會買這雙球鞋嗎?這就是Tony Allen在一場賽事中用這雙鞋踢到Chris Paul的臉上。是否很有記念價值呢?這雙球鞋在2013年12月22日被拍賣掉，價值$5,400美金。所得的收益會捐去慈善機構…
Would you buy these shoes? These are the kicks that Tony Allen wore in a game this year while kicking Chris Paul in the face. That is memorable? I guess apparently so. The shoe was auctioned by December 22, 2013 and actually went for $5,400 USD! WTF. All proceeds to charity so maybe that played a part. Truth is strange, beware out there.

To celebrate the holiday season, Allen – the NBA’s Season of Giving Ambassador for the Memphis Grizzlies – is donating the renowned shoe to Youth Villages, a national nonprofit organization headquartered in Memphis. Youth Villages will auction the shoe online as part of an effort to raise $15,000 to buy presents for children receiving help on Youth Villages’ Memphis residential campuses and group homes.
“I’m glad that the shoe will be creating something special for kids in Memphis. Everyone deserves to have a Christmas to remember. I’m glad I can be a part of their memories,” Allen said.

“It’s a one-of-a-kind piece of sports memorabilia that will be an amazing addition to any Grizzlies fan’s collection,” said Richard Shaw, chief development officer at Youth Villages.
Starting bid price of $750 will provide holiday gifts for 10 children in Youth Villages’ care. The auction ends Sunday, Dec. 22, 2013.
All proceeds generated from the sale of “The Shoe” will be matched 1:1 from an anonymous donor (up to $10,000) and will be used to ensure that all children away from their families this Christmas at Youth Villages experience the joy of the season.
