Shoemetrics

The free, standardized system for grading the condition
of pre-worn sneakers

Why Shoemetrics?

It is estimated that over 200,000 pre-worn sneakers are sold globally through private party sales every day. Of these sales, the majority of buyers pay far more or far less than the true value of the shoes.

The main criteria that dictates the price you should pay is the condition of the shoe. Often the descriptors such as "like new", or "vvvvds" are shown in ads, which are difficult to measure.

Shoemetrics takes the guesswork and subjectivity out of grading sneakers, so that you can rest assured knowing that the condition of the sneakers you want to buy or sell is accurately represented.

How it works:

The prospective sneaker buyer asks the seller to grade a shoe on the Shoemetrics scale. Within minutes, the seller calculates the grade using our free Shoematics Sneaker Grader tool, and provides the number grade to the buyer. The buyer is confident in the description and agrees to pay a fair price for the condition of the shoe.

The Shoemetrics grading system uses a 1 - 10 scale, comprised of the following weighted scores:
