Elvis Presley’s famous blue suede shoes are to go up for auction in Los Angeles later this month.

The iconic brogues were ordered for the star after the release of his hit 1956 single “Blue Suede Shoes,” and he wore them on stage for four years before gifting them to his friend Joe Esposito.

In 1994, they were purchased by museum owner Chris Davidson, who put them on display at his Elvis-A-Rama institution in Las Vegas.

The shoes are tipped to sell for around $80,000 when they go under the hammer at the Julien’s Auctions sale on Friday.
