“If you’ve ever browsed eBay for sneakers, there’s about a 100% chance you’ve come across a few auctions from the seller Croatianstyle. Over the last 15 years or so, Andre “Dre” Ljustina (@croatianstyle) has built a sneaker reselling empire, not only completing over 20,000 eBay sales including pretty much every pair of sneakers you’ve ever wanted, but also doubling up in the resale curation game with Project Blitz (projectblitz.com), an online destination for rare and early pairs.
In this new animated series The Come Up, Episode 2 presents Dre’s story of his most memorable score, but it’s probably not anything you’d imagine from the man that has had or can get just about any sneaker ever made. Instead of telling the tale of how he scored a one-of-one PE, insane sample, or truckload of Yeezys, Dre goes all the way back to his middle school days for a unique story of shooting hoops at Magic Mountain in his beloved OG pair of the Air Jordan 7 “Bordeaux”. It’s gotta be the shoes!” – @snkrinc
