When anyone dies it is usually a sad moment in time, which can only begin to get better through a grieving and remembrance process. But when someone often in the public eye and who chose to embrace the role he/she played in this world passes away, it reaches people from all over with varying backgrounds and in different situations. That was exactly the case when word got out of DJ AM’s passing away. However, his death should not cloud our memory of him or leave us forever dejected because a vibrant spirit such as DJ AM’s would have wanted none of that. And as we continue on our way to dealing with his and many other deaths, we are better off using what we learned from those people to live better, happier lives instead of stay stuck in an often confusing present.

One way in which we now have the opportunity to do this is by supporting the DJ AM Memorial Fund, which aims to help support others who face constant battles with addiction. In that spirit, DJ AM’s VERY extensive size 11 shoe collection will be auctioned off through eBay starting this Sunday November 15, 2009. ALL of the proceeds will benefit the fund’s initiatives and depict how much one can have an impact, even after leaving us for good. You can find more information from the DJ AM Memorial Fund eBay page and perhaps do your part in getting involved.



  1. it is weird, but at the end of the day, what would the person that inherited his stuff, do with all those shoes if they arent an addict themselves?? Its better to auction them off to those that will appreciate the shoes versus throwing them away or giving them away.

  2. Why are you guys so happy about some fuckin shoes you cant take to the grave? now you see wwhy most of us black people need th goverments help. black people so lame go buy a house then get happy

  3. (Can't believe black people today) damn your ignorant. Wise up what do these shoes have to do with the goverment helping you. You make no sense. The shoe collection is ridicoulus. But I'm not spending 2600$ on a regular tiffany dunk because AM owned them.

  4. Why does it have to be black people buying the shoes? Who said anything about black people needing the government? I'm sure all races will be bidding on his shoes. Why did you bring black people into this?

  5. YEP. Its sad that he died, but TRUTH BE TOLD he was "addicted" to drugs at the time. That and Nike Dunks.

  6. The funny part about his racist comment is that he thinks only black people buy shoes. When the auction is b/c a CAUCASIAN is the one who previously owned them……Oh the irony!! If he was only as smart as he was dumb he too would have not made that comment.

  7. there is really no need for the racist remarks on both parts white or black its just shoes, but am was a good dj no matter what even tho he was an addicted rip!

  8. d you need to under stand that evan if someone is an addict he made alot of mistakes in his life and there really is no reson to talk about the dead like that dog.
