He wore the shoes first in 1983 for the "Motown 25" television special rehearsal with his hit "Billie Jean" and the loafers have the lable "Michael #2", it was the Florsheim Imperial leather shoes.

The auction house has a starting bid of $10,000 for the shoes, which are still in wonderful condition, according to GWS.

The shoes worn by the legendary Michael Jackson when he performed his signature "Moonwalk" for the first time on stage are up for auction.

The famous white glove that Jackson wore reportedly sold for $350,000 in December 2009. Though Michael had been in the limelight for 14 years since he started with the Jackson 5 in 1969, his performance at Motown 25 is often credited to be his breakthrough performance as a solo artist.

Lightweight leather shoes that had belonged to the famous musician, has never been put up for auction.

The shoes are now owned by choreographer and dancer Lester Wilson, who says that Jackson gave him the shoes in his dressing room while after rehearsing with his brothers for the special. "We are so very honored to be able to offer them at auction", GWS owner Brigitte Kruse told CNN. GWS nonetheless mentions that there are signs of wear and tear on the soles.

A couple pieces of music history can be yours if the price is right. One of the shoes is also numbered "Michael #2". Pictured: The late King of Pop's gold and platinum "Thriller" records on display at an auction preview in NY on November 17, 2009.
