Blink-182 fans apparently aren’t too worried about “All the Small Things,” like a little blood on a pair of sneakers.
Travis Barker has sold a pair of his stage-worn Vans — which he rocked during the band’s 2023 World Tour — for a staggering $4,000 through collectibles company Trophy.
The one-of-one kicks, initially a non-bloody pair of size 9.5 Vans Vault x Mastermind World Shoes, feature a solid amount of creasing and a splash of Barker’s insides across the outer sole and laces. As the company describes the shoes in its initial listing, they feature “Real Blood Splatter.”
“You can almost step inside Travis Barker’s shoes with his blood soaked Vans worn throughout his 2023 World Tour,” the description for the one-of-a-kind mounted and authenticated piece reads.
“These kicks are encased in a museum-grade acrylic Trophy Case and comes ready to display.”

Someone has indeed dared to walk a mile in Barker’s shoes, as the bloody sneaks sold out within 24 hours, according to a release from Trophy. A portion of the proceeds raised in the sale will go toward non-profit Lost But Not Forgotten CA.
As for the lineup of other Barker-worn (and touched) gear, it “features a range of items, each meticulously cataloged and authenticated by Trophy and personally signed by Travis Barker.” Specifically, this includes memorabilia used during both the tour and for the creative process behind Blink’s new LP, One More Time.
Other items available in the drop are blood-stained Dickies pants, a bloody snare head, a bloody tom head and of course a bloody pair of drum sticks from the pop-punker. And for those looking for a little less of Travis on the items, Trophy is also selling non-bloody signed drumsticks and drum heads. Prices range from $750 to $6,000 for the big ticket item (the trousers).
Barker, who welcomed a baby boy named Rocky with wife Kourtney Kardashian just last month, isn’t just celebrating getting rid of his bloody clothes. He also recently celebrated his 48th birthday.
The musician enjoyed a vegan Thanksgiving dinner alongside his spouse, who uploaded a series of posts to her Instagram Story in November. “vegan thanksgiving for my baby’s birthday @travisbarker ❤️,” Kourtney captioned a clip set to a Frank Sinatra classic.
Barker, who called it the “most amazing dinner,” has been vegan since 2008 after surviving a plane crash.
“Honestly, ever since I found this way of eating I have endless amounts of energy. I can go all day, and after it all I never find myself getting tired,” he told Men’s Journal in 2017. “No matter what kind of shows I have done, or workouts I do on top of it, I still have to force myself to sleep at night.”
