There were several other sneaker-related highlights listed in the report. According to StockX, the sneaker with the most trades on release week was the Air Jordan 11 “Cherry,” the top-traded silhouette was the Nike Dunk Low and the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 Low “Brooklyn” had the highest price premium at 912%.
Aside from sneakers, StockX stated in the report that several company records were broken in 2022.
