Phil Labonte To Auction Off Shoes For Charity
All That Remains vocalist Phil Labonte is a generous soul, and he is doing another good deed by auctioning off an old, stage-worn pair of shoes. This might sound a little odd, but it's for charity and these shoes have been around and could tell a bunch of stories if only they were able to talk.
The auction will benefit Wounded Warrior, "a charity organization that offers aid to injured servicemen and servicewomen of Labonte's generation." The charity hits home for Labonte, who himself use to be a Marine (I had no idea of this!), and it also runs in the family, as both of his grandfathers served in WWII, and his father was a member of the Air Force.
Go here to bid on the footwear that Labonte sported in 2010 and 2011 on the 'For We Are Many' tour cycle in North America. Labonte will also scrawl his John Hancock on the shoes, so you can easily put them in a case for your mantelpiece. We didn't think you were going to actually wear them. Or maybe you will. But aside from the proceeds benefiting a worthwhile cause, these shoes will certain be a prime pick up for the world's biggest ATR fan.
All proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Warrior project.
The shoes currently have 37 bids, and the price is up to $247.50.
