Johnson’s shoes. (

On Monday night Titans running back Chris Johnson offered up a touching tribute to the victims of the Newtown tragedy, writing the names of all the Sandy Hook Elementary School victims on his shoes.

Johnson, who had a 94-yard touchdown run in the game, is taking things a step further by donating his cleats to an auction that will raise money for charity.

You can bid on the shoes here. With 16-plus days remaining until the auction ends, there were already 33 bids with the highest at $3,011.00.

The shoes are signed and dated by Johnson and, most importantly, 100 percent of the funds raised by the auction will be donated to the United Way's Sandy Hook School Support Fund.

Should you not be able to raise a couple grand to pick up the shoes, you can also text NEWTOWN to 80888 to donate $10 to the fund.
