Depeche23Mode - Words and Pics From a Rare Air Collector
If you haven't heard of Depeche23Mode, chances are high that you've run into a few of his pictures somewhere on the net. A lot of the shoe blogs out there have taken his eBay pictures to showcase rare gems that don't surface too often. Although he doesn't post much anywhere else, his pictures really do all the talking as they are usually of the rare variety. Here's a few words from Simon, along with a lot more pics for your viewing pleasure!
Let's start with the introduction...What's your name, location, and shoe size?
Simon Voltaire Tan / McAllen, TX / sz 10
How long have you been collecting shoes for?
Give us a brief summary about your collection or collecting habits.
I had about 450+ pairs all DS 10 yrs. ago when I just got married. I decided to sell all of it & just narrow it down to 10 pairs since me & wifey living in an apt. w/ no couch because the living room is being occupied by my collection. My collection should always be fresh. I like having new rare sneakers. But in order for me to afford that & not jeopardize my responsibility to my family, I must sell & let someone else enjoy what I had. Look at the last 2 photos down below, the transition or changes of my collection in only 5 months.
