Lady Gaga is all for a cause. The pop powerhouse gifted her custom Super Bowl Gucci shoes to Elton John for his AIDS Foundation Oscar Party.
The red white and blue platforms were made by Gucci’s Alessandro Michele for Gaga’s performance of the National Anthem at Super Bowl 50.
The shoes were auctioned off to one lucky bidder for a whopping $55,000.
