Chart-bothering synthpop star and Danny Brown collaborator Charli XCX has offered up her creative talents for a good cause as part of Warner Music Australia’s charity auction In Their Shoes. The proceeds from the event go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

The project, which is also supported by eBay, Converse and Sharpie, invites musicians from across the globe to customise a pair of Converse shoes to be auctioned off on October 24. Last year the project raised $120,000 for the foundation.

Charli’s design features on a pair of the iconic high-top Chuck Taylors, with oozy hand lettering on one shoe and her signature on the other.

All auctions start at an achievable $99 and there are plenty more artists involved, includin Wavves, New Order, Bloods, Professor Green, FIDLAR, Flux Pavilion, Illy, The National, Santigold and Surfer Blood to name just a few.

You can peek at Charli’s pair above and check out the others over at the In Their Shoes website.

The In Their Shoes eBay auction page is open for bidding from October 24.
