eBay Sneaker Drop w/La La Anthony, DJ Skee, and Jacques Slade Launches

Last week, eBay announced “The Sleigh Drop,” a new sneaker sales event that offers exclusive access to some of the world’s coolest collections. Throughout the holiday season, three renowned sneakerheads – La La Anthony, DJ Skee and Jacques Slade – will bring their impressive collections of rare kicks to eBay, where a sneaker is bought every 4 seconds. 

This series of drops kicks off with sneaker seller SoleStage listing 700+ pairs of highly-coveted kicks from DJ Skee’s closet, like the Air Jordan 1 Retro High Off-White and the Nike Air Yeezy 2 NRG Pure Platinum. New items from Skee’s collection will be released every Friday during the month of November. 

“This holiday looks really different, and these drops give sneakerheads access to highly coveted pairs that you can’t get anywhere else,” said Garry Thaniel, General Manager of Sneakers at eBay. “Supply chain challenges have reshaped the season, and shoppers are craving the rare, the unique and the hard-to-find, especially when it comes to enthusiast categories like sneakers.”  

eBay will continue to give the gift of grails throughout the month of December, dropping the personal collections of Jacques Slade on December 3 and La La Anthony on December 17. eBay shoppers can visit eBay.com/TheSleighDrop to browse the collections.
