Legendary rap duo Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre have donated three rare pairs of Nike shoes that are being auctioned for charity.


The shoes are being auctioned as part of The ASCAP Foundation's third annual Holiday Auction, which began on Thursday.


The ASCAP Foundation is a charity dedicated to supporting American music creators through "music education and talent development programs."


The three one-of-a-kind pairs of Air Force 1s were designed by renowned New York artist Frankie Zombie.


Each pair is also autographed by Snoop and Dre.


According to the auction's site, each pair of shoes is estimated to fetch $5,000.

Snoop and Dre aren't the only music superstars to have donated items to the auction.


Rapper Big Daddy Kane has gifted a signed vinyl copy of his 1988 single “Ain’t No Half-Steppin,” while Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has donated a used and signed drum head and pair of drumsticks.


Country music star Chris Stapleton, pop music sensation Olivia Rodrigo, and DJ Martin Garrix have also contributed items.


Back in June, Dre was handed the first-ever ASCAP Hip Hop Icon Award for his contributions to music.


“Dr. Dre’s groundbreaking early work laid a foundation for Hip-Hop as we know it today,” said ASCAP president Paul Williams in a statement.


“As a champion for some of today’s biggest artists and a successful entrepreneur, he changed the culture around Hip-Hop," Williams added.
