The celebrity-owned shoes with the highest bids so far, at time of writing, belong to Depeche Mode's David Gahan (£2,264), Depeche Mode's Martin Gore (£1341, Sia (£1132) and Emma Watson (£1019).

Each pair comes with a description of shoe size, brand, brief background of when they were worn or donated or both. The auction runs until November 21.

So, if you want to walk in the footsteps of a celebrity, own Hunter Welly's from Blur's Alex James or just want to pick up a pair of Jimmy Choo's, this is the ideal opportunity and it's all for an amazing cause.
