Pardon us while we freak out for a second: Aslkdjasdsakd. OK, whew, sorry we just had to get that out of our system after finding out that Kanye West’s very own, personally-worn-by-his-size-10.5-feet Air Yeezy 2 sneakers will be put up for auction starting January 24. In case you forgot, the madness surrounding the release of this Nike x Kanye West collab was absolutely BONKERS (see: people got robbed while waiting in line/paid more than $80,000 for a pair on eBay), so, basically, even if you could get your hands on these bad boys, we highly suggest storing them in a very, VERY secure place a.k.a not on your feet. (Sorry!) The sneakers are part of RE/CREATE New York’s Hurricane Sandy auction, which will donate all the proceeds to New York Cares for the ongoing rebuilding and relief efforts. They have tons of “personal, one-of-a-kind items donated by prominent members of their creative community,” which include everyone from Selena Gomez to Marc Jacobs to Emma Roberts.
Selena donated a signed bottle of her perfume, while Marc Jacobs offered up a brand new turquoise Mini Stam bag (which is autographed on the inside) and Emma Watson donated a canary yellow 2012 MET Ball strapless Escada gown. Other awesome items include Kate Moss’ book which is “signed and kissed” by the supermodel, a one-of-a-kind, custom NICOPANDA “Naboo” bag from the yet-to-be-released debut MUGLER bag collection by Nicola Formichetti, and a one-of-a-kind Alexander Wang satchel. *dies* If high fashion ain’t your thang, you can always bid on the Richard Phillips Most Wanted limited edition prints of Robert Pattinson, Zac Efron, and Chace Crawford, but no matter WHAT you choose, you’ll be happy knowing the money is all going to a good cause.
