UK Gangsters' £20k shoe collection brings £4,738

Hundreds gathered for the auction of 22-year-old criminal Isaiah Hanson-Frost's extensive collection of Gucci, Balenciaga and Christian Louboutin trainers. Hundreds more bid on-line.

The gangster was sentenced to six years in jail for shooting a gun at a car carrying rival gang members. His 55 pairs of footwear loot was proceeds of crime. Hanson-Frost, of Gloucester, was quickly dubbed 'Twinkle-Toes' by the UK press. Top lot was a pair of Christian Louboutin High Top trainers, which retail for around $ 1200.
