Lady Gaga is in luck as the brand Alexander McQueen has come out with three new pairs of Armadillo boots. Their remake of these extreme heel boots are for a good cause as all proceeds will be going to UNICEF to help earthquake victims in Nepal.

If Gaga wants to snatch herself a pair she must get herself to the Christie’s Handbags & Accessories Auction taking place today at noon, Tuesday July 14, until next Thursday, July 23.

We first saw these boots at the Alexander McQueen ‘Plato’s Atlantis’ spring/summer 2010 show and were designed by Lee Alexander McQueen. Due to the structure of the boots, they were never produced for wholesale, which left the market open for only 21 pairs of the boot.

Some of those 21 can be seen at many exhibitions and museums all over the world. Several of pairs are on display now until August 2 at the Savage Beauty exhibition in London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.

The brand whipped up three more pairs, which were handcrafted in Italy and made with wood and python skin, so they could be put up for auction to help the U.S. fund for UNICEF, which will be assisting Nepal earthquake victims in April and May. 100% of the proceeds will go to the fund.

The shoes will be auctioned online at christies.com/onlineonly; With a starting bid at $10,000
