OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is auctioning off two special pairs of shoes to raise money for victims of the Oakland warehouse fire.

KCBS reports (http://cbsloc.al/2ifgOkj) that Curry teamed up with a local artist and had two distinctive pairs designed.

As of Wednesday afternoon on EBay, Curry's shoes had received more than 150 bids and were at a combined $20,000 on the auction site.

Curry wore the pair of white sneakers with the words "Oakland Strong" printed on them during a recent game against the New York Knicks. Warriors officials say he wore the other, more colorful shoes with the words "Ghost Ship" on them, during practice.
