Sir Roger Bannister's four-minute mile shoes sell for £266,500 at auction

In 2015 Roger Bannister’s spikes sold at auction for 266,500 pounds. The original estimate by Christie's was 30,000 to 50,000 pounds. How much will the brand new Nike Moon Shoes sell for tomorrow? Sotheby's estimated their value at $110,000 to $160,000.

The famous running shoes sell for more than eight times their estimate, as former athlete says 'time is right to part with them'

The womens pair has crepe soles that are made of uncured latex instead of Waffles. The womens pair also says Moon in a bunch of different languages on the inner liner.

Believe it or not these shoes were inspired by Nike Moon Shoes and the Super Bowl Trophy. They are called the Nike 1972 QS. They are part of a three pack of Nike Dress Shoes. They were made at a time when Nike owned Cole Haan which helps explain why they exist.

When Nike Vandals originally released in 1984 some people called them Moon Shoes because they resemble the boots worn by astronauts that walked on the Moon. You’re looking at an original pair of Vandals and three different retro releases. For comparison I’ve also included a picture of “The Missions” which were inspired by the boots worn by the astronauts.

We’ve all heard the saying “Once in a Blue Moon” but do you know what a Blue Moon actually is? A Blue Moon is the second Full Moon in the same calendar month. Full Moons occur roughly every 29.5 days so it is very rare for two Full Moons to occur in the same calendar month. These Blue Moon Air Jordan 1s are part of a four pack of Air Jordans. They got the nickname Blue Moons because the colors listed on the box are Summit White, Blue Moon, and Black. The pair on the left is my size and the pair on the right is my wife’s. My Moon Shoe Collection is ours.

The Nike Moon Racer is an updated version of the Original Nike Moon Shoe! Nike released 7 colors of them. The first two releases (String/Volt and Black/Grey) were inspired by the past and the present. The third, fourth, and fifth colors released at the same time and only the third sold out. The sixth and seventh releases are quickstrikes. They’re the only ones with all mesh uppers. They were inspired by Nike LDVs. I gave Cassidy Quinn a pair for her birthday.

In May 2017 Eliud Kipchoge, Zersenay Tadese, and Lelisa Desisa attempted to break the two hour marathon in Nike Zoom Vaporfly Elites. The shoes were only made in three sizes (8, 9, and 10) and they were handmade to the exact specifications of each athlete.

About halfway through the breaking 2 race one of the announcers said, “The footwear looks like a space ship for your feet.” Then the announcer compared the attempt to break a 2-hour marathon to the Moonshot! This is what he said… “What people don’t remember about going to the Moon was it did all sorts of things in a variety of fields. It accelerated the development of the semi-conductor, it miniaturized computers…they even created freeze dried foods for the astronauts to take. And I think this attempt has done the same thing…it has accelerated the development of apparel, of footwear, of some of the thoughts about how to run faster, whether it be the pacing strategies or other things.”

Nike released the Zoom Vaporfly 4%, Zoom Fly, and Zoom Pegasus 34 in the breaking 2 signature ice blue fox colors but they never sold the Zoom Vaporfly Elites to the public. A handful of pairs were given away. They came in special wood boxes. When you open the box the packaging reads EVERY MOONSHOT NEEDS A ROCKET.

Did you know that Nike made Buzz Aldrin his own sneakers? In 2009 Nike released the Buzz Aldrin Mavrk Rocket Hero in very limited quantities to celebrate the 40th anniversary of man walking in the Moon. The uppers feature photographs that Buzz actually took when he was orbiting the Moon. The black and silver swooshes represents the light and dark sides of the Moon. Buzz’ signature is embroidered on the heels. The tongues feature a Moon Man graphic along with the words Buzz Aldrin Rocket Hero. The insoles feature graphics that resemble Buzz’ footprints on the Moon. The outsoles and liners feature Buzz’ drawings. Nike also made matching hats and backpacks!
