Before his untimely death in late August, DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, was known to the world as a number of things including disc jockey, producer, remix artist, and businessman.
On a somewhat smaller scale, AM was revered in the sneaker community as a true enthusiast who had amassed a jaw-dropping collection of kicks that most could only dream of.
Now, thanks to a collaborative effort between the DJ AM Memorial Fund and the non-profit Creative Visions Foundation, that sneaker collection will be made available to the public via a charity auction to be held on eBay.
Beginning Sunday November 15th, bidding will commence on the first wave of more than 800 shoes, with auctions currently expected to run until Monday December 14th. 100% of the proceeds from the sales will be donated to the DJ AM Memorial Fund, which maintains the legacy of Adam Goldstein and his commitment to helping others struggling with addiction.
Some of the shoes set to be auctioned off can be seen in this 2006 clip from MTV News:
UNDFTD will also contribute by showcasing 18 pairs of Goldstein’s shoes at their La Brea, Santa Monica, and Silverlake stores.
