Sneaker blog Campless has sat down with a notorious and prolific sneaker reseller, who elected to remain anonymous, to discover the tricks of his trade, how he obtains the most exclusive releases, and to to break down his work into some cold, hard statistics.

With the decision to embark on the reseller path made, the next challenge was to get good at it.
