Best Sneaker Consignment Store, November 2007
While places like Undefeated offer the best in recently released sneaker styles, consignment stores are a true fanatic’s source for rare, unworn kicks. RIF sells one of the trade’s holy grails: the Adidas Superstar 35th-anniversary edition, originally raffled off to 35 fans instead of being sold in stores. Asking price? $1,500. Collectors on a budget can walk out with the $200 Nike Air Max 1 “Animal Pack,” an animal-print pair never released in the United States. RIF’s crosstown competitor, Flight Club LA, carries its own formidable collection, but RIF’s consignment fee (15 percent versus Flight Club’s 20) makes it the better option for sellers.
