Since the NBA All-Star Weekend is coming up and the event has deep ties to the phenomenon of North American sneaker culture, e-commerce platform eBay partners up with Toronto-based artist Briony Douglas to call attention to some of the most popular shoe models of the year. This is timely as the All-Star Weekend is accented by numerous exclusive and luxurious footwear releases. Briony—who is a major sneaker enthusiast herself—is quite excited about the Nike Air Ship x Air Jordan 1 New Beginnings Pack, which debuted on February 12th. The silhouette has "an iconic history as a collector's item" as the sneakers were previously banned from the NBA.
The list is backed by eBay sales data and reveals that the most popular shoe models are the Reebok Pump Omni Lite, the Nike KD 2, the Nike Lebron 15, the Lebraon X, the Nike KD 5, the adidas Crazy 8, the Nike Lebron 9, the Air Jordan 3 Black Cement, the Nike Kobe 7, and the Air Jordan 11.
