QNTM basketball sneakers go up in value. Even the QNTM sneakers usually go up, but they take much longer than other models. That means these prices for these Yeezy models all go up:
- Yeezy Boost 350 V2
- Yeezy Boost 380
- Yeezy Boost 700
- Yeezy 700 V3
- Yeezy Boost 700 MNVN
- Yeezy Foam Runner
Another Yeezy model that doesn’t really go up in value quickly enough to invest in is the Yeezy 500 High. These are sort of like the boot Yeezys. You won’t see Yeezy 500 Highs a lot and if you do, I suggest not investing in them or trying to resell them. They just aren’t a popular model.
Some of the best Yeezys that go up in value the most are the Foam Runners. Foam Runners have been skyrocketing in value since the first colorways released and show no signs of slowing down. They immediately resell for good money and quickly climb in value during the following months. Purchasing Foam Runners is a great investment in both the short term and long term.
However, every Yeezy eventually goes up in price and value over time. Just keep in mind that Yeezy sneakers with Boost technology in the midsole are the first and fastest to go up in value. Colorways of these sneakers also matter a lot when it comes to which Yeezys go up in price.
Will Yeezys go up in price?
Yes, you can almost guarantee Yeezys will go up in price. Take a look at StockX’s graphs for any Yeezy sneaker and you’ll likely see an upward trend.
Even Yeezys that aren’t popular go up in price. It’s due to simple supply and demand. Even if demand isn’t high for unpopular pairs, eventually the supply of new pairs in the world will decrease to the amount where they become rare. When this happens, the price for Yeezys and other sneakers starts to rise.
So yes, Yeezys go up in price over time. Especially in bae sizes. Finding out how long that time for them to go up is the tough part.
How long should you hold Yeezys for?
Holding Yeezys for at least a year will result in the best resell prices. You can hold Yeezys for even longer than a year to sell them at higher prices, but the 1 year mark is usually when they start to climb in value.
Obviously, this timeframe depends on which Yeezy colorway and model we’re talking about. Some models go up in value faster than others. It’s important to note which model and colorway you’re holding before you decide if it’s worth having for a year.
If you want to be safe, holding Yeezys for at least a year is your best bet. After that time, look up prices for the Yeezys you own and find out how much they’ve gone up in value.
Reselling Yeezys or Jordans?
If you want to know whether Yeezys or Jordans are the more profitable sneaker brand to resell, it all depends on what you’re aiming for. In 2017, Yeezys resold for much more than most Air Jordans. However, since then Jordan retros have taken the crown back.
Nowadays, certain Yeezys will resell for a lot of money but mostly Jordans and Nike collaborations are the best sneakers to resell. This could change over the years as trends come and go.
The Nike SNKRS app and Adidas Confirmed app or similarly difficult to win on, so there’s no point in choosing to be a Yeezy or Jordan reseller. My suggestion is to go for both. Try to resell any hype sneaker you can get your hands on, it doesn’t really matter much if they are Yeezys, Jordans or anything else. Sell what makes you money because the goal here is to get paid.
Bottom line: Yeezys are a good long-term hold
In my opinion, Adidas Yeezys sneakers are better in the long term these days than in the short term. Sure, you might find Yeezys like the ‘Dazzling Blue’ and ‘Bred’ 350 V2s that immediately resell for hundreds more than retail.
But for the most part, we’re always seeing the same models release in slightly different colorways. These similar colorways usually always go up in about a year’s time but don’t resell for much immediately after they release.
In general, if you’re ever unsure about a pair of sneakers you’ve bought, hold them for a year. Most Jordans, Yeezys and limited Nikes go up in value over the 12 months after they are released.
Of course, do this only if you have the financial ability to hold these sneakers for a year. If it’s going to financially burden you to hold these sneakers for a year then sell them for what you can and get your money back. It’s better to not tie your money up in a pair of sneakers for a year and try with a different pair of shoes.
