Ever since the passing of the ‘King Of Pop’, prices of Michael Jackson memorabilia have skyrocketed, leaving the lucky owners with the tough decision to sell or hold. We’ve seen a ton of MJ goodies pop up for auction and at sneaker conventions (like at the 2011 Cincy Sneaker Showcase), but have you ever seen these Michael Jackson Nike Dunk Lows? Although Michael Jackson never really had any true ties with Nike (outside of the ‘Jam’ video with Michael Jordan in the Bordeaux VII), Nike went ahead and created these snake-skin Nike Dunk Lows with Michael Jackson’s name stitched on the heels of the shoe. Other details include a luxurious leather inner lining and a curious cross-like logo on the insoles of the shoe. Although dating these shoes may be hard to do, the ‘Sample’ stamp inside the shoe has worn off to a considerable degree, and had these been created posthumously, there would’ve been a lot more attention to these one-of-a-kind samples. Check out the additional images after the jump and let us know what you think of this unreleased sample Nike Dunk. via VMV.
