StockX is a Detroit based company primarily known for its e-commerce platform StockX.com. The company was founded by Dan Gilbert, Greg Schwartz, Josh Luber and Chris Kaufman in 2015, with an emphasis on the sneaker resale market.. After a $110 million round of Series C funding in 2019, the company is valued at over $1 billion. The platform works similar to a stock market, where buyers place bids and sellers place asks. When a bid and an ask match, an item is sold. Separated into 4 categories: sneakers, watches, handbags, and streetwear.
As StockX became the most popular online sneaker reselling platform, allegations regarding replica sneakers/streetwear passing through their authentication process began to appear. It has been a popular outlet to buy and sell hype products like shoes, clothing and even accessories.
