Nike Moon Shoe Waffle Racer

It's hard to overstate the importance of Nike's original "Moon Shoe". Famously born when Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman poured rubber into his wife's waffle iron, the shoe offered both better grip and better comfort than other running shoes of the time, giving the fledgling company its first real innovation. The pair seen here was hand-cobbled by early Nike employee Geoff Hollister, and was one of just 12 pairs created for runners at the 1972 Olympic Trials. Made from white nylon with black Swooshes, they're the only pair known to exist in unused, deadstock condition, and are being offered by Stadium Goods and Sotheby's.
