Kanye West Signs A Pair Of Used Nike Air Yeezy 2 Sneakers For A Hurricane Sandy Auction
Although it’s been a couple of months now since Hurricane Sandy came through and created devastation all throughout the tri-state area, there are still a lot of people out there who are trying to pick up the pieces of their lives and put them back together. They need help rebuilding, and Re/Create New York is set to give it to them. Re/Create New York is an auction that is set to take place, beginning on Friday night, that’ll give people the chance to bid on special items donated by celebrities in order to raise money for Hurricane Sandy victims. And, there are a ton of items that are going to be available during the auction.
For instance, Anne Hathaway signed a Miu Miu dress that will be auctioned off. Marc Jacobs signed a Mini Stam bag. Kate Moss signed (and kissed!) a copy of her book. Skrillex signed a jacket. And, Julianne Moore donated a signed breastplate that she wore during the making of Carrie. But, the item that we’re most excited about is the Nike Air Yeezy 2 that Kanye West wore and then signed for the auction. It’s a sample pair that Yeezy wore himself, and it is a true one-of-a-kind item that you need to place a bid on if you’re a fan of exclusive kicks.
So, when can you bid? Well, all of the items that are up for auction have different start times. But, the Yeezy 2 will go on the auction block on January 24 at 10 p.m. Get an up-close-and-personal look at the sneaker by scrolling down and seeing it from a few different angles. And then, make sure you’re ready to bid on it when the auction starts on January 24. It’s for a good cause, people. So, make sure you make Re/Create New York your very best offer. In addition to helping out the cause, you’ll also be giving yourself a good chance to own a piece of sneaker history.
