One of the rarest and most historic sneakers ever created—the Nike Moon Shoe—will be up for grabs next week as part of Goldin Auctions' annual holiday auction.
As the story goes, the model was created by Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman and features a waffle sole traction pattern made from an experiment using his wife's waffle iron. When worn, the shoes made imprints similar to the footprints left by the astronauts on the moon during the Apollo missions, which is how it got its "Moon Shoe" name. According to the listing, this pair has no tag as it was custom-made, and is an approximate size between 8 and 9. Included with the shoe will be an original "Oregon" yellow jersey that dates to the '70s.
The brand has created several different iterations of the Moon Shoes, but only a very limited quantity of the original model was ever made. Earlier this year, one of the original pairs sold for a grand total of $437,500, which is a record price for sneakers sold at an auction.
Bids for the Nike Moon shoe starts at $100,000 with the auction running from Nov. 18 to Dec. 7.
