Sock from Foot Run Over by Brit: Sold!

10/28/2007 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rick's sockHey y'all -- it's gone! The lucky winner is Leo Freedman of, who will receive the tire-tracked sock worn by TMZ cameraman Rick, when Britney Spears ran over his foot in her Pumpkinmobile Benz -- and TMZ is donating the $585 to the Children's Defense Fund, in her honor! Leo said, "Our goal is to support a good cause and make people smile at the same time."

This is the most infamous sock in the history of hosiery. Few, in fact, no other cotton sock has achieved so much notoriety in such a short time. The only other white cotton sock so close to greatness was worn on the, ahem, nether regions, of Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Keidis -- and has been lost to history.

Now this sock will be preserved by the winning bidder -- for all eternity, or approximately 50 washings. TMZ, saving the world, one filthy sock at a time.

Special thanks to the swell peeps at for handling this auction for us.

Something smells fishy...    

Last time I checked, the high bid was $1025. What happened to the rest of the cash? Y'all are so lame.

What a tacky stunt! But hey! If socks like that will fetch $500 for a worthy cause, I'm sure Britney would be obliged to run over as many TMZ photogs feet as are willing to line up in her path

People retracted their bids folks... it happens! Not to mention, they were probably shady in the first place.

For the life of me, I can't understand why anyone would pay anything for a stupid sock. What does a person do with the sock once its in there possesion? I don't know, maybe frame it and hang it on the wall with the words,,,the sock Britney Spears ran over. This is the craziest thing I have ever heard of.

Why don't you donate that money to the campaign to make it illegal to stalk celebrities to the point of tears. To the former sock wearer (with sandals! ugh!): get a life loser!
