Mark Covert’s Moon Shoe
The Waffle Sole was Nike’s first innovation and Mark Covert’s Nike Moon Shoe was the first Nike Waffle to ever cross a finish line. Ten pairs of these Moon Shoes were handmade by Geoff Hollister and given out to athletes who were competing in the Marathon. Five athletes wore them. Mark Covert was the first one who crossed the finish line and successfully completed the race. He finished seventh with a time of 2 hours and 23 minutes.
