A pair of crusty old Vans previously owned by the singer-songwriter fetched a hefty sum at auction.

Mac DeMarco auctioned off a pair of his old shoes on eBay with the winning bid coming in at no less than $21,100. The goofy musician donated the proceeds to the Willie Mae Rock Camp For Girls.

“I’m selling an old pair of my shoes. I’ve John Hancocked the left shoe. Will anyone buy an old stinky pair of shoes? I don’t know. lets wait and see,” wrote DeMarco on the listing.

The Canadian artist also took the time to answer a handful of peculiar questions from fans in the listing’s Q&A section. Here are some highlights:

Q: Do you have any interest in trading a jar of ghost cum for your red clown shoes? #slimer Best Jeremiah
A: I don’t think they need any ghost cum at rock camp for girls

DeMarco also got his girlfriend to participate in an “official smell test” to prove that the shoes weren’t too odorous. You can watch a video of that below. [via Pitchfork]
