If you're a sneaker fan like us, you probably wonder where to best places to buy Jordans are, especially as the sneakers are some of the most popular and highly sought-after shoes ever made.
This is, in part, due to the immense popularity of Michael Jordan himself who's widely regarded as one of the greatest basketball players, if not sports athletes, of all time.
So, to help you find your own iconic pair, we've compiled a list of some of our favorite retailers for both new and old Jordans based on their selections, returns policies, and ease of use.
Best places to buy Jordans
The site is simple to use, allowing you to filter all things Jordan by simply clicking on the Jumpman logo in the top left.
Moreover, Nike has a 60-day (30 days in the UK) returns policy in which you can try out your purchase before deciding on whether the Jordans in question are right for you.
As a result, we feel it's definitely the place to go if you're looking to pick up some of the latest Air Jordan arrivals.
StockX effectively treats reselling sneakers like the stock market, providing you with information on how prices fluctuate over time so you can come to a more informed decision on whether it's the right time to pick up a new pair.
Not only that, but StockX authenticates every purchase to ensure the Jordans you receive are legitimate so you don't end up spending money on counterfeits.
Unfortunately, being a sneaker resale site, it doesn't currently offer returns. However, the company does recommend reselling your Jordans through the site if you're not completely sold on your purchase.
The site makes buying sneakers simple by allowing you to bid on or buy a pair of Jordans instantly, then GOAT sends you your purchase after subjecting them to the company's thorough authentification process.
Furthermore, the company offers a 3-day returns policy for New In Box, New No Box, and GOAT Clean purchases that are in the same condition as when shipped, helping to make sure you're completely satisfied with your order.
Ultimately, we feel GOAT is a simple-to-use sneaker auction site that makes buying both new and old Jordans a little bit easier.
Flight Club was first established in New York in 2005 and has since become one of the leading places to buy some of the most hyped sneaker drops around.
The website makes finding Jordans simple by allowing you to filter, not only for a specific colourway, but also for Air Jordans, then again by model via the drop-down menu in the top right.
Once again, being a secondary sneaker market, Flight Club currently states that all sales are final. However, the company does recommend contacting customer support if you have any specific requests or concerns.
On the whole, we feel it's hard to look past Flight Club for some of the most hyped Jordan releases as it is one of the most well-renowned second-hand sneaker stores around.
What we like about the site, in particular, is that the new releases tab allows you to instantly access the latest Jordan arrivals from a simple drop-down menu. This can also help you stay up-to-date with all the latest and best drops.
Laced is another marketplace for sneakers, so doesn't currently offer returns; however, each purchase is authenticated to ensure the Jordans you receive are real before sending them to you.
Overall, we believe Laced to be one of the best places to buy Jordans around, especially if you're based in the UK.
Frequently asked questions when buying Jordans
When it comes to buying Jordans, there are usually a ton of questions that pop up.
Don't worry though because we've answered some of the most common queries right here.
Can you send Jordans back after the returns deadline?
The answer to this question varies depending on where you brought your sneakers from.
Nike, for instance, still accepts returns after its deadline as long as the sneakers come back in an unworn condition.
However, most shops tend to not offer full refunds on returns made after their policy deadline.
If you're still unsure, then we'd recommend checking out the help or FAQ section from the website you're planning on buying from to see more information about specific returns.
Can you buy Jordans once they've sold out?
You may feel like your opportunity is gone once the Jordans you're looking to buy sell out. However, you still have two ways in which you can pick up the sneakers.
Firstly, you can wait to see if the Jordans in question are restocked. This is good if you're looking to pick them up for retail; however, it's worth keeping in mind that not every release gets a restock.
When do new Jordans get released?
New and remade Jordans are released pretty much all year round, with Nike themselves often being the ones to confirm the launch dates.
At RealKit though, we look to cover all the latest rumours and release date news ahead of time to keep you informed with all the latest drops.
Release dates can be subject to change though, so we'd recommend keeping that in mind, even if Nike has announced an official launch date.
