The king’s socks are auctioned for an estimated price of millions of dollars.
About 40 years after Michael Jackson first performed the legendary moonwalk dance, fans will have the opportunity to own a pair of idol companion socks.
The socks on auction were special models, encrusted with crystals and designed specifically for Michael Jackson. The late American singer wore these socks on TV Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever in 1983.
It is estimated that buyers have to pay 1-2 million USD to get the socks 1-0-2.

Ed Kosinski, chief executive of Gotta Have Rock and Roll, a celebrity auction site, said the socks looked pretty old. However, this person was not sure how often Michael Jackson wore crystal-encrusted socks after the Motown anniversary show.
The socks were not the only item the king of pop could make to the auction. The suit “American Suit of Lights” worn in Victory Tour is expected to cost up to $ 20,000. The Chicago Bulls shirt, signed by Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan, cost the buyer about $ 20,000.
