$ 437,000 for one of the first known Nike shoes
That ‘vintage’ is in fashion is evidence. That collectors (those who can afford it, of course) pay money for items that perhaps another person would not arouse and would not even pick it up from a trash if they saw it, too. All this comes because a lover of old shoes has recently acquired at auction one of the first Nike models to remember. It's about ‘Moon Shoe’, some 1972 hand-made and inspired shoes, eye to data, in a waffle maker. They have paid for them $ 437,500.
A collector with his own museum in Toronto
They have been acquired by a millionaire collector named Miles Nadal and This is a world record by far exceeding the previous record. Nadal, which last week acquired another 99 lots in a private auction last week, plans to display everything in its private museum in Toronto. Apparently, it far exceeded expectations, which were expected to sell for about $ 160,000.
“I’m delighted to get the iconic Nike‘ Moon Shoes ’, one of the rarest pair of shoes ever produced, and a true historical artifact in the history of sport and pop culture, ”said Nadal.
