StockX defines "Deadstock" as a new, unworn pair of sneakers. They are complete with original box including the box lid and the box label indicating the shoe size, as would be acceptable for sale at a retail location. Deadstock sneakers are 100% authentic. Deadstock sneakers also may or may not include additional accessories (such as laces) that were included in the original packaging at purchase, unless noted otherwise. We also do not accept B-grades at this time.
As with sneakers sold at retail, some pairs will pass "Deadstock" inspection despite being unlaced, tried on for fitment, and/or slight manufacturer flaws and imperfections that are uncontrollable. In addition, all "Deadstock" sneakers should include the original box, which may have encountered minimal damage from shipping, discoloration from storage and/or any normal wear and tear due to aging.
Be aware "Deadstock" sneakers can include signs of aging when it comes to older pairs, including slight yellowing and should be worn at your own risk. "Deadstock" sneakers that are over 5 years old, when worn, may experience structural weakness and a lack of durability.
