Stadium Goods & Sotheby’s Are Auctioning 100 of the Rarest Sneakers Ever Produced

Nike is hot on your heels.

The Nike "Moon Shoe" one of only about 12 pairs of the handmade running shoe designed by Nike co-founder and legendary Oregon University track coach Bill Bowerman, is seen in this Sotheby's image released on July 11, 2019.

Premier sneaker and streetwear marketplace Stadium Goods has partnered with auction house Sotheby's for an online auction featuring 100 of the rarest sneakers ever produced. Although, Nike "Moon Shoes" were worn during the year's Olympic trials by athletes such as Bruce Mortenson, a runner with five marathon victories and a national masters record, this pair of Nike "Moon Shoes" from Sotheby's are the only pair to have never been worn.

In addition to the online-only auction, Sotheby's is showcasing the sneaker collection at its NY galleries from today until the auction closes on July 23.

Elsewhere, Nike continues to dominate the auction, with the limited edition 2011 and 2016 versions of the Back to the Future Part II-inspired sneakers also included among the styles up for grabs.

Noah Wunsch, global head of eCommerce at Sotheby's, said the sneaker sale was bringing together "art, culture and fashion" and marked another step in the auction house's expansion of offerings of highly coveted luxury goods.

Some of the rarest and most coveted Nike sneakers are going on auction at Sotheby's in NY.

Shown in this undated photo is the Nike Mag, Back To The Future 2016 shoe. The 2016 version, one of only 89 pairs produced and complete with self-lacing technology, is estimated to sell for about $70,000.

Additional vintage sneaks in the sale come from Adidas, Air Jordan and Kanye West's Yeezy collection.

Sneakerheads take note: right now, in NY, the USA outpost of Sotheby's is currently housing 100 of the world's rarest and most sought-after sneakers.

Of the sneakers available, the 1972 Nike Waffle Racing Flat "Moon Shoe" was called "the auction's crown jewel".
