These were the most popular sneakers and collectibles in Singapore in 2022

The resale market has accelerated at an unprecedented rate and rightly captured the pulse of sneaker and collectable aficionados. From limited-edition brand capsule drops to iconic merchandise, there is a dedicated space for the sale of resale products, such as online marketplace Novelship, and it is garnering all the right attention, especially in the Southeast Asian region. Of the extensive library of highly sought-after sneakers and collectible figurines, some have been more popular than others in Singapore for 2022.

While over 40 percent of the velocity growth in sports footwear is expected to come from this region, it is also the hub of the iconic high-end collectable collaboration range. For example, BE@RBRICK is seeing resale prices hit up to 1,800 percent above price, making them a good investment option.

At such a rapidly growing rate, fuelled by hot-ticket collaborations and sneaker crossovers, the value of the resale sneaker market is forecast to reach USD 6 billion by 2025, about three times more than that of 2019.

Novelship has emerged to be Asia’s fastest-growing online marketplace for authentic, limited-edition sneakers, apparel and collectables, as the website features over 5,000 sneaker models at a time. From Air Jordans and Nike to Supreme, Champion, Off-White, Balenciaga and Alexander McQueen, there is an array of products on Novelship to choose from. For those looking for figurines, KAWS and BE@RBRICK also have a massive display.

However, after a closer watch of the purchase pattern and interests, an inclination towards basketball shoes has been observed on Novelship, making them one of the most popular sneakers to own in 2022 in Singapore. Meanwhile, figurine collectors have always shown a steady interest.
