What a Lucky Colbert Nation!

Our friends at ecorazzi have pointed out one of the coolest auctions going on at eBay right now—the auction to win those ridiculous (in an awesome way) faux-fur boots that Stephen Colbert wore in his Christmas special.

That’s right—the next time you find yourself in your log cabin, hiding from a bear and singing a duet with Willie Nelson, you can be doing so in classic Colbert style! Stephen apparently claims that the boots are made of yeti fur—and fur from make-believe animals is the kind that I like best.

The auction ends tomorrow, so act now! The costume pieces worn in “A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All” are being auctioned off one at a time, and all of the proceeds are going to Feeding America. Pretty sweet, right?

Of course, the auction has already raised more than $1,000, so if you don’t have an extra $1.5K to shell out on some memorabilia but still want to look snazzy, you might consider these vegan faux-fur boots from MooShoes. Um, holiday wish list, anyone?
