Every now and then, a few monster sneaker releases come along that sort of fly under the radar. It sometimes takes a few months, but eventually the public starts to pay attention. March and April 2021 saw a tons of hot new kicks hit the virtual shelves, so we want to make sure you don’t miss out on the worthwhile styles.

In this week’s episode of Complex and In The Know’s The Flip, host Racks Hogan breaks down which of the new kicks on the resale market are actually worth it.

The ASAP Nast X Reebok Classic Leather Legacy is the newest of the bunch, launching on April 2, 2021. These sandy taupe, purple and black sneakers originally retailed for $100, but now go for as low as $84 on the resale market.

“At a retail price of $80, I’mma just say it like this: It’s probably a safe bet to go ahead and grab these even if you like ’em and you’re trying to flip ’em,” Racks confidently said during the episode.

In fact, he added that these may go for even double the retail value on the resale market.

“So, it’s a double edged sword right here because at $80, they’re definitely probably going to go for a little bit over,” he added. “I could at least see them doing like, maybe double.”

Next up are the Nike Air Structure Triax ’91 in the classic OG “Infrared” colorway, which Racks calls “an actual personal favorite.” Racks is such a fan that he dubbed these “one of the most comfortable, cool sneakers to have during the spring and summer.”

That’s not all — he even threw these bad boys on the coveted The Flip “Hot List” because “true sneakerheads” consider this release one of the best to “grab and stash.”

Lastly, there’s the Nike Cosmic Unity “Space Hippie” that, according to Racks, is “actually trash.” He’s not being shady; these sneakers are made from recycled materials. While he admits it’s a cool-looking sneaker, it’s not considered the most valuable as “all models of this shoe that have released are available in almost every size.”

“I think that the Cosmic Unity Space Hippie will be trash that sits in Nike’s warehouses,” he added.
