A pair of autographed football boots worn by EPL Golden Boot-winner Son Heung-min have sold at auction for 12-thousand U.S. dollars.
The new owner, a college student, put in the successful bid during a charity event Monday held by the Korea Football Association.
Son wore the boots during South Korea's World Cup qualification win over Iran in March.
The buyer says he plans to keep the boots as a family heirloom.
Profits from the auction will be donated to a new football center in Cheonan.
