It's been speculated that roughly 12 pairs of Nike's "Moon Shoes" have been produced. Such limited quantity of course leaves them in high demand. Earlier this year in July, one pair set a global record for a sneaker sale, going for an insane $437,000. Now, however, another set of the Moon Shoes will soon be hitting the auction block.
This particular iteration of Nike's coveted Moon Shoes comes from Swoosh expert and collector Lindy Darrell. Based on the original design by Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman, the shoes are handmade, featuring the brand's iconic waffle outsole. The sneakers were made in the 1970s, and taking that into consideration, they remain in impressive condition.
The rare shoes are joined by an original Oregon running singlet, also from the '70s. The top is made from silk, boasting "OREGON" lettering across the chest.
The Nike Moon Shoes and Oregon singlet will be up for auction through Goldin Auctions beginning December 7. Bidding starts at $100,000.
