Steph Curry Sneakers Raise Funds for Oakland Fire Victims

By Darren Rovell, ESPN

 

A pair of game-worn Stephen Curry shoes sold for $30,101 on eBay on Friday afternoon, a record price paid for shoes of any player currently in the NBA. 

Curry wore the shoes—which feature graffiti-style writing that says “Oakland Strong”—on Dec. 15 in the Golden State Warriors103-90 win over the New York Knicks.

Money raised from both pairs will go to the Oakland Fire Relief fund. The fund was started after 36 people died in a fire earlier this month at the Ghost Ship warehouse.

The initials of each victim are on Curry’s game-worn shoes.

Before the auction concluded, the fund had raised $547,096 toward a $550,000 goal, thanks in part to $50,000 donations each by the Warriors, Oakland Athletics and Oakland Raiders.

 

In 2014, a pair of shoes that Kobe Bryant wore at the 2008 Olympics sold for $37,740, a record shoe sale for an active NBA player.

 

The previous record for shoes of a currently active NBA player was $28,651, for a pair of LeBron James shoes from 2005. That sale took place in December 2015.

 

The previous high for a pair of Curry shoes was $10,780, paid in December 2015 for a pair of 2014 playoff-used shoes.

 

The highest price ever paid for a Curry item was a game-used jersey from last year’s playoffs, which sold in May for $39,000.

 

The most expensive purchase of a pair of NBA game-used shoes is $104,765, paid in 2013 for Michael Jordan‘s “Flu Game” shoes from the 1997 NBA Finals.

    Professor Rojo helped me restored my relationship

    Hello friends, please read this wonderful testimony. I broke up with my girlfriend due to many misunderstandings and I remember very well how hard I had to fight to get her back. She changed her number, changed her job so that I don’t visit her office and none of her friends would give me any information about her. The only thing I could do was to go where she stayed but that was way too risky looking at the fact that her parents were very strict and she had three elder brothers and none of them would Allowed a guy who has hurt her sister. I still took my chances, so i looked for a way to get her back then a friend recommended me to contact a great Spiritualist called Professor Rojo, he would help me and as my friend said Professor Rojo can helped me to bring back my girlfriend just in 7 days. Now I have her back and this is the biggest joy of my life, i am saying thank you to Professor Rojo, he is a great man and you can email him now for similar issue: rojospiritualtemple@gmail.com
