25 Years of Inspiration, 25 Custom Kicks

For 25 years, sneakerheads have copped and dropped the dopest kicks on eBay, building a community and making it their own. To celebrate our 25th anniversary, we’ve teamed up with Vashtie Kola, Aleali May and top customizers, Cestlavic, DeJesus, Kickstradomis, Mache, and Sierato, to create 25 pairs of bespoke sneakers inspired by the last 25 years of pop culture.

Vashtie Kola (Va$htie), the first woman to design a pair of Jordans, is a creative force with serious cred in the sneaker game. A filmmaker, artist, designer, and DJ, she pushes boundaries in footwear and beyond. As part of #25Kicks, she partnered with Aleali and Kickstradomis to create the eBay 25th Anniversary shoe.

A style luminary, Aleali May holds sway in celebrity and internet circles alike and was the first woman to collaborate on the design of a unisex Jordan.
