That's one for the money: The only pair of blue suede shoes ever owned by Elvis on sale for £80k

The only pair of blue suede shoes Elvis Presley owned after his hit single are expected to sell for $80,000. 
The iconic size 10 brogues were ordered for him after he hit the charts with Blue Suede Shoes in 1956.
They became part of Elvis's wardrobe of stage outfits and were worn by him so much the soles have circular wear from his famous gyrating dance moves that wowed audiences.
They are the only known pair of blue suede shoes owned by Elvis in existence.
Elvis owned them for four years before he gifted them to his best man and roadie Joe Esposito during a wardrobe clear-out after returning from duty in the US Army in 1960.
In 1994 they were bought by museum owner Chris Davidson who put them on display at his Elvis-A-Rama institution in Las Vegas.
Experts have tipped the shoes to fetch $80,000 when they go under the hammer.
Included in the sale is a letter from the manager of Elvis' costume suppliers Nudie's Rodeo Tailors requesting The King's clothing sizes including his shoes.
A pencil note on the 1956 letter reveals Elvis was a size 40 chest, a 32 inch waist and size 10 shoes.
The tailors also created Elvis's famous $10,000 gold lame suit, worn by the singer on the cover of his 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong album

During an interview at Power 105'sBreakfast Club, the "Bound 2" rapper vented about a variety of topics, including corporations, but took the time to gush about his fiancé, Kim Kardashian.

"Man, Imma tell you something, at nighttime when I go to bed with my girl, I would change my last name," Kanye said with a chuckle.

This Guy’s Wife Got Cancer, So He Did Something Unforgettable. The Last 3 Photos Destroyed Me.

We at TakeastepEnt in support of BBN decided to share this story as it will increase awareness on cancer and  Angelo’s organization that helps women with financial difficulties during their trials with breast cancer.
The first time photographer Angelo Merendino met Jennifer, he knew she was the one. They fell in love and got married in New York’s Central Park, surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones.
Five months later Jen was diagnosed with breast cancer. From Angelo’s blog: “I remember the exact moment…Jen’s voice and the numb feeling that enveloped me. That feeling has never left. I’ll also never forget how we looked into each other’s eyes and held each other’s hands. ‘We are together, we’ll be ok.’”
Throughout her battle, Angelo decided to photograph it. He wanted to humanize  the face of cancer on the face of his wife. The photos speak for themselves.

Angelo and Jennifer’s story is tragic, but it’s in the face of a tragedy such as this that we rise above. In Angelo’s case, he has started an organization to help women with their financial struggles during their trials with breast cancer.
Please share this story with everyone you know to help Angelo’s story get out, scroll back up to the top and click the share button. Thank you.
You can get that and much more at Angelo’s blog:
