Hey! I just snapped some pics and put together all the shoes I have from AM's collection. 1. This is the first pair of AM's kicks I owned. I purchased it from the eBay auction. It was one of the cheapest pairs I could find that I really liked. I was 14 at the time, so I really couldn't afford much else haha. I haven't been able to find much about the shoe on google, so I don't know if AM cut the swoosh off, or if that's how it was made. Either way, I love this shoe. 2. Bapesta. This was the 2nd pair of AM's shoes I purchased. A couple years after the initial auction, and I started making a little bit of money from DJing, I found these on eBay and I NEEDED them. I love the Bapsta and I haven't seen another pair of AM's Bapesta's listed since. 3. '97 OG Syracuse Dunk. I found this on eBay around the time I found the Bape's. The Dunk/AJ1 is my favorite silhouette, so any time I see one of AM's Dunks or 1's, I try to pick it up. I believe this is the same sneaker featured in the photoshoot where he's covered in shoes. 4. Hurrache - I love the Hurrache silhouette, so I needed to get a pair. I haven't found any pictures of these in his collection. 5. Tan/Pink AF1 - Remember back when hip hop was wearing pink? Haha, these must have been fire at the time. 6. For the Love of the Game AJ1 2 Pack. This is the most recent pair of Adam's shoes I've picked up. I found it on eBay for a great price about a year ago. 7. I wore these all the time in high school. They were my go-to shoe. These and the Yeezy 1/2's are my favorite pair of kicks of ALL TIME. I'm trying to find a DS pair in my size for the right price, so I can display them. 8. Air Max 95 "Kashima Antlers" Pack - This is probably one of the most peculiar pairs of AM's shoes I own. I got these from Lara around 2010/2011 and didn't hear much about them. Weirdly, they're a size 10.5. For the longest, I believed these were in the bottom left of the following pic, but I'm not sure if the timelines line up. From what I can find, these dropped between 2004 and 2006. 9. Haze Dunk - I got these from Lara, so like the 95's I don't have a CoA or any supporting docs for them. From what I can track down, these were the pair AM wore when he threw out the first pitch of the Mets game on August 25, 2009. It's incredibly hard to tell forsure. I also believe I have the pants he wore on that day, which I also got from Lara. I can't find any branding from the pics, but the fit is awfully similar. They're Dior jeans.

Hey all! Just found out about this awesome website from K-Scott on Facebook and I wanted to throw a set of pics up quick! I discovered AM when I was a teenager and I became a huuuuuuuge fan. He inspired me to DJ, as I'm sure a lot of other people were by him. About 6 years ago I "retired" from DJing because I joined the military, but over the last year I have been itching to get involved again. A little backstory on my collection... Some of the items I purchased from the sneaker auction, some I purchased through other retailers, but most of my collection comes directly from Lara Long, Adam's sister. She ran a vintage website and eBay store called Plaid Pony Vintage, which I followed. Some time in 2010/2011, Lara was diagnosed with cancer. I remember seeing some clothes pop up on her eBay that looked an awful lot like AM's, so I asked her. From what I remember and can gather from emails between me and her, she was auctioning off a bunch of his clothes to help her pay for treatment. She didn't promote the clothes as belonging to "DJ AM," and the only reason I learned they were his is because I asked. I'm a little busy packing my things up for college, so I'll be making multiple posts over the next week with what I can find, as I have the time. 1. DJ AM Mixer Tee by The Fast Life. Really not sure on the backstory about this because I bought it so long ago. If someone knows, feel free to chime in. I believe it was a promotional/charity shirt around the time his record collection was sold. 2. DJ AM Airbrush Tee. I remember finding this tee on google. Some guy had a store where he sold airbrushed tee's featuring a bunch of different musicians. I thought it looked dope, so I bought it. 3. Yo! AMTRV$ tee. I believe I purchased this from the AMTRV$ webstore with the Fix Your Face Vol 1 mixtape. 4. Babe x KAWS zip up. This hoodie belonged to Adam. I've attached a couple pics I've found of him wearing it. In the second pic of him wearing it, he is posing with his sister Lara. 5. UNDFTD "Orlando Sucks" tee (Belonged to AM). I remember jumping for joy when I got this shirt. So dope! One of the most iconic AM photos (imo) was taken in this tee. 6. Babe Shark Hoodie (Green) (Belonged to AM). I've only found one mad old pic of him wearing it. I also have this exact hoodie in white, but haven't found a pic of AM wearing it yet. Hope you enjoy! If you know more about these items, or have any questions, please feel free to comment! R.I.P. to the LEGEND.
