Celebrity signed shoes auction results

A charity auction offering shoes of the stars has paid off for the Small Steps initiative, raising money to provide children around the world with a better life by selling pairs of pumps, heels, brogues, boots and sandals owned and signed by celebrities.

The live auction launch was held on October 11th at the Jalouse club in Hanover square, and saw Elizabeth Hurley’s heels sell for £1,200, Keira Knightley’s heels for £1,100, and Ben Stiller’s trainers for £500.

The online auction followed, with 50 additional pairs of shoes, donated and signed by actors, models, musicians, film and television stars. It ended on October 21st.

Coldplay musician Chris Martin’s size 12s cashed in at the top, his signed designer boots, albeit somewhat scuffed, selling for £3,600. The next favourite were Ronnie Wood’s hand-painted Belstaff boots, sold for £1,231.11.

Comedian Ricky Gervais donated his suede Puma trainers for an £820 sale, while Welsh crooner Sir Tom Jones’ Chelsea boots sold for £480. Liam Gallagher’s Pretty Green boots were not far behind at £472. Ben Stiller’s trendy high-tops fetched £301.

Unusual as it may be to see men’s footwear gaining more attention than that of the girls, sales that followed included Dame Judi Dench’s signed court shoes worn in the new James Bond film Skyfall sell for £460, and Sarah Jessica Parker’s Stella McCartney heels fetch £385. Kate Moss’ signed Mulberry heels fetched £294, and Sienna Miller’s Stefanel heels for £256.

Even birdwatcher Bill Oddie’s walking boots brought in £51, and petrol-head Jeremy Clarkson’s blue suede shoes fetched £101.07.

Other sales included the second hand footwear of Morgan Freeman, Brian May, Daniel Radcliffe, Fearne Cotton, Darcy Bussell, Gemma Arterton, Ralph Fiennes, Kevin Bacon and more.

The money will help support children forced to work and live on rubbish dumps and landfills worldwide. They will gain shoes, clothing, food, education, aid and medical care.
