A pair of vintage Nike running shoes, one of the first made by the sports giant, have fetched a crazy amount at  Sotheby’s in New York, smashing the record for sports shoes at a public auction.

The so-called “Moon Shoes” were designed by Nike co-founder and track coach Bill Bowerman for athletes at the 1972 Olympics trials.

The pair are believed to be the only ones of their type never to have been worn.

The handmade sneakers were purchased by Canadian investor and car collector Miles Nadal, who called them a “true historical artefact in sports history and pop culture.” Nadal said he intends to display them at his private museum in Toronto.
