After a 63-bid eBay war, the pair of black BCBG Maxazria heels Shania Twain wore as she took a nasty stumble during this year's CMT Music Awards has sold for a whopping $9,000. The superstar placed the strappy sandals on the e-commerce auction website to benefit her charity, Shania Kids Can, which provides support and essential resources to at-risk youth in public school systems.
"I can personally relate to the effects of growing up with difficulties at home and understand the problems kids can face while trying to fit in with the other students who are not experiencing the same disadvantages in their personal lives," Shania shares on her website. "My reason for creating this program is to ensure that underprivileged children in our communities are provided and cared for during their time at school, to help prevent them from falling through the cracks. I feel luck saved me from falling through the cracks as a child and believe it's neither wise nor fair to leave the destiny of any child to luck."
Despite suffering what the Canadian-born superstar refers to as the "one of life's most embarrassing moments," Shania remains focused on her country music comeback. The singer continues to make preparations for her Still the One Las Vegas concert series. The 'Today Is Your Day' singer's highly-anticipated return to the stage will kick off in December of 2012 at Caesar's Palace.
