Sneaker lovers unite! Crazy sad you’ve just missed the last pair of your favorite kicks? No problem, here are the best sites you can buy or sell your favorite sneakers.

There was a time when eBay had the monopoly over good second-hand sneakers online.

Here are the best places to get rare sneakers from, in no particular order.
