Multifaceted New York-based creative Nicole McLaughlin has put five unique pairs of shoes up for auction, each of which has been using solely upcycled materials sourced on eBay by the designer.

McLaughlin — who earlier this year was appointed brand ambassador for Arc’teryx — has garnered quite the following in recent years through her skill of upcycling unwanted garments and accessories, and last year raffled a selection of one-off Patagonia pieces with all proceeds going to the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Now McLaughlin is auctioning off five unique pairs of shoes, with all money raised going towards Stop AAPI Hate.

Footwear on offer includes a Nike ACG Windbreaker slip-on, ASICS water bottle slippers and Salomon hiking shoes, alongside a pair of strapped Nike x Mead School bag sandals, with some pairs costing up to $560 USD at the time of writing.

You can find out more about Nicole McLaughlin’s eBay auction here, with bidding set to run until July 1.
