Lot 933: Robin Williams's personally-owned and -worn pair of 'Sudo' brand black-and-orange sneakers, size 10, signed on the large orange top in black ink, "You've got sole, Robin Williams." In very good condition, with general wear from use. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the recipient describing the history of these shoes, which he received from Robin Williams in 1996 while walking down Melrose Blvd in Los Angeles. He encountered the actor at an ATM, where the two exchanged compliments on each other's shoes; in an episode of his hilarious hijinks, Williams suggested swapping—right in the middle of the street. Thoughtfully signing one of his shoes with this clever message, they made the switch. Absolutely unique, these colorful sneakers perfectly encompass Williams's legacy and all that made him famous as an outgoing and kind person prone to acts of zany eccentricity.
