Stephen Curry's 'Moon Landing' basketball sneakers land on eBay

A professional basketball player who made headlines by calling the Apollo moon landings into question has taken his "moon boot" out of his mouth and put it up for auction.

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is offering his custom lunar landing-inspired sneakers to raise funds for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) educational program in the Oakland, California area. The Under Armour "Moon Landing" Curry 6 basketball shoes are now open for bids on eBay through a partnership between the auction site, DonorsChoose.org and the Stephen and Ayesha Curry Family Foundation.

The sneakers, which celebrate "the great American achievement of landing on the moon" 50 years ago, hit the auction block on Sunday (Jan. 6) with an opening bid of 99 cents and quickly shot up to more than $4,000 with the first 50 bids. The sale extends for a week, closing Sunday, Jan. 13 at 7 p.m. EST (0000 GMT Jan. 14).

I have to confess that contrary to popular belief I am rarely "down with the kids" and so it is again: those sneakers look ghastly.

At $15,100 for the shoes currently, some people "are with it."

That the money raised goes to STEM in the Oakland area is something great for an area that really needs help.

Does Curry still contend that the moon landings were faked?

See Steph Curry's comments from last month in speaking to ESPN. He made clear that he was not serious in speaking about the moon landings:
Obviously I was joking when I was talking on the podcast. I was silently protesting how stupid it was that people actually took that quote and made it law... For kids out there that hang on every word that we say, which is important, understand that you should not believe something just because somebody says it. You should do your homework and understand what you actually believe.
