You always wanted to know what exactly Un DS even means? No problem, in our exclusive sneaker dictionary we explain almost all terms and words of the scene. And if you can't find a term, please send us a message and we will help you immediately!
Un DS is the abbreviation for un-deadstock and means the first time you rock or wear the sneaker. Of course, there is also a loss in value when you wear them, which is why many collectors only put their sneakers on in public when they are sure they do not want to resell them.
Pro tip: We've often found that we're a bit overzealous when it comes to new sneakers. The main thing is that the part comes directly to the feet, because “cool and new”. But it is often the case that the shoe is quickly forgotten. It is therefore important to think carefully about whether you only want to wear the shoe because of the brief hype or whether you really like it.
