Rickie Fowler's Arnold Palmer-themed shoes just raised a BIG amount for charity

Last week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, Rickie Fowler wore a commemorative pair of Puma Golf Hi-Tops in honor of Arnold Palmer.

Just two pairs of the special shoe were made. Fowler wore one pair, and signed the right shoe from that pair and left it in Palmer’s office at Bay Hill. The second custom pair, personally autographed by Fowler, were put up for auction with all proceeds going directly to Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation.

Bidding on the shoes started at $200. On Tuesday, it was announced that the final bid on the pair was for $25,300. All proceeds will directly support Arnie’s Foundation.

“The response to these shoes has truly been phenomenal, fueled by a love for Arnold Palmer and Rickie’s fondness and respect for The King,” said Grant Knudson, Puma’s global head of footwear and accessories. “We are honored to have been a part of this touching tribute to Arnold’s legacy along with Rickie and Dominic (Chambrone), helping raise more than $25,000 for Arnie’s Foundation.”
