eBay kicks off its first community sneaker drop

eBay has announced its first-ever community sneaker drop. The e-commerce giant has invited sneaker aficionados from all over the world to list their most coveted pairs. A curated selection of rare and trending styles will be revealed in a special page within eBay on June 27, at 7:00 AM Pacific time. Sneakerheads will also be able to score exclusive prices on select styles from Adidas, Reebok and Stadium Gods.

“Sneakerheads relentlessly chase new additions to their collections, especially with the releases slated for June," said Renee Paradise, senior director of Fashion at eBay, in a statement. "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 said more than 1.2 million pairs of sneakers are listed on its platform each day, with a pair purchased every 1.5 seconds.
