Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curryon Thursday wore two special pairs of custom shoe designs in memory of the victims of the Oakland warehouse fire that took the lives of 36 people earlier this month. The two pairs of shoes will be auctioned off to raise money for the victims' families.

Curry showed on Twitter the low-cut version of his Curry 3 shoe, which he wore during warm-ups before Thursday's 103-90 win over the New York Knicks.The word Ghostship was inscribed on the shoes to commemorate the name of the warehouse-turned-artist collective that was the site of the deadliest fire in Oakland history.

Both pairs of the shoes have the initials of the names of the people who died. The graffiti style of the custom design are meant to pay tribute to the Oakland arts scene.
