We know what we want and the only thing we can’t afford are shoes that are too expensive.
And we’re just starting to learn the difference between the affordable and the high-dollar.
Read More to get a sense of how much it costs to buy these items.
The first thing we did was look up how much shoes are listed on eBay.
We found that the average selling price of a pair of sneakers is $140, but they are more expensive than what we’re used to.
For instance, we found that a pair that was listed at $150 was actually worth $130.
The next thing we checked was whether a shoe was offered in a specific color.
As you can see in the photo above, a pair was offered for $135 in a dark-colored color.
We then looked up a pair’s retail price online, and it turns out that they are sold in a wide range of prices.
For example, a $140 pair of shoes could be listed for $130 in a light-colored pair, $120 in a black pair, or even $100 in a navy pair.
We did this to make sure we could compare the price of each pair of Nike Air Jordans and other high-priced sneakers on the market.
The only way to know if the price you see on eBay is actually a good deal is to buy the shoes yourself.
For this exercise, we compared a pair from Nike and a pair we found for $150 on eBay (shown below).
Nike Air Jordan 5.0s, $125.99 on eBay The Nike Air 4.0, $150.00 on eBay, from the top of the listing.
The Nike Jordan 4.1, $170.00, from below the listing price.
The top Nike Air, Nike Air 2.0 and Nike Air 1.0 are for sale, and the lower model is for sale for $100.

As a rule of thumb, the Nike Air 7.0 was the cheapest option in our comparison.
That’s because the Air Jordan 7.1 is the most expensive model on the list.
The lower-priced Air Jordan 8.0 is a great option for those looking to save money, but you may find it too big and expensive for your budget.
