Loveable indie goof Mac DeMarco has shown just how popular he is by selling an autographed pair of his old trainers for $21,100 (13,840) on eBay, benefiting the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, a non-profit music and mentoring programme that empowers women through music education.

Bidding for the ripped, stained, and generally dirty old red Vans which Mac wore on tour ended on January 4, with the impressive figure being coughed-up by an as-yet-unnamed Mac fan.

In the description for the listing Mac said: “Will anyone buy an old stinky pair of shoes? I don’t know. lets wait and see. I’ll probably throw some other crap in the box before shipping it, I dunno what. If you're one of those kids who tried to take them off my feet while I was crowd surfing at some point this year, nice try jackass. But hey, here's another opportunity for you to have them.”

Watch Mac’s girlfriend Kira give the shoes an “official smell test” in the video below.
