As all eyes turn to the Olympics and Usain Bolt in particular, online auction house Catawiki is auctioning the runner’s actual shoe that he wore during the 2015 World Championships in Beijing, helping him win 3 gold medals!
These shoes were designed for and signed by Bolt himself and are not available for the public to buy… until now! The Olympian’s running spike is expected to go for £4,200.
Catawiki will also be selling a spike signed by the superhuman and framed in a display, commemorating his Olympic wins, which is tipped to sell for £500.
The auction goes live on Friday 5th of August and runs until 21st of August. As part of their Olympic memorabilia auction, online auction house Catawiki are also selling items from other Olympic stars, such as a hand-signed display featuring a replica gold medal from the most decorated GB Olympian of all time, Chris Hoy.
