Virgin America designs First Class Shoe, the world’s only pair, and it’s being auctioned on eBay to benefit Sole4Souls.
What happens when Virgin America designs a First Class Shoe? They auction it on eBay to raise funds for Soles4Souls, a non-profit charity committed to fighting poverty through the distribution of shoes and clothing. Virgin America, Eleven Inc. and Milan’s SearchnDesign teamed up to create this Virgin America First Class Shoe.
It’s the only pair of its kind in the world. Here are the stats: it sports the same leather Virgin uses to craft its airplane seats, it features a WiFi enabled hotspot, moodlighting, a USB phone charger, a video display and a rechargeable battery. The ultra-exclusive limited editions kicks where hand crafted in Milan, Italy and also display an embossed Virgin America logo.
UPDATE [10.19.2016] Bidding is underway on eBay until October 23. With 63 bids so far, the auction is currently over $91,000 US. 100% of the proceeds will go to Soles4Souls.
