You might not be able to afford a trip to the moon, but you will have a chance to pay for Stephen Curry's "Moon Landing" shoes.

Curry plans to auction off his custom "Moon Landing" Curry 6 sneakers to raise money for STEM education in the Bay Area, according to ESPN. He wore them during Thursday night's game against the Rockets at Oracle Arena.

The custom sneakers feature a moon rock print with a NASA logo and "United States" on the toe tips, while stars and stripes adorn the shoes' tongue tabs.

Last month, Curry appeared on a podcast and said that he thought the 1969 moon landing was fake. However, he later clarified that he was joking. Curry then interviewed retired astronaut Scott Kelly on Instagram Live and accepted NASA's invitation to tour Houston's Johnson Space Center when the Warriors visit the Rockets in March.

Curry plans to sign the sneakers and auction them on eBay in a collaboration between DonorsChoose.org and the Stephen and Ayesha Curry Family Foundation. The auction will run from Jan. 6-13 on eBay.
