I remember back in the early 2000s it was easy to buy & sell kicks.

No flakers. No astronomical fees. The market was good for both sellers and buyers.

Over time I feel the online secondary/classifieds markets has diminished.

Listings for Jordans can sit for a long time.

Currently on CL & Ebay things arent moving as planned.

I cant post on NT because I havent been here in years and my old email/SN mustve been deleted.

Can anybody shed light on the secondary market for shoes?

Im not a reseller its just my shoes dont fit and returning shoes means I dont get a refund on shipping charges.

Ive pursued trades but its just not worth the trouble, time, and money.

So, your feet are still growing? or your shoes shrunk.

such a blatant thread to sell your grapes.

just sell them below retail, take a loss.
The reason I thought of this thread was because of my experience with the grapes and other Nikes Ive bought. Coming from your experience have you sold shoes and taken a loss? I really do want to get rid of them. I came to this general thread to seek advice from experienced consumers. Your almighty internet insight speaks volumes with so little words

Im a 9.5 in general and havent bought shoes in a while. Last time I bought Jordans was when Cool Grey IVs came out. I dont have the time to buy in-store and have made 5 purchases online. I wouldnt say im a sneaker head but thought Id try a get thoughts about this on NT.
I REMEMBER THE GOOD OL DAYS WHEN YOU GUYS POSTED ON ISS
I dont know what ISS is... nor do i have the time to google/research ISS. Irrelevent if there is no explanation

Thanks Tecca. Im just trying to get a feel for today's market. I think the market will start to pick up more and more as I see more spending going on in the US economy. Its just a waiting game but im impatient.The fact that I have shoes I cant wear annoys me.
