eBay issues a call for the most sought-after grails, culminating with the release of a curated collection by Stadium Goods.
Ebay is kicking off the first-ever community sneaker drop later this month, inviting sneaker enthusiasts everywhere to list their most coveted pairs,it easier for consumers to find their grails. As part of the drop, sneakerheads can also look to score eBay exclusive prices on select styles direct from Adidas, Stadium Goods and Reebok, all with free shipping.
"Sneakerheads relentlessly chase new additions to their collections, especially with the releases slated for June," says Ebay senior director of fashion Renee Paradise. "We wanted to offer a new way to bring together the best selection of rare pairs and trending collabs in one destination for our community of sneaker fans—to create the ultimate 'drop' that only Ebay could deliver."
Ebay’s drop will culminate on Wednesday, June 27 at 7:00AM PT, when a curated collection of scouted kicks - from rare grails to trending styles - will be revealed at eBay.com/SneakerDrop.
