Justin Bieber's known to have a serious shoe game and now one of his kicks is helping a sick baby. Friends of the parents of a British baby with cerebral palsy are auctioning off their Bieber shoe to pay for life-changing $150,000 surgery to help the ailing child walk.

18-month-old Ayla-Mae Hemms suffers from spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy palsy and is profoundly deaf. Her family needs to raise at least $100,000 to undergo selective dorsal rhizotomy surgery to help her become more independent and have the chance to walk unaided. That's where one of Bieber's black trainer shoe comes into play...

Friends of Ayla's family came to the rescue. The Waite's family decided to auction off the Justin shoe they owned to help baby Ayla out. The kids won the shoe in a raffle while they waited in line to meet the Biebs during a VIP meet-and-greet at his concert in Birmingham last year.

"When I said if there was anything we could do to help Ayla-Mae, the kids said, 'what about Justin Bieber's shoe?'," Khloe Waite said during a recent interview. "Our target from the auction would be £1,000, we would be really happy with that. All the money would go towards the Ayla-Mae Three Steps Forward Charity."

How sweet is that? Most Beliebers would sleep with his shoe, let alone give it up. Find out more about the girls' meeting Justin here.

The shoe is currently up for auction on eBay. How swaggy is that?
