Sneakers have been enjoying a renaissance lately.

In fact, with both luxury brands and sportswear labels releasing new styles every week, it’s never been a better time to be a sneakerhead. But shopping for sneakers today does present a unique conundrum: while there are countless ways to cop a pair, from official apps like Nike’s SNKRS to resale platforms like Grailed, actually scoring them is near impossible.

That’s especially true of sneaker offerings from the likes of Nike, Dior and Off-White, which are often sold out in seconds. Let’s not forget that you’re also competing with bots at these sneaker drops, or that there’s always a chance that the limited-edition pair you’ve bought from a reseller is actually fake.

Ox Street asks: why go through all the trouble?

The resale platform aims to change the shopping experience for sneakerheads — especially those in Asia. From its headquarters in Singapore, Ox Street is building a whole new sneaker ecosystem. Getting its supply from trusted resellers and designers alike, Ox Street offers the latest, exclusive kicks from all the biggest names in the sneaker game. We’re talking Nike, Adidas, Air Jordan, Yeezy, Balenciaga, Off-White and many more.

But that’s not all. Ox Street also has its own team of experts to verify that every pair of shoes they sell is legit. They document sneaker designs to the last detail, from the stitching to the construction, and right down to the smell. They also keep an eye out for inconsistencies in counterfeit shoes, so absolutely nothing gets past their authentication process. Knockoffs, after all, are a growing headache for sneakerheads; almost a quarter of all sneakers sold on the online resale market are fake.

Shopping on Ox Street, then, feels like a relief. All of the shoes are authentic, available in brand new condition. You can easily check out the lowest prices for your size, too. The icing on the cake is that Ox Street provides speedy shipping at only S$10, regardless of where you are in Asia. You’ll get your hands on that rare pair you’ve been coveting faster than your go-to sneaker app can say “Sold Out”.

For now, Ox Street boasts a very attractive selection of shoes, including Sean Wotherspoon’s Superstars, the Balenciaga Triple S trainers, Nike x Sacai’s LD Waffle, and the Nike Air Jordan 1 “Tokyo”. The platform also plans on expanding into apparel soon, curating collections from the best brands in global luxury streetwear.

Until then, you can get on board Ox Street (new sign-ups will enjoy S$25 off their first purchase) to keep tabs on the latest sneaker drops.
