Each of the following celebrities has autographed a single shoe of the pairs donated by "Carlos by Carlos Santana" footwear, which will be on display at and available for bidding from February 5 through February 14 on eBay by searching "celebrity autographed red shoes".

In addition to the online auction, "The Red Shoe Initiative" will include local "Red Shoe" events in communities across the United States.
