Sienna Miller's Calvin Klein heels sure to turn heads at charity auction
The Small Steps Project has been inundated with shoes from kind hearted celebrities
Sienna Miller and Colin Firth and among the film stars coming forward to offer their shoes to a charitable cause.
Proceeds from the October 12 auction of celebrities' footwear, which takes place at the Royal Society of Medicine in London, will go towards the Small Steps Project.
The charity aims to support children forced to live and work on rubbish dumps around the world.
Sienna Miller's signed Calvin Klein heels and Colin Firth's Hugo Boss loafers will join offerings from Sex and the City's Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis, as well as Helen Mirren and Gillian Anderson.
Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has also offered a pair of shoes, while Liverpool and England footballer has donated a pair of Adidas football boots.
Amy Hanson, the journalist who founded the charity, told the Music Rooms website: "When I went to Cambodia I witnessed huge landfills full of our waste where the local children would search for items to sell to support their families.
"This money will help to get them away from those places and prevent them harming themselves on shards of glass and sharp objects."
In 2000, one of the five pairs of Judy Garland-worn red slippers from The Wizard of Oz achieved $666,000 at Christie's New York.
At the more affordable end of the market, a pair of Keds signed by Twilight actress Kristen Stewart recently sold for $1,577 on eBay in support of Shoe Revolt, a charity that fights against human trafficking.
