Want the chance to slip your feet into a pair of stilettos from Emma Watson’s personal wardrobe, take a stroll in Sherlock’s loafers, or even (if your hand-eye-coordination is better than mine) make an ace in Maria Sharapova’s autographed Nike trainers? Well you can - and all in aid of a good cause!

The Small Shoe Project provides impoverished children across the world with simple items such as shoes, gloves and clothing to protect them from the health risks posed by their everyday environments.

The volunteer-run organization was founded by standing CEO Amy Hanson after a trip to Cambodia in 2009 revealed to her the barefoot reality of hundreds of children scavenging for waste in their community dumps.

The Celebrity Shoe auction, first run in 2011, has advanced number of second phase-sustainable projects looking to relieve impoverished children of their days spent in refuse, provide them with the means of taking small but sure steps toward education.

This years’ auction includes donations from Emma Watson, Rita Ora, Roger Federer, Kate Moss, Rod Stewart and over 70 others. The auction ends in just over a week when all money raised will go directly toward the charity’s current projects (full details of which can be found on their website: smallstepsproject.org).

Whoever thought you could walk in the shoes of your favorite celeb and change the world at the same time!

 

These gorgeous silk stilettos are only stunning, they were handpicked by actress and Global Goodwill Ambassador, Emma Watson, from Sergio Rossi’s Green Carpet collection for her own wardrobe. The beaded detail, delicate ankle strap and, of course, Emma Watson’s signature, surely makes these the world’s most desirable pair of heels.

Make your bid.

These Hi-Top wedges from Nike have to be the funkiest pair of trainers ever to be made. And if that bold wacky red and white paisley print got your full attention, let me just remind you that these shoes have been worn and signed by X-Factor singer and fitness model Fleur East

Make your bid.

Lads. If you want to walk, dance and jive like a legend, then Rod Stewart’s metallic gold brogues are surely the way to go. Original Luciano Marra, EUR size 41, signed by the man himself. Get these in the bag and there’ll be no need to ask, Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?!

Make your bid.

Now wouldn’t be a fashion frenzy if Kate Moss didn’t throw something into the mix would it? Britain’s most iconic fashion model has of course donated a quality pair of shoes from her own personal collection. Saint Laurent, Italian crafted black leather, lined with fur and finished with the gold signature ‘Love Kate Moss’ handwritten across each heel. Who wouldn’t die to walk like a supermodel in these fringed ankle boots!

Make your bid.

But, would you just look at these. Adidas Dreams trainers as previously owned by none other than Coldplay found Chris Martin! Signed ‘Chris’ on the right toe, and ‘Coldplay 2016’ on the left, I think it’s fair to say that these beauties will be in demand by male and female fans alike!

Make your bid.
