Taylor Swift Donates Autographed Red Shoes to Soles4Souls
Taylor Swift has donated a pair of shiny red Bloch brand ballet flats to Soles4Souls, an international shoe charity. Not only are the shoes as adorable and as fashionable as Dorothy’s from ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ but the ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ singer also autographed the inside soles of the shoes, and with a heart. So whoever bids on and wins the shoes might not want to wear them, so as not to smear or smudge Swift’s John Hancock!
Aren’t those shoes just darling? We love the glossy sheen and the little bow on the tip. We could totally see Swifty wearing them with a white or a black frock. It’s not lost on us that the shoes are a bright shade of tomato, since Swift’s forthcoming album, which drops on Oct. 22, is titled ‘Red.’ She is really sticking with that crimson motif in both promotional and charitable endeavors.
Other celebs, actors and pop stars who autographed footwear include Jessica Simpson, Ryan Seacrest, Jonah Hill, Jason Bateman and many more.
“For most celebrities, the shoes they wear are an important reflection of their personality and fashion taste. But for millions of adults and children around the world, their shoes are a necessity to protect them from life-threatening diseases like hook worm,” said Kevin Goughary, CEO of Soles4Souls, in a statement which reflected the importance of the cause. “This auction is a perfect example of one person’s shoes being able to make a real world difference is someone else’s life.”
You can bid here. The shoes are already going for over $700.
