Elvis Presley’s Blue Suede Shoes Sell at Auction

The most iconic suede shoes ever cobbled belonged to the man known as The King, aka, Elvis Presley.

He wore his blue suede shoes so much he sang a song about them.

The shoes sold for the princely sum of £120,000 (around $152,000) after they went up for grabs at British auction house Henry Aldridge and Son on Friday.

Bidding for the shoes, which were described as “an iconic lot of showbusiness memorabilia that simply transcends 20th century popular culture,” began at £55,000 (around $69,600).

The shoes were bought by a client from California, Henry Aldridge said.
