Soul2Sole:DJ~AM shoe auction

DJ Adam Goldstein (aka DJ~AM) died in August 2009. Part of his estate was a large collection of shoes which numbers in the hundreds including Nike, Adidas, Converse, Reebok and BAPE sneakers. He started collecting over 10 years ago. From today many will be auctioned on eBay. The proceeds of the 800 pairs of the DJ’s sneakers for the sale will benefit Goldstein’s namesake non-profit, the DJ AM Memorial Fund. The DJ AM Memorial Fund maintains the legacy of Adam Goldstein through extending his commitment to helping others struggling with addiction. The online auction will begin at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15, and continue though Monday Dec. 16.

In addition to the online auction, LA-based sneaker shop Undefeated (aka UNDFTD) will showcase 18 pairs of Goldstein’s sneakers at their La Brea, Santa Monica and Silverlake stores. The shoes put on display will not be included in the online auction.
