Barefoot Like Beckham

8/20/2007 1:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nobody can say David Beckham doesn't appreciate his fans -- giving up his own shoes to an autograph seeker! The sole of Beckham!


TMZ was outside of a special soccer clinic for kids in Harlem on Friday, where there was an absolute frenzy over Becks' arrival. Sexy Becksy signed everything fans threw at him, including a basketball, baseball glove, football, cell phone -- even a dollar bill -- though surprisingly, or maybe not, no soccer balls.

On the way out of the clinic, one man asked Beckham to sign his shoes for him -- with Beckham going one better by actually removing the sneakers he'd been playing in all day, handing them off to the guy and walking to his car -- shoeless.

God bless Becks. Thanks for all you are doing for Football in the US. Please start calling it Football. The word "Soccer" makes about as much sense as calling Native Americans, "Indians".

Very cool of him to do that! They seem like a really nice family. I heard the Seacrest interview with V.B. on LA radio and she sounded friendly, grounded and humble.

Aw, that was kind of him. I wish a lot of other celebrities would do what David Beckham did. So what if he's got mega buck$? It's the thought that counts.

Of course, I'd probably sell the shoes on e-Bay, myself.

#2 if you call the real football sissy,that makes me wonder if you don't consider American "football" real sports with all these players carrying 400 pounds of FAT around and with a protective gear on?
Ever wonder why football is played all over the world and american football is not?
the real football players and especially tennis players should be getting paid the money american football players are getting.These people are fat;they are flying in planes from city to city and don't play every flcuking days.A tennis player flies to continent to continent and has to play despite jet lag and different court surfaces and a match can last hours and can even be postponed until someone wins you flucking idiot.Don't post such stupidity like the comment you've made here anymore.
D.Beckham didn't come from money so he knows what no having much is like;just shut your trap already.
