Rapper Nelly is putting up many of his custom sneakers featured on Dancing With The Stars for auction with the proceeds going to The Teen Project.
Sources say that Nelly will be donating minimum 10 pairs to the non-profit. The sneaker collection is speculated to be sold somewhere in the ballpark of $50,000 USD though the footwear selection has yet to be specified.
Earlier on this year a custom pair of “Black Cement” Air Jordan 3s, were worn by Dancing With The Stars contestant Yung Swivel as he danced on the stage with his dance partner Daniella Karagach to the sound of Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Let’s Groove”. The Air Jordans were made with a heel. It has also been reported by sources that the Nelly has been “a major advocate” of the non-profit, The Teen Project and that the artist was able to assist in raising up to $820,000 USD over the course of 2020. The non-profit is also expecting an additional $30,000 USD from Nelly on top of the auction’s proceeds.
