Just when you thought you had escaped the Nike Air Yeezy madness, 2009’s biggest attention recipient has been announced as a part of the Doernbecher Charity Auction.

You may remember reading about the Air Jordan 6 Doernbecher Freestyle and the story behind its creation. Proceeds from the auction go to help the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. As mentioned above, it’s been announced that the original Kanye West signature shoe will be included in the auction. Two pairs, in fact.

The first is the black and gum pair Kanye wore at the 2008 Grammy Awards that set the internet on fire with anticipation for the eventual 2009 production versions. According to Chi McBride, who was on hand to announce this news with Jordan Brand Creative Director Mark Smith, Kanye had to give them back to Nike after the awards show.?Kanye didn’t even see the second pair of Yeezy’s up to the highest bidder. Like the first pair, they’re all black leather, but these feature an Air Jordan 6 sole, also in all black.

Unless you’re ready to put up your house, car or savings for these super exclusive Nikes, pics will have to do, but rest assured that the absurd amount that is going to be paid for them is going to a great cause.
