Times are weird.

True fact: indie-rock's Mac DeMarco just sold his old shoes on eBay for a total of £13,800. The eBay listing had read: "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." 

All proceeds will be donated to the Willie Mae Rock Camp For Girls.

The eBay listing came with a list of all the shows his shoes had attended.

Here are their highlights, starting with the Rock En Seine festival.

And in case you were wondering, the shoes did pass the scientific "smell test", as conducted by Mac DeMarco's girlfriend.
