Virgin America, Eleven Inc., and SearchnDesign in Milan, Italy have created the Virgin American First Class shoe. These are inspired by Virgin America’s First Class amenities and come with features such as a Wi-Fi connectivity, mood-lighting, a video display and a built-in phone charger.

The company is auctioning the only pair available on Ebay and the bid currently stands at $8,700 (approximately Rs 5,80,000).

The shoes are hand crafted in Milan, Italy and are made of Italian white leather. The shoes are powered by rechargeable battery with up to 3 hours of battery life.

The proceeds will be donated to Soles4Souls, a non-profit charity committed to fighting poverty through the distribution of shoes and clothing.

The shoes will be delivered in a custom-made plexi glass display case along with LED lighting.
