Tony Allen is auctioning off the shoe that kicked Chris Paul in the face

Want the shoe that kicked Chris Paul in the face worn by Tony Allen? Well, you can buy it. 

Allen is putting the shoe up for auction on eBay, with his signature, for charity. 

The play happened in a game between the Clippers and Grizzlies on Nov. 19, where Allen crane-kicked Paul in the mouth, apparently accidentally. Regardless, he was ejected and suspended a game for it. 

The money raised from the shoe will go to Youth Villages, which via PBT, is a Memphis area charity “dedicated to helping emotionally and behaviorally troubled children and their families live successfully.”

There are currently 47 bids on the shoe and it's at $5,400. The money from it will go towards buying presents for kids involved in the Youth Villages program. And not just that, but all money raised -- up to $10,000 -- will be matched by Allen. 

I'm glad that the shoe will be creating something special for kids in Memphis," Allen said. "Everyone deserves to have a Christmas to remember. I'm glad I can be a part of their memories."
