I keep hearing about kids making thousands just selling trainers for over the odds. Is this still a thing and where do they source them from? just curious!

    Don't believe anything you see. Probably a Facebook fad posted by people trying to convince others their lives are better than they really are.

    My nephew does it. There are forums and conferences and all sorts of things. A lot of work for not a lot of reward because there are so many of them after each new release,and more times than not you miss out. (edited)

    Not just trainers watches too.

    Manufacturers have cottoned onto it - stick the term 'limited edition' in front of a new product, hype it on social media and you can charge the sheeple that much more.
    I know all about the watches I happen to have a few myself

    Like anything can make money can get burnt. If there isn't massive demand may have to take a big loss or keep for a few years to get a good return some new models are massively inflated at RRP see the prices of the gucci adidas collections so large outlay needed (edited)

    Got Limited Edition trainers advertised on FB Marketplace at the moment, nobody seems bothered (they're a decent price compared to New from the manufacturer).

    Took a few attempts to get the ad published as Facebook doesn't seem to like certain brand names and assumes they're fakes!

    Yeh it's a thing, if you know which trainers to cop or lucky enough to win raffles you can resell at 5 times plus retail price.

    If you can get your hands on the LV Nike AF1 you'll make a tidy profit, already being sold for huge amounts, releases shortly.…BwE

    I buy and sell shoes and clothes for a living, there is money to be made.

    I work with someone who collects limited edition trainers as a sideline. Expect to travel and camp outside sports shops and retailers for a couple of days if you are planning on doing this, seems like a lot of effort for often unpredictable results..

    No real quick money in reselling. It's hard graft just like anything else you would expect consistent returns on.
