You must think “Huh? Didn’t she have those Sean Witherspoon’s already”. Yes I did and I kept them as a plant holder for a long time too. A lot of people hated to see that but I just didn’t want to give up on them. I actually did not want to put them for sale. I was so lucky to get them in the first place but they were way too big. And I kept forcing myself by putting an extra insole in it. But I gave up. Placed them on a shelf with orchids in it and appreciated it as art.
Eventually.. a girl who follows me sent me a DM and asked if I was thinking about selling them. I still didn’t want to but it was smart of her to let me know she was interested. I knew that it was hard for her to get this particular pair so I said I would think about it. A few days past and after a lot of thinking I messaged her. I was willing to sell it but not right away, I wanted to keep it for a little bit. She was fine with that and paid upfront. After three weeks I finally sent it over to her and a week after that, she messaged saying she was so happy with them.
I wasn’t happy. It’s been a while I felt like this after selling a shoe. But the money was helpful for our new home, so it was for a good cause however I just really wanted these shoes.
Two weeks ago I came back to the office after a shoot and I saw several boxes on our desk. My co-worker was putting a few of his personal collection on StockX. Then suddenly I saw this box and a size 4. I thought noooo way.. I grabbed and opened it. No way. A size 4 of Sean Wotherspoon. On my desk. In my size. This can’t be happening.
Okay cool. A size 4. “I need this! How much?” – “€700”. No effing way I’m going to pay that.. I walked away and suddenly I heard: “You can have it for the last sale of StockX”. Which was €540. I thought and said: “Give me a day”. I went through all my shoes. What did I want to keep and what not. To be fair, I don’t wear a lot of kicks. I wear what’s comfortable. I loved my Pradas but to be fair: they were so not comfy. Hup. For sale. And so several other pairs. At the end of the day is collected €600 by only selling kicks and a few clothes I never wore.
You can call me crazy but I really felt like shit when I sold them at first, even though I didn’t fit them. This is a pair I really fell in love with. They’re still in the box. Dead stock.
Who remembers the release day of the Nike Element React 87 x Undercover? Well I do. I had several things open. iPad. Laptop. iPhone. And still nope. So this one was easy. I really wanted them and I was okay with paying a bit extra for them. I checked StockX and started bidding. I started at €250 and wasn’t planning on paying more than €300. The bid was accepted at €295.
I really dig the Elements. They are cozy but so cold. Also these are waiting for warmer days now. I have worn them once. Also, I had no idea I had to go a half size down – well I had to because I have tiny ass feet. But then again, I’m very happy to have these in my collection.
What did you cop lately?
