Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry raised an incredible amount of money on EBay for a pair of his shoes – his Curry 6 ‘Moon Landing’ shoes that were game-worn.
The money went to a good cause, as Curry’s shoes went for $58,100, with all the cash going to to STEM programs in Bay Area schools.
The ‘Moon Landing’ shoes were custom made by Under Armour, and were part of the Curry 6 line. Curry had worn the shoes in a game before he went ahead and autographed them and then they were auctioned off.
The fundraiser kicked off on January 4th, with the proceeds going to STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics programs for Bay Area schools.
The special shoes featured a moon rock print with a NASA logo and “United States” on the toe tips, while stars and stripes adorn the shoes’ tongue tabs.
They were worn by Curry during a Warriors game against the Houston Rockets at Oracle Arena.
Oddly enough Curry garnered a lot of attention for coming out and saying that the original moon landing was a “fake” on a podcast.
Curry later on after a firestorm on the media and twitter clarified his comments, saying that he was “joking.”
