Beyonce's shoes donated to Small Steps charity auction

The world's biggest auction of celebrity shoes returns for its fifth instalment in December, with Beyonce's shoes among the highlights.

Paul Fraser Collectibles predicts Andy Murray's shoes to sell well, with his memorabilia rarely seen at auction, yet always met with strong bids

The Small Steps Project auction opens for bids on November 4, and closes on December 7. Profits will benefit charities supporting children living on landfill sites, many of who walk on them barefoot.

The highlights of the sale are shoes from Beyonce and George Clooney. While images of Beyonce's shoes - sure to be the epitome of style - have not yet been released, Clooney has donated a pair of heavy Timberland boots decorated with a map of Africa with Sudan highlighted in red.

Clooney is well known for his philanthropy and activism regarding the war in Darfur, Sudan.

Also featuring are shoes from tennis stars Andy Murray, Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova.

Music legends such as Ronnie Rood, Debbie Harry and Rod Stewart have donated their footwear, along with a trio of sneakers from De La Soul's opening set at Glastonbury 2014.

Previous sales from the Small Steps Project have seen Mick Jagger's shoes from Glastonbury Festival offered for sale, while Thor actor Tom Hiddleston's Converse sneakers saw top bids at $7,339.

A new pair of Jimmy Choos have been donated by Hiddleston for 2014; he is joined by Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, this year. However, it will be the auctioneer's gavel not Thor's hammer that decides the victor.
