About Dee Wells

Dee Wells calls Worcester, Massachusetts home, but grew up in the beautiful US Virgin Islands (St.Thomas & St. John). Heavily influenced by Hip Hop, Dee has always been fascinated by people and what they wear, especially their footwear. Thus his love for fashion and, more specifically, sneakers began. It all started with him watching his parents play tennis; his father wore adidas Rod Laver sneakers and his mother wore adidas Stan Smith sneakers, which gave birth to Dee's love for leather and rubber. Dee's first pair of sneakers were Puma Clyde sneakers, which he religiously changed the shoe laces to match his clothes and kept clean with a jar filled with water, Dawn dish washing liquid and a toothbrush. While Dee has amassed a collection of sneakers, it's the stories that are the most important; he calls those stories Kickstories. Dee has also been instrumental in bringing the sneaker subculture to the forefront through his involvement with Sole Collector Magazine and the OSD (Obsessive Sneaker Disorder) brand and talk show.
