The original pair of shoes worn by Michael Jackson during his first-ever moonwalk will be available to buy at auction.
The auction will take place ahead of what would have been the King Of Pop’s 60th birthday, reports Hollywood Reporter. The original moonwalk from MJ was first seen in 1983 during his iconic ‘Billie Jean’ performance at NBC’s 25th anniversary of Motown special.
It was announced on Friday (April 20) through GWS Auctions that several pieces of memorabilia from the artist will be put on sale, including his black Florsheim loafers that were present during the debut of Jackson’s iconic signature move.
The auction is set for May 26 at the Hilton in Universal City. Watch the original moonwalk performance of ‘Billie Jean’ below.
Now taking to Instagram, Madonna has shared photos of the pair in attendance at the awards – marking it as ‘the best date ever’.
Speaking in an interview at the time, Madonna said: “Michael was like, ‘Well who are you gonna go with?’ I looked at him and said, ‘I don’t know. You wanna go?’ And he said, ‘Yeah, that’d be great’. And then, yes, he took me home. You wanna know what happened after that? I’m not gonna tell you.”
