Sir Elton John's pair of platform boots are part of an auction of rock and pop memorabilia on eBay to help raise funds for the human rights work of Amnesty International.
The black leather, knee-high, 6in (15cm) platform-soled boots - signed "With love, Elton John x" - and decorated with a giant gold piano motif around the platform are part of a collection of items donated to the charity by musicians in recent years.
They are being offered along with a signed photo of the star, as well as two free tickets to see him headline the Bestival festival on the Isle of Wight on September 8.
Other items in the auction include a signed platinum album of Coldplay's A Rush Of Blood To The Head, signed by all four members of the band, and a drum-skin signed by members of Genesis.
Bids close on September 1 and all the money raised will go directly to Amnesty's human rights work.
