Many sneakers initially have a high resale value and over time, lose it due to a loss in hype or just because that shoe goes out of style eventually. On the other hand, there are sneakers that appreciate. Today, we’ll be going through our list of the best shoes that will rise in value in 2022.
Stay tuned as we go through them!
The reselling market is as strong as ever as we see hyped releases such as the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Reverse Mocha that will be released along with others. You can see them here on our list of July 2022’s Best Sneakers To Resell.
If you hold them long enough, some of these sneakers may even rise in value if they were not as profitable initially. Let’s get right to it!
Air Jordan 1 High OG Stage Haze
- Retail Price: $170
- Average Resell: $220
- Release Date: Saturday, July 2nd, 2022
- Colorway: White/Black-Grey Fog-Bleached Coral
- Style Code: 555088-108
The “Grey Fog” colorway of the Air Jordan 1 High Stage Haze features a color scheme of grey, white, and black. This will be a part of the upcoming “Stage Haze” pack along with a few additional pairs of sneakers.
The perforated toe boxes, side panels, and collars of the sneakers are constructed with pristine white leather and are decorated with black Jordan Wings symbols, whereas the toes and eye stays are made of black cracked leather.
Black leather Swooshes are used to cover the side panels, while the titular grey fog suede is used to cover the backs.
Nylon tongues are embellished with the salmon “Nike Air” emblems to match the insoles of the sneaker. White midsoles and grey and white outsoles complete the design.
On the secondary market, these are currently being sold for $220 but they might rise in value if you can hold them long enough.

Nina Chanel x Air Jordan 2 Gym Red
- Retail Price: $250
- Average Resell: $340
- Release Date: Friday, July 8th, 2022
- Colorway: White/Gym Red-Gym Red-Sail-Black
- Style Code: DQ0558-160
With all these releases, it seems like the Air Jordan 2 might truly be Jordan Brand’s rising star. Also included in the Nina Chanel collaboration is a Gym Red Air Jordan 2 High!
The uppers include crisp white leather side panels with perforations around the toes with grey tipped toes.
The collars are likewise covered in smooth leather, and the side panels that tuck beneath the red heels are covered in textured leather.
White necks are covered by black laces, which also offer contrast and tongues with a unique red embossed logo. Grey/red outsoles and sail midsoles complete the look.
On the secondary market, these sneakers are reselling for average prices of around $340 per pair which is almost $100 in gross profits. If you can wait long enough and there are no more collaborations, the value of these may increase quickly.
Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 Low Reverse Mocha
- Retail Price: $150
- Estimated Resell: $1,500+
- Release Date: Thursday, July 21st, 2022
- Colorway: SAIL/UNIVERSITY RED-RIDGE ROCK
- Style Code: DM7866-162
After their hugely successful collaboration with Fragment, Travis Scott and Jordan Brand made a comeback and reissued their original Mocha hue, which was also made available for their high-top version.
The toes, eye stays, and heel tabs of the Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Reverse Mocha are made of white tumbled leather, whereas the side panels and ventilated toe boxes are mocha in color. A unique touch is provided by regular leather Swooshes on the medial sides and inverted leather Swooshes on the lateral sides.
Mocha outsoles and sail midsoles complete the design.
These sneakers will probably earn you a small fortune if you can manage to acquire them because they are valued at over 10 times their retail price on the secondary market. Since this is a special “reverse” colorway, they will probably appreciate over time.
A Ma Manière x Air Jordan 2 Sail Burgundy
- Retail Price: $225
- Average Resell: $340
- Release Date: Thursday, May 5th, 2022
- Colorway: Sail/Black-Burgundy Crush
- Style Code: DO7216-100
Similar to the previous partnership on the Air Jordan 1, the upper of this Air Jordan 2 is made of leather in shades of Sail and Burgundy with hints of snakeskin patterns.
On the toes, side panels, collars, and eye stay of the uppers, there is a cracked leather material in a Sail hue.
The sides are perforated, and black eyelet panels and laces add contrast. The tongues feature black Jordan Wings logos, while the midsoles are made of black snakeskin. The outsoles are also black. Additionally, these sneakers have unique packaging as an added bonus.
Although these sneakers are great for resale, they also might increase in value over time if the brand has no further collaborations. However, that does not seem like the case, and holding these may be risky.
Supreme x Nike SB Dunk High Brazil
- Retail Price: $128
- Average Resell: $340
- Release Date: Thursday, March 3rd, 2022
- Colorway: VARSITY MAIZE/PINE GREEN-WHITE
- Style Code: DN3741-700
This Supreme x Nike collaboration is inspired by the original Nike SB Dunk High Pro Brazil which was released exclusively in the Japanese market back in 2002. Those sneakers are highly valuable today and some of that shine permeates through these SB Dunks as well.
These feature leather construction with pine green on the toes, eye stays, and heel overlays as well as the side Swooshes. Meanwhile, Varsity Maize which gives off a mustard tinge covers the toe boxes, side panels, and collars.
“No <3” is embroidered near the toes while “By Any Means” embroidery appears on the heels of the shoe. Tongues with Supreme branding, white midsoles, and green outsoles finish off the design.
On websites such as StockX, these are currently being sold for around $340 and perhaps in a few years, they’ll also appreciate like the Japanese variants from back in 2002.
Louis Vuitton x Air Force 1 Low White
- Retail Price: €2000
- Average Resell: $9,300
- Release Date: 2022
- Colorway: White
- Style Code: N/A
In order to demonstrate how a white monogram iteration was created, LV published a brief movie and gorgeous image gallery. Detailed images show the many parts of the luxury calf leather uppers, how well the shoes were put together, the last which was used to ensure the shape of the shoes, and more.
The high-fashion label planned to add nine more versions to its lineup in June after collaborating with Sotheby’s earlier this year to debut the first colorway. Seven low-top variations and two mid-cut options were included in the capsule. The collection includes two-toned designs that honor Abloh’s rainbow pattern along with white and black suede Monogram inserts.
These sneakers in particular feature a white upper with LV monograms all over as well as the tongues, the sides of which don golden Swooshes and LV branding.
Crisp white laces with “LACET” descriptions of Off-White’s involvement while similar texts are also featured on the medial sides. White midsoles with “Air” branding in both Nike and Off-White fashion as well as white outsoles finish off the design.
On the secondary market, these are currently worth over $9,000 but may also appreciate even further.
Nike Dunk Low Jackie Robinson
- Retail Price: $110
- Average Resell: $600+
- Release Date: Saturday, April 23rd, 2022
- Colorway: RACER BLUE/RACER BLUE COCONUT
- Style Code: DV2122-400
This limited-edition Nike Dunk Low contains several tributes to the famous Jackie Robinson while sporting the Dodgers’ colors.
The side panels and tiny blue Swooshes on the perforated toe boxes of the uppers are made of off-white leather. Robinson’s statements are emblazoned on the overlays, which are made of supple blue leather.
“I’m not bothered about your liking or disliking me,” is printed all over. The insoles include a message that reads, “All I ask is that you respect me as a human being.”
Pale blue suede Swooshes also embellish the sneaker. The design is completed with white/blue laces, white midsoles with blue stitching, and black outsoles.
Although these are still worth over $600, I believe that in a few years, these will appreciate even more.
With that, we finish off our list of the best shoes that will rise in value in 2022!
