Sarah Jessica Parker, Eva Green, and Sienna Miller are amongst some of the celebrities to donate their shoes to raise money for a children’s charity.
The fashionistas have leant a hand to a campaign that aims to bring awareness to children working on some of the world's biggest landfills.
A whole host of stars, including Dame Vivienne Westwood, Colin Firth and Sophie Dahl, have all donated their favourite footwear to be auctioned by Small Steps.
The charity was founded in 2008 by former celebrity journalist Amy Hanson after an eye-opening visit to Cambodia.
"After working in show-business for so long, I knew how much food, alcohol and luxury goods were wasted in the industry," she revealed in an interview with vogue.com.
"The amount that we waste is causing such harm to not only the planet, but to lives on the other side of the world - and we don't even realise it."
Dame Helen Mirren, Kristin Davis, and Rachel Weisz have all donated their shoes to the worthwhile cause.
Boy George also gave his famous ponyskin boots to the charity. The flamboyant singer wore the shoes for his first performance on television show Top Of The Pops in 1983.
There are many luxury labels included in the auction - Manolo Blahnik, Christian Louboutin and Louis Vuitton are all part of the upcoming event.
The Small Steps charity auction will take place at the Royal Society of Medicine, London, on October 8.
