Highsnobiety and StockX has crunched their data and unveiled the most valuable sneakers for 2018’s second quarter. Based on sales between April 1 to June 30, Pharrell Williams takes gold in the standings, with his bullion-blessed China-exclusive adidas Hu NMD coming out on top by a margin the size of the Great Wall.

The uber rare 300-pair exclusive was followed by another Skateboard P design — the N.E.R.D Hu NMD 'Homecoming' — while 2 Chainz and Versace’s Chain Reaction colourways feature prominently in the top 10. Other notable mentions include the adidas x Sneakersnstuff Futurecraft 4D and Balenciaga’s Triple S in white.

  1. adidas x Pharrell Hu NMD ‘China’ pack (Gold) — $7,817 USD
  2. adidas x Pharrell x ‘N.E.R.D’ Hu NMD ‘Homecoming’ — $2,079
  3. Versace x 2 Chainz Chain Reaction ‘Spotted’ — $1,517
  4. Versace x 2 Chainz Chain Reaction ‘Red’ — $1,375
  5. Balenciaga Triple S (White, 2018 reissue) — $1,180
  6. Versace x 2 Chainz Chain Reaction ‘Plaid’ — $1,150
  7. Versace x 2 Chainz Chain Reaction ‘Black’ — $1,141
  8. Balenciaga Triple S ‘Red/Black’ — $977
  9. adidas x Sneakersnstuff Futurecraft 4D — $939
  10. Converse x Off-White Chuck Taylor All-Star — $928

As expected, Jordan Brand still dominates the market-share rankings, occupying all spots in the top 5 for Q2. Virgil Abloh’s University of North Carolina—inspired Off-White Air Jordan 1s ranked first, accounting for more than a quarter of all sneakers sold on StockX during the period.

  1. Off-White x Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘Unc’ — 27 per cent
  2. Air Jordan 1 Retro ‘Homage to Home’ — 13 per cent
  3. Travis Scott x Air Jordan 4 ‘Cactus Jack’ — 12 per cent
  4. Air Jordan 1 ‘Shadow’ (2018) — 11 per cent
  5. Air Jordan 1 Satin ‘Shattered Backboard’ (W) — 9 per cent
