Auction Results

Julien's 'Icons of Rock n' Roll 2013' auction this past weekend showed that Elvis Presley still has the power to attract big buyers with Elvis' Blue Suede Shoes selling for $76,800. 

The size 10 brogues were the only pair of blue suede shoes that Elvis ever owned. They were ordered for him in 1956 after he had a hit with the Carl Perkins song Blue Suede Shoes. Elvis wore the blue suede shoes so much that the soles of them have circular wear caused from his gyrating dance moves that caused the females in his audiences to scream and swoon.

Presley owned the shoes for four years, and then he gave them as a gift to his roadie and the best man at his wedding, Joe Esposito. This was in 1960 after Elvis returned from having served in the US Army.

Accompanied by a letter from Nudie's Rodeo Tailors requesting Elvis' sizes. This is the only known pair of Elvis' personally owned blue suede shoes.
