Just the Air Trainer collection THUS FAR. And yes, wear every pair. Not one pair in mint or icy. Clean, maybe. But I’m flat footed, walk HARD and jam my size 12 feet in my kicks with wild abandon.

Living and dying by sneakers

Dominick Ruiz sat at the kitchen table in his parents’ townhouse and held up the Kanye West Adidas 750 Boost — size 8 — like they were crown jewels.

He bought them from a friend for $2,000. He thinkshe could resell them for twice that, or even more. But, man, are they comfortable, so he’s keeping them for himself.

“I’m lucky to have this shoe,” Ruiz said.

Ruiz is 16, and he’s a rising star in the sneaker resale market, an estimated $1.2 billion-a-year industry in the U.S., where sneakerheads buy and sell rare shoes through social media and at trade shows like baseball cards or stocks.

His short career has not been without tragedy, though. Last February, his best friend and mentor, Jamal Gaines, 21, was killed in a robbery.

Ruiz was shattered. But he pressed on, drawn to the connections he has made, energized by the challenge — and the money — by tracking down the right shoe in the right size.
