Special-edition Drake Shoes Not Actually Sold For $100k, Giveaway Winner Felt Uncomfortable Owning Them

On top of that, the misdirected hysteria over these sales made the seller of the second auctioned Jordans the white pair, not the black ones uncomfortable even keeping the shoes in his home. From Tyler Munro for AUX.tv : Toronto-based photographer Devon Little , one of two people to nab a pair as a giveaway at http://www.chicemma.com the Toronto Raptors Drake Night, says he wasnt planning on selling the shoes until a friend told him how much the first pair was going for online. While he calls himself a huge fan of Drake, telling us he listens to Nothing Was the Same daily, the realities of being a broke 22-year-old student with a chance to make a wad of cash too good to ignore. Little put his shoes up for auction and watched bids climb to more than $100,000 throughout the day, and thats when things got stressful. Devon elaborates: […] At this point [when the bidding reached six figures] I was very stressed. I didnt feel comfortable with the shoes in my house, so we took them out of the city and put them in a safe box.

Avery Flynn: Shoes, glorious shoes

To prepare him for the salty urban winter sidewalks, his owners had him try on some dog shoes. But walking in them, it turned out, presented a major challenge for the poor pooch. His attempt to get around with his paws trapped inside these foreign objects is pretty adorable (if a bit upsetting), but be warned: his owners laughter gets kind of annoying. You might as well just mute the video and turn on your own soundtrack. We suggest Take a Walk by Passion Pit. Latest from our Partners

There Is No Struggle Greater Than the Struggle of This Dachshund Trying to Walk in Shoes

These babies are probably the most famous shoes ever to make an appearance in a movie. So much so that there is a meme about The Wizard of Oz that boils the plot down to two chicks fighting over a pair of shoes. I’ve been lucky enough to see them on display in the Smithsonian, and I squealed out loud with delight. Don’t worry, my kids have no illusions about just how much of a dork their mom is. The Glass Slippers The original fairy tale is a bloody mess of people hacking off toes to try to fit into Cinderella’s obviously miniature shoes . Disney, no surprise, didn’t go that route.
