The Blue Moon Shoes were handmade by Bill Bowerman. They are very rare. The Waffle Soles are more regular and uniform than the Handmade Moon by Geoff Hollister. The tongues do say Nike unlike the handmade pair. There are no midsoles on the shoes (just Waffle Outsoles and Nylon Uppers) so the shoes will not deteriorate and crumble. The waffle soles are gum in color.
