These $100K+ Nike ‘Moon Shoes’ Are 1 Of Only 12 Pairs In Existence

Earlier this year, a pair of Nike’s unique, and rarified “Moon Shoes” hit the auction block, setting a record for the highest-priced sneaker sale at $437,000. To say that the brand’s distinguished heritage didn’t play a role in that sale, would be an understatement — and now, another pair of sought-after shoes has been revealed to the public.

As one of only 12 pairs thought to exist, these 1972 variants are yet another look into the illustrious lineage of Nike’s past. Like the others, the Moon Shoes you see here are based on the revered design set forth by Nike co-founder, Bill Bowerman, during the company’s earliest years, and arrive with the same iconic waffle sole, handmade upper, and low-profile persona that made them such a hit almost 50 years ago. While worn and distressed, this custom-made pair is still estimated to garner a similar price, with bids starting at a hefty $100,000 via Goldin Auctions’ website on December 7.

Purchase: $100,000+
