Warholabilia Shoes Up For Auction

On June 22, Christies will be auctioning off some of Andy Warhol's shoes. (Oh, if only I had a million dollars or two or three!)

The items, included in a sale of celebrity memorabilia announced by Christie's on Monday, were culled from gifts that Warhol bestowed on Jeffrey Warhola and his other nephews when they visited their famous uncle from the late 1960s until his death in 1987.

Pre-sale estimates are as low as $600 for the belongings of the Pop Art icon, whose subjects included Marilyn Monroe, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and the famed red-and-white soup can.

The market for Warhols has been especially hot in recent years, with his art works regularly selling for several million dollars.

The auction, set for June 22 in New York, features his clothing, roller skates, cowboy boots, sunglasses and neckties.

This lot includes 2 pairs of his cowboy boots. Check out and bid here.

This second lot also includes two pairs of coyboy boots. I like these green ones. Bid Here!

Wow! This pair is paint spattered. (Bid here!) I would love to have these. They are Ferragamo.

What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!
