Small Steps shoe auction features big names

The Small Steps Project’s annual celebrity shoe auction features footwear from some of the biggest names in politics and entertainment.

The charity raises funds for children living on rubbish dumps around the world.

Depeche Mode boots

Dave Gahan, lead singer of Depeche Mode, has consigned these Balenciaga boots 

Founder Amy Hanson explained to the London Economic: “We are in the 8th year of the celebrity shoe auction, now the biggest in the world, with more A-listers taking part in our small charity’s fundraiser than Comic Relief. How?

“...We know from experience that celebrities’ realise we are sincerely raising money only for the people who really need it.

“And the celebrities we work with really do want to take a small step and make a difference to others, not just their own profile.”

The current leader, ahead of the November 21 close date, is Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan – who consigns a pair of well worn grey leather Balenciaga boots.

He has signed each on the heel.

The price stands at $3,000, with 12 bidders duking it out.

A pair of blue canvas Vans donated by Australian singer and producer Sia are at $1,500.

The size 5s are illustrated with images of stick men and hearts, along with the words “I love you”.

The sale also features consignments from Emma Watson, Idris Elba and Jeremy Corbyn among many others.
