Nelly’s turn on Dancing With The Stars resulted in his shocking finish as a finalist as well as some Hip Hop inspired footwear from Jordan’s to Nike’s and more courtesy of The Shoe Surgeon. Now with DWTS officially wrapped, the Country Grammar rapper’s custom dance shoes are being auctioned off to help young women who are survivors of human trafficking.

At least 10 of Nelly’s custom dance shoes are being sent to The Teen Project, an organization aiding young women who’ve suffered trauma and homelessness. The entire collection is projected to be worth over $50,000.

Throughout 2020, Nelly has become a strong advocate for The Teen Project, helping raise over $820,000 in 2020, $300,000 above their total for all of 2019. Nelly’s efforts alone have propelled others to donate to the organization, bringing in an additional $30,000, according to TMZ.

The St. Louis icon didn’t walk away with the mirrorball trophy on DWTS but his next major move is taking him to the big screen. He’s set to play fellow STL native and rock legend Chuck Berry in a biopic centered around Buddy Holly.
