The second-hand luxury market has existed in Dubai for quite a while, but most people aren’t sure whether they should venture into it. And we can all admit that some of our impulsive buys are the ones we rarely wear, and as much as you want to have it out of your closet, you can’t bring yourself to because you broke the bank for it. Well, now you don’t need to worry about any of that.

During their 10th anniversary celebrations, Level Shoes launched Pre-Loved, a unique service offering rare, luxury, second-hand pieces. Starting this month, Level Shoes customers can resell their pre-loved bags, shoes, small leather goods, and accessories through their website and receive cash or store credit. Whether you’re clearing out your wardrobe, have items that don’t suit your style, or have pieces that remind you of past relationships, Level Shoes Pre-Loved wants you to rid of the old and fall in love with something new.

We all love vintage pieces, especially ones you find in NYC or Paris boutique shops on TikTok, with rare pieces you might not find in Dubai. And that’s where the best part comes in: Level Shoes community members will have access to vintage, one-of-a-kind, or sold-out pieces that no one else can access. To ensure excellent quality and authenticity, Level Shoes meticulously selects each product in the collection through a team of experts.

The secondhand clothing business has become a mainstream part of the fashion world. More and more brands are taking part in the resale segment of the industry as it’s not only more economical to shop for pre-owned goods, but it is also more environmentally friendly.

Until now, Level Shoes has been the only retailer in the region to offer a buyback program and a concierge service, where they pick up your items personally from your home.
