Roger Federer Signed Shoes
Roger Federer is considered by many as the greatest tennis player of all time. He has won a record-breaking 17 Grand Slam singles titles: eight Wimbledon titles, five consecutive US Opens, one French Open and five Australian Opens. He also holds the Open Era record for 302 weeks as the world no. 1 – including an amazing 237-consecutive-week stretch at the top from 2004 to 2008. He has also won six ATP World Tour Finals, the Olympic gold medal in doubles with Stan Wawrinka at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, and the Olympic silver medal in singles at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games. This year, he became the first man to win eight Wimbledon men’s singles titles.
He has donated for the past four years in a row, being the highest sportsman donor in the 2016 auction.
This year, Roger has generously donated a pair of sporty white and orange personalised Nike trainers in a size 12, both signed on the front top. He has also included a certificate of authenticity.

Small Steps Project is a UK charity that wants to inspire everyone to take a small step, because together it is possible to make a difference.
From people volunteering their skills and attending their events, to companies donating their products and services, Small Steps raises funds that go to those who need it most. First, they provide emergency aid, shoes and food to children and communities living on municipal rubbish dumps around the world. Then they provide support for children to take steps into education, and adults into employment.
They deliver their projects in two phases. In the first phase they deliver emergency aid distribution projects, providing items that will protect people from the immediate dangers on rubbish dumps—from shoes, gloves and clothing to mosquito nets, food and water. This enables them to establish the demographics of the dump and devise and implement the second phase of sustainable projects that aims to reduce the time children spend on dumps and support them in taking small steps into education.
Small Steps Project makes documentary films and organises campaigns, such as Celebrity Shoe Auctions, to boost awareness and raise funds for this huge, but often overlooked, global situation.
