Katy Perry and Gary Lineker's shoes could be the 'perfect fit' for collectors

Starting yesterday and running for ten days, the sale, organised by Nobel Prize winning charity the Manchester Mines Advisory Group (MAG), features shoes and boots from a variety of popular figures.

Highlights include pop star Katy Perry's Report Signature high heeled shoes which come in a satin bronze colouring, and comedian David Walliams' handmade leather church shoes.

Green Day guitarist Mike Dirnt's custom boots are part of the sale

The world of sport is also well represented with Gary Lineker's black and white Adidas football boots on offer, alongside Roger Federer's Nike Air tennis shoes.

Elsewhere, Monty Python legend Eric Idle's white Marc Jacobs trainers - featuring personalised art work and the quotation "Always look on the Bright Side of Life" taken from the popular Python film "The Life of Brian" - are also for sale.

Michael Palin's autographed Boots from a recent trip are up for auction

Other footwear up for sale comes from the likes of Nelly Furtado, Dame Shirley Bassey and Cherie Blair, to name but a few.

The charity approached celebrities to donate shoes to the auction and were amazed by the response, with 69 different pairs put forward for auction.

Organiser Zoe Corden told the BBC:

"We've been totally overwhelmed by the support we've had from celebrities who've given up their shoes to help those affected by conflict.

The unique sale will conclude at 6.30pm on August 1, and is one not to be missed by sports, celebrity and collectible memorabilia enthusiasts.
