Matesbox is a special shoe resale project created back in 2018. The resale market is a treasure hunt. People seek unique and extraordinary ways of expressing themselves in a day-to-day routine. This is where a limited edition shoe market comes along.
Resale is like the print press. People say that it is dying out, and others – that it is already an eternal phenomenon of the modern fashion. Resale is a flip of clothes usually limited, originally sold through the drop system. Long story short, a drop is a system in which the release of things happens in small “portions” at a certain time and place.
What is next?
Then the basics of economics come around: the limited nature of a thing generates excitement and, as a result, increases demand, while the lack of a sufficient number of offers leads to a growth in value. Simply put, a person who bought an item in one of the drops sets his own price, which is often much higher than the original one.
MatesBox is not just an Instagram account with cool sneakers. MatesBox is a community of stylish and like-minded people with common interests. The same passion, same desire, same urge to be unique. There is always a price to pay, but with MatesBox, the price is not that high. The main idea is to show that luxury can be affordable.
The resale market is a hunt for exclusive goods. Here is the way it works: all pairs of sneakers come out in limited edition. People with special scents of fashion or resellers mostly purchase them. In the pursuit of these special products, people would go to any lengths and even hack websites. This is what happened to MatesBox8 months ago. While fighting for their Instagram account, they created another one (https://instagram.com/matesbox_reserve?igshid=123pe8jq4eu2s) and continued sales. In addition, they broaden their product assortment.
Now after some time, they are finally ready to offer their clients an even better service than before.
What can you buy in MatesBox?
Almost all the items that came in limited amounts were sneakers from the Nike and Off-White collections, Adidas Yeezy Boost, Supreme x Louis Vuitton, or items from collaborations with other brands. Products that were released in a limited edition, which means that they will be bought even with a huge mark-up, are sold at three or four, or even ten times more expensive.MatesBox’s policy is to set reasonable prices. So now, in order to become the owner of the desired pair from Kanye West, you do not need to rush through websites on your own, just follow the link, and these guys will do it for you.
This is a store for sneaker history, limited editions and collaborations. MatesBox celebrates youth with provocative designs embodied in simple but high-quality things. You are almost certainly tired of hearing about Supreme, the next Off-White collaboration or the new Yeezy Boost colors every day, trying to figure out which one is really cool. Therefore, MatesBox have found several positions that will most probably catch your eye.
