1972 Nike Moon Shoe

Named after its signature (and now deteriorating) tread that resembled the footprints left behind by astronauts, this 1972 Nike Moon Shoe is a rare relic. Handmade by Geoff Hollister under the direction of Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman, they were worn in that year's Olympic Trials by marathoner Bruce Mortenson, and were one of just a dozen pairs made. The nylon uppers were imported from Japan, the now-iconic Swooshes attached with fishing line, and the outsole cut, glued, and stitched by hand, making these a truly unique piece of sneaker history.
