Platform Boots Worn By Elton John To Be Auctioned For Charity

The black leather, knee high boots that Elton John wore on stage are set to be auctioned off for charity.

The Giusti-made boots are size 8 (U.K.) and come along with an autographed pic of John and two tickets to this year's Bestival, which is being held on the Isle of Wight from September 5-8.

"The boots are decorated with a reflective gold piano motif around the platform. Both boots are signed, left boot - 'With love, Elton John X'; right Boot 'Elton John, February 1997,'" reads the listing.

The auction, which takes place through eBay, is open until September 1. The current bid is at nearly $1,000.

The money, according to a blurb from Elton, will go to Amnesty International.

"Basic human rights are being violated the world over on the basis of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation," he posted. "Amnesty International do an amazing job in bringing the world's attention to this abuse."
